I've spent the last 3 days trying to get sound to work properly with ALSA. I referenced the Wiki and some forum posts, but the options and codecs suggested for HD Audio appear to not work. I tried playing audio through a page in Firefox and speaker-test and none worked. I would like to start from scratch and see what are the suggested values I should have for sound to work. These are the values I have from lspci:

Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio (rev 05)
Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Cedar HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 5400/6300 Series]

and here are the values for alsamixer:

HDA Intel MID, Realtek ALC 269
HDA ATI HDMI, ATI R6xx HDMI

Thanks.

For reference I followed the guide here (wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/ALSA) adding support for Realtek audio. (I didn't see any ATI HTMI options) I built the kernel, update packages with the ALSA flag, set permissions, and have alsasound start up at boot.

Just curious, when you first load up alsamixer, is the default card it loads the HDMI or the intel one? As that will tell you which one alsa is trying to use by default. I had the similar issue, in that alsa defaulted to my HDMI output, instead of the analog one. Which I had to force the system to load the intel card first (so it will be set as default).

Try enabling all of the HD audio codecs in your kernel config and then clean, compile, and install your kernel (or run genkernel) and reboot.

It defaults to the Intel one, not the HDMI one.

Didn't work, unfortunately.

In alsamixer, is your Master unmuted?
Can you post
Code:
cat /usr/src/linux/.config | grep SND

Code:
lscpi -kk
