Hi gentoo users,
I tried to install alsa drivers on my laptop but
when I'm launching alsa-mixer, the output is:
"This sound device does not have any controls."
I read the manual, the docs but without success.
A help would be appreciated

Informations:

My Kernel config: http://sprunge.us/giiF
PS: I have some audio drivers enabled and any alsa configs files like ~/.asoundrc
Thanks !

seyt,

Welcome to Gentoo.
Sound systems are in two parts' a sound chip and a CODEC.
Code:
CONFIG_SND_HDA=m
CONFIG_SND_HDA_INTEL=m

That's correct as far as it goes.

You have all the possible CODEC drivers disabled.
Code:
# CONFIG_SND_HDA_RECONFIG is not set
# CONFIG_SND_HDA_INPUT_BEEP is not set
# CONFIG_SND_HDA_PATCH_LOADER is not set
# CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_REALTEK is not set
# CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_ANALOG is not set
# CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_SIGMATEL is not set
# CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_VIA is not set
# CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_HDMI is not set
# CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_CIRRUS is not set
# CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_CONEXANT is not set
# CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_CA0110 is not set
# CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_CA0132 is not set
# CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_CMEDIA is not set
# CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_SI3054 is not set
# CONFIG_SND_HDA_GENERIC is not set

Unless you know the right CODEC for your handware, enable them all.
Alsa mixer will tell you the right one, then you can disable the rest at your next kernel update.
