You are using VIA chipsets, have you try PCI latency fix ?

Q : The suspend function does not work on my L8400B notebook under NT4 environment, why?
A : BIOS 0106 does not include the suspend function (S3,S4) because Aureal audio driver is unable to support it. Please note that CPU doze mode and Local standby (HDD, LCD standby mode) can still work.

ADVANCED FEATURES
Q : How to install audio && modem driver on Windows 2000?

A: This Win2K build (any latest win2K build for that matter) comes with an installed Aureal vortex WDM driver. For proper operation, you need to uninstall the existing WDM driver from the O/S and install the update.

Before installation, set the folder options to show all hidden folders. You can set it from file manager -> Folder option -> View-> enable "show all hidden folders".

1. Uninstall

1. Uninstall the Multifunction adapters -> "Vortex Multifunction PCI Parent" You can uninstall the adapter from Win2000's Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager -> Multifunction adapter -> Vortex Multifunction PCI Parent.
2. Delete the following files, please go to C:\winnt\inf directory
"Wdma_aur.inf"
"wdma_aur.pnf",
"Adm_mult.inf",
&quto;Adm_mult.pnf",
&quto;Adm_port.inf",
"Adm_port.pnf".
3. Rename the 'driver.cab' file to be 'driver.cat' from c:\winnt\driver cache\i386 directory.
4. Delete the 'Adm8810.sys' 'Admjoy.sys' two files from c:\winnt\system32\dllcache directory.
5. Delete the 'Adm8810.sys' 'Admjoy.sys' two files from c:\winnt\system32\drivers directory.
6. You will see the "Windows File Protection" message pop up. Please click [cancel] button and then [yes] button to remove the driver.
7. Reboot.

2. Install

1. After reboot the notebook, window 2000 will auto detect the Multifunciton adapter.
2. Follow the installation.
3. In the middle of the installation, it will ask the following files:

"ksuser.dll", "ks.dll", "portcls.sys", ".drv", and "aurealgm.arl"

Ksuser.dll -> c:\winnt\system32
ks*.dll -> c:\winnt\system32\drivers
*.drv -> c:\winnt\system32
portcls.sys ->c:\winnt\system32\drivers
Aurealgm.arl ->'the driver location'.
Adm8810.sys ->'the driver location'
Amdjoy.sys ->'the driver location'

4. Finish the installation and Reboot.

Your au8810 is Vortex Advantage which do not has SPDIF, the black 4-pin socket is Analog CD-IN.

It even work on AMD64, do your motherboard use VIA chipset ?

For au8810, only SQ1500 has the SPDIF

The following is wrong !!!

The registry value "DigitalJackEnable" of Win9x driver skip the initialization of SPDIF if it is not SQ1500

#ifndef CHIP_AU8820
vortex_eq_init(vortex);
vortex_spdif_init(vortex, 48000, 1);

.<dev_name> (Dot Device)

.dev_name

Directs the VMM to send a Debug_Query message to the given virtual device. If the virtual device supports a debugging interface, it displays information about its operating state.

dev_name
Can be the name of any virtual device.

Because virtual devices are not required to support the Debug_Query message, many do not produce debugging output. If a virtual device does generate output, it is typically device specific and not normally useful in a typical debugging situation.

Examine the sample virtual devices to determine how to use the Trace_Out macro, and the In_Debug_Chr service to generate useful debugging information.

It is strange that D3hot+ on your au8810 when au88x0 do not has any power management code.

Set the power-state as D3hot by calling snd_power_change_state().

To JimDog,

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?postid=913723#post913723

Your CD player output analog signal to headphone jack in front panel and through cable from CD player to CD IN (black socket) of AC97 mixer.

http://bbs.gzeasy.com/index.php?showtopic=56821

The linux software only perform play/pause/stop/fastforward function of CD player.

You need an audio cable if you want to listen CD music.

or

http://www.linuxgazette.com/node/view/1429

You can also use speaker-test in alsa-util-1.0.5 to test the speaker or aplay to play wav file.

