Hello everyone,
I have tried and tried but cannot seem to get sound to work. It randomly started working once, but now it stopped again and I don't know why. What information do you need? My computer is an acer cb3-131 chromebook.

jazzbassoon,

We need to see the content of /proc/asound/devices so we can see all your sound devices.
We need to know which output you would like to use, analogue or digital. (Speakers or HDMI)

The output of
Code:
lspci -nnk
will be good.
If its a USB headset, the output of
Code:
lsusb
would be good too.

Here it is from lspci -nnk
Code:

I'm trying to use the internal speakers, not the HDMI output.
Here is aplay -l
Code:

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****

  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: HDMI [HDA Intel PCH], device 7: HDMI 1 [HDMI 1]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0


Also my /etc/asound.conf
Code:

defaults.pcm.!card 0
defaults.pcm.!device 0


Pretty sure I've unmuted everything in alsamixer

Also figured that kernel config would be important. This is everything set from cat .config | grep SND

That would be a problem.

Your sound card can work at the 44.1kHz sample rate used by most audio stored on your PC or the 48kHz used by HDMI.
However, it can't do both at the name time. When you unmute both, the sound card does HDMI only, which is not what you want.

Any mute switches with S/PDIF or IEC in their names must remain muted.

Something similar can happen if you have a headphone control too.
If that's unmuted, the speakers are muted.

The top left of the AlsaMixer screen looks like
Code:
┌─────────────────────
│ Card: HDA ATI HDMI 
│ Chip: ATI R6xx HDMI


What chip do you have?

snd-hda-intel does not always get the wiring detection right and sometimes needs a module parameter to make it work.

Ok I muted the HDMI stuff which is on a different card I think. My alsamixer has PulseAudio as the chip and the card. Is that the problem?

jazzbassoon,

PulseAudio is a wrapper around alsa. It can get in the way when alsa isn't working.

Leaving HDMI on a card you don't want to to use for analogue audio is fine.
Leaving digital outputs on the card you want to use is not.
It doesn't matter if you have the external digital sound connectors, the chips are usually common, so the functionality will be there, ever if its not wired to the outside.

Removing PulseAudio while we sort this may help.

Is that like emerge --remove pulseaudio or just kill pulseaudio? or disable it?

jazzbassoon,

Just ripping in out is a bad this as anything that depends on pulse will be broken.

Code:
equery d pulseaudio
shows that pulseaudio is optional everywhere except www-plugins/google-talkplugin.
The right way to do this is add -pulseaudio to your USE flags in make.conf.
Then
Code:
emerge -uDNav @world
so that USE=-pulseaudio takes effect.
Lastly, with nothing requiring pulseaudio,
Code:
emerge -c pulseaudio
will remove it, providing portage agrees that nothing needs it.

Having said all that, sound does not work anyway, so ripping out pulse may be informative.
Code:
emerge -C pulseaudio
Will do that - portage won't check and will leave broken things behind.
However, alsa does not use pulse, so for diagnostics it may not matter.

You can always put pulse back if you want to too.
There is a quick way to do that.
While you still have pulseaudio installed, do
Code:
quickpkg pulseaudio
That saves a binary of your pulseaudio install.
You reinstall the binary with
Code:
emerge -K1av  pulseaudio

Alright so I had lots of stuff that needed pulse, including qtwebengine that took almost 3 days to compile... So I quickpkg it and removed it

Still no sound, alsamixer has the card as byt-max98090, but no chip.

jazzbassoon,

Post a screenshot. (text) of alsamixer now.
Put it between code tags to preserve the formatting.

Put your kernel .config file onto a pastebin. wgetpaste can help there.
We need it all, unfiltered. Settings that are off are as important as settings that are on.

See those arrows in right side? This means there is more. You can see them all in amixer output.

jazzbassoon,

I've seen a sound system like that once before, on my arm64 chromebook.
It was a problem to get to work too.

Its a mtk-rt5650 card rather than your byt-max98090. I'll compare control names and settings but not tonight.

Yeah it does seem like some things are a little more picky with these chromebooks

jazzbassoon,

This looks interesting ... https://github.com/GalliumOS/galliumos-baytrail/blob/master/usr/share/alsa/ucm/byt-max98090/HiFi.conf

The control names don't match your control names though, so you can't use that file as is.

So I got it working it seems. I went back to the kernel config and added some more codecs and probably more hardware modules than I needed. But after doing that, my soundcard changed from a bytmax98090 to a chtmax98090. I guess this is really a cherrytrail instead of a baytrail? Once I changed my asoundrc accordingly it worked! I guess next I'll reinstall pulseaudio and see if that messes things up.

Got pulse going again and everything seems to be working correctly. It is very soft though. Are there any tricks to boost that?

Somewhere in that enormous list of controls there must be one or two that affect the volume. I see a few EQ controls in there, maybe they're set to 0 instead of 50%.

jazzbassoon,

Check your settings against the list in the link I posted.

The common settings are
Code:
      cset "name='Left Speaker Mixer Left DAC Switch' on"
      cset "name='Right Speaker Mixer Right DAC Switch' on"
      cset "name='Digital EQ 3 Band Switch' off"
      cset "name='Digital EQ 5 Band Switch' off"
      cset "name='Digital EQ 7 Band Switch' off"
      cset "name='Biquad Switch' off"
      cset "name='Filter Mode' Music"
      cset "name='ADC Oversampling Rate' 0"

      cset "name='DMIC Mux' DMIC"
      cset "name='MIC2 Mux' IN34"
      cset "name='MIC2 Volume' 10"
      cset "name='MIC2 Boost Volume' 0"

      cset "name='ADCR Boost Volume' 4"
      cset "name='ADCL Boost Volume' 4"
      cset "name='ADCR Volume' 11"
      cset "name='ADCL Volume' 11"

      cset "name='Headphone Volume' 10"
      cset "name='Speaker Volume' 10"

      cset "name='Speaker Left Mixer Volume' 3"
      cset "name='Speaker Right Mixer Volume' 3"
      cset "name='Record Path DC Blocking' on"
      cset "name='Playback Path DC Blocking' on"

      cset "name='Headphone Left Switch' off"
      cset "name='Headphone Right Switch' off"
      cset "name='Headphone Switch' off"

      cset "name='Speaker Left Switch' off"
      cset "name='Speaker Right Switch' off"
      cset "name='Ext Spk Switch' off"

      cset "name='Headset Mic Switch' off"
      cset "name='Int Mic Switch' off"


Your control names have the final ' Switch' or ' Volume' missing from their names.

For speakers you also need
Headphones off
Code:
      cset "name='Headphone Left Switch' off"
      cset "name='Headphone Right Switch' off"
      cset "name='Headphone Switch' off"


and Speakers On
Code:
      cset "name='Speaker Left Switch' on"
      cset "name='Speaker Right Switch' on"
      cset "name='Ext Spk Switch' on"


Its possible that you are listening to the crosstalk between two outputs.

That does manually what alsa-ucm would do with that file. However its not included in media-libs/alsa-ucm-conf.

Well I think it's as loud as they'll get. I also may have damaged the speakers a few weeks ago. I was turning everything up in alsamixer and smelled some burning smells. My right speaker doesn't work at all, so I'm just dealing with the left speaker. It very well could be damaged too. But I have an external speaker I tested with and it worked great. Thanks again for all the help!
