  • Hi,

    I have a board with a M1573 southbridge, where a ALC880 soundcodec is integrated. I use Alsa 1.0.9a with Linux 2.6.8-24.11. Kernel is built with soundcore module only. This is the output of lspci

    0000:00:1d.0 Class 0403: ALi Corporation: Unknown device 5461
    Subsystem: Holco Enterprise Co, Ltd/Shuttle Computer: Unknown device c790

    I found it out by enabling/disabling sound in BIOS. I added a line to patch_realtek.c, where the vendors and devices are defined.

    { .pci_subvendor = 0x1297, .pci_subdevice = 0xc790, .config =
    ALC880_5ST_DIG }

    After compiling, installing and module snd-hda-intel loading I still have --no soundcards -- in /proc/asound/cards.

    What else can I do?

    • Alsaconf sees my soundcip now. I added the pci id in hda-intel.c:

          { 0x10b9, 0x5461, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, 0 }, /* ULi M1573 */

      But when alsaconf tries to load the driver, it hangs. In /var/log/messages I get:

      linux kernel: ALSA alsa-driver-1.0.9a/alsa-kernel/pci/hda/hda_intel.c:458: azx_get_response timeout
      linux last message repeated 618 times

      Any hints?