There is a known bug (sound playing fast) for au88x0 in alsa-driver-1.0.4

You should update your kernel to 2.6.7-rc2 if you are using kernel 2.6.5 / 2.6.6

For those using alsa-driver-1.0.4 and kernel 2.4.x, you should upgrade to alsa-driver-1.0.5

To LC,

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?postid=843999#post843999

It look like you have also installed alsa oss emulation.

snd_pcm_oss 50052 0
snd_mixer_oss 17696 2 snd_pcm_oss

There is no need to install oss emulation unless you have an application which do not support alsa. Most applications such as xmms, mplayer, gxine have native alsa support. you just need to configure those multimedia applications to use alsa instead of oss.

au8810/au8830 has 10 bands hardware equalizer, you will need to use alsamixer to enable/bypass hardware EQ and change the gain of 10 controls of hardware EQ since those oss mixer cannot control the Vortex hardware EQ.

The Vortex hardware EQ is much better than the software EQ of xmms.

If you take a look at ac97_codec.c

http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/checkout/alsa/alsa-kernel/pci/ac97/ac97_codec.c?rev=1.135

and ac97_patch.c

http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/checkout/alsa/alsa-kernel/pci/ac97/ac97_patch.c?rev=1.52

and page 25 , 26 of STAC9704

http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa/ftp/manuals/sigmatel/9704spec.PDF

static int snd_ac97_try_volume_mix(ac97_t * ac97, int reg)
{
unsigned short val, mask = 0x8000;

if (! snd_ac97_valid_reg(ac97, reg))
return 0;

switch (reg) {
case AC97_MASTER_TONE:
return ac97->caps & 0x04 ? 1 : 0;
case AC97_HEADPHONE:
return ac97->caps & 0x10 ? 1 : 0;

You will notice that the optional true line level out (ac97 register 04) may not appear in alsamixer. It depends on whether bit4 of reset (ac97 register 0) is on or off.

ac97_codec.c will create a headphone control for ac97 register 04 if it is on,

If bit4 is off, you will not able to unmute it by alsamixer since there is no patch for stac9704 in ac97_patch.c to create this LNLVL_OUT control

For those who still cannot get any sound from your au8810, please check which codec is used by your au8810 using "cat /proc/asound/au8810/codec97#0/ac97#0-0" and values of ac97 registers using "cat /proc/asound/au8810/codec97#0/ac97#0-0+regs"

It seem that the adb routes table is not cleaned up after you use some alsa applications to play music. (e.g. XMMS)

They call snd_pcm_open() once at the start of the program.

They call snd_pcm_hw_params_alloca() and set up the hardware parameters such as channels,rate,format,period size,buffer size using snd_pcm_hw_params(), snd_pcm_sw_params() before they call snd_pcm_prepare() to play each song from play list.

However they never call snd_pcm_hw_free() and they just call snd_pcm_close() before they exit.

snd_vortex_pcm_hw_params() can free adb routes of previous song and allocate new adb routes when they play next song.

snd_vortex_pcm_hw_free() is never invoked since some alsa applications never call snd_pcm_hw_free()

This means some adb routes are not removed.

I think snd_vortex_pcm_close() should do error recovery for this issue before it close the substream when invoked by snd_pcm_close().

You also need alsa-utils in addition to alsa-driver and alsa-lib

Some kernel 2.6.x distrubtion do not has alsa-utils. Use alsamixer instead of oss mixer to change volume.

All volume are muted by default at bootup, alsamixer allow you to change setting but it don't save setting.

You need to use alsactl to save mixer setting before shutdown and restore the setting after boot-up.

You must recompile the kernel 2.6.x after the patch

It you cannot get sound only from XMMS,
this is because the XMMS use set_buffer_time_near() and set_period_time_near() which may not obtain a workable period size for certian combination of buffer time and period time ( au88x0 require the period size must be a power of 2).

XMMS cannot play mono sound mono U8 8000Hz/11025Hz wav file on my au8830.

    • WARNING **: alsa_setup(): Set buffer time failed: Invalid argument.

You must re-compile xmms alsa plugin using the version of alsa-lib which match the version of alsa-driver.

or

Do the graphical equalizer (Spectrum Analyser) in vortexcontrol ( support #103017 ) display EQ Peaks from the hardware equalizer of AU8810/AU8830 ?

