PostPosted: Fri Dec 14, 2018 6:45 pm    Post subject: Sound driver issues Reply with quote

Running vanilla-4.19.8 and latest KDE, SystemD, ALSA, and PulseAudio.
The problem is that i'm not getting any sound from my Creative Sound Blaster Z even though Pavucontrol shows activity on the output.
On other distros this was fixed by installing alsa-firmware, but no luck here.

Code:
[    0.625285] snd_hda_intel 0000:01:00.0: Direct firmware load for ctefx-sbz.bin failed with error -2

Error -2 is "not found". Make sure firmware is available at the time the module loads. When driver is built in <*> then obviously the firmware must be also built in.

Excellent observartion- specified the firmware file in CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE and it seems to have loaded now.
Though i'm still not getting any sound from the sound card.
My intergrated sound seems to be working, just not the sound card. Even after configuring Pavucontrol and Alsamixer.

aplay -L
Code:
sysdefault:CARD=Creative
    HDA Creative, CA0132 Analog
    Default Audio Device


/etc/asound.conf
Code:
defaults.pcm.!card Creative
defaults.pcm.!device 0
default.pcm.!ctl Creative
