oss-solaris-v4.0-1002-i386: Unknown HDA codec

Postby hakimoto » Tue May 29, 2007 6:55 pm

Hi,

just upgraded to the latest (1002) build. Works fine, but throws this message on boot:

Code: Select all
NOTICE: Unknown HDA codec 0x11c13055


Also, ossxmix has a zillion controls, can it not be invoked to just show vmix0-vol, vmix0-in and vmix0-out? Running on OpenSolaris b54, with a 1280x800 resolution, the ossxmix command produces a giant window and one has to scroll all the way to the right to get the master volume control.

Volume control inside xmms doesn't work by the way, tried all possible settings, in any case only default is available as a mixer device.

Some additional info:

Do you know who makes the codecs? What does Windows say?

Hi,

Windows doesn't say anything, since I don't run Windows. ;)

Still, sorry I forgot to mention that:

The machine is a MSI MS-1057 laptop, the audio chipset is RealTek ALC 882H SoundBlaster compatible (supports Dolby).

I've been running it for a while with OSS 3.9 for Solaris x86 and now OSS 4.0, and it's picked up as a Intel HD audio.

By the way, the sound is also noticeably more silent since the upgrade from rc8 to build 1002. Via headphones it's barely noticeably, but via the built-in speakers very much so. About 40 % less loud than before.

Just googled the codec identifier, gave very few results, but several posts in the linux community say it's an Agere Systems chip!?!

Hi, little update:

with build 1003, the same message "NOTICE: Unknown HDA codec..." is thrown on boot.

Volume is still significantly lower than in pre-1002 builds...

Hi,

Run ossxmix and turn up the levels. In prior versions, we had set the volume to max.

Dev,

the levels are already at maximum. And at maximum, the sound is about 40% less loud than pre-1002 builds.

Cheers, H

OK can you look at rc9-179 from
http://www.4front-tech.com/test/rc2-179 ... 9-i386.pkg


De-install the 1002 build by running pkgrm oss and then install the 179 and see if that works differently. If it does, I will ask you to send me some info
using a HDAudio debug program.

Ok, just tried it:

With rc2-179: no notice on boot about unknown codec. sound is loud from both speakers and headphones at max volume. give it a 10 on a virtual scale...

With 1003: notice on boot about the unknown HDA codec (see above), sound is about 25 - 40 % less loud than with rc2-179, on the virtual scale about 6.5 - 7.5 at max volume.
