  • Katharina says:

    Hardware is actually recognized but the audio chipset drivers for the Realtek ALC892 don’t actually work and none of the ones I could find seem to make sound output either!

    • LHG-Team says:

      Hi Katharina,

      I really suppose that this is not a problem with the driver (i.e. kernel module) but with the sound layers above. Often, missing sound is caused by a misconfiguration of Alsa or Pulseaudio.

      Can you post here your output of dmesg, to make sure that it is not caused by by the kernel module (furthermore, dmesg output would be very interesting for the detailed description of the mainboard).

      To get some hints and to find the cause of a misconfiguration please also provide infos like distribution(s) you tested, “cat /proc/asound/cards”, “cat /proc/asound/modules”…