I am another individual who is experiencing this problem, and there's been a lot of discussion, but no real clear answer. My XMMS and alsa-lib are current, using 2.6.5 release, and not getting any au8810 sound. What's the status on this now?

update xmms to 1.2.10 and recompile xmms

xmms-alsa plugin depends on alsa-lib

Refer to mailing list, two users with asus l8400b notebook (AU8810 onboard) can use alsa driver but another user with au8810 sound card have irq problem.

http://mail.gnu.org/archive/html/openvortex-dev/2004-01/msg00003.html

It seem that irq related to aureal modem.

It seem that vortex_Vort3D_connect() mess up the adb route table of au8810 and au8830.

You have to select default or hw:0,0 as audio device in xmms-alas output plugin.

The specturm analyser of xmms appear to be "working" but there will be no sound from speaker if you select wt hw:0.2 or a3d hw:0,3

"amixer contents"

There will be no sound if you enable Hardware Equalizer and the scale of 10-bands Equalizers is set to zero in alsamixer or amixer.

You can disable Hardware Equalizer (Pass through) or set the scale of 10-bands Equalizer to middle.

Are you using ALSA or OSS as output plugin in xmms ?

ALSA OSS emulation seem to be disabled on Kernel 2.6

You need to use aplay (alsa-utils) to play .wav sound and arecord to record sound from mic.

Do you au8810 sound card work properly in Windows ? ( This ensure your hardware is OK )

Is your card SQ1500 (coxial out) or Advantage ?

http://www.watch.impress.co.jp/akiba/hotline/991106/newitem.html
http://www.dearhoney.idv.tw/MUSEUM/soundcard-07.php

Do your au8810 has a quad codec ?
Please post the result of "cat /proc/asound/au8810/codec97#0/ac97#0-0" and "cat /proc/asound/au8810/codec97#0/ac97#0-0+regs".

I notice the alsa driver try to output the sound to both AC97 codec and SDPIF out at the same time for au8810 and au8830. ( Please check the volume of mixer in and mixer output value. )

Refer to the mailing list, Philipp can use the alsa-driver version of aureal driver on his asus notebook (onboard au8810) but also fail to use the alsa-kernel version of aureal driver (The alsa-kernel version has experimental support for wavetable)

http://mail.gnu.org/archive/html/openvortex-dev/2004-03/msg00039.html

You will need to find out how to disable those routines related to wavetable and which part of the code causing "vortex: IRQ reg error" by comparing the alsa-kernel version with alsa-driver version http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/alsa/alsa-driver/pci/au88x0/Attic/

or

You can try the alsa-driver-1.0.2 on Kernel 2.4

I applied the two patches you had mentioned & recompiled the kernel. Checked the mixer settings - mute & volume (un-muted & increased the volume), but I still don't hear the sound. I don't get any error messages when I play a sound file in XMMS, I even see the "sprectrum analyzer" work. Could this be a problem with the card itself (the connectors that I use to connect to the speaker). I cannot think of anything else. The only problem I see is the error message at system bootup - vortex: IRQ reg error.

If there isn't anything else for me to try I will go ahead and buy a new card.

You have to increase the master volume and pcm volume after you unmute the mixer in alsamixer.

You need to fix those bug described in the patch

http://mail.gnu.org/archive/html/openvortex-dev/2004-03/msg00032.html

Please post the result of you Media Controller (Class 0401) using "lspci -vn".

You will also need VIA workaround patch if your motherboard is using VIA chipset ?

I downloaded the latest source, compiled and tried again (as per the comments below). I still can't hear the sound. The only difference from before was that the message "<3>bad adb fifo reset" is now gone. Here is what I see now:

Vortex: init.... <6>done.
vortex: revision = 0x2, device = 3
vortex: Erratum workaround enabled.
vortex: IRQ reg error

What other checks can I perform to see what the problem is? I can give you any other information if you need. Please help! Thanks.

There are 16 "bad adb fifo reset" error messages when vortex_fifo_init() try to init 32 memory-mapped i/o ports.

In au8810.h

#define NR_OF_ADB 0x20

In au88x0_core.c

static void vortex_fifo_init(vortex_t * vortex)
{
int x;
unsigned long addr;

/* ADB DMA channels fifos. */
addr = VORTEX_FIFO_ADBCTRL + ((NR_ADB - 1) * 4);

Sun 28 Mar 2004 04:10:21 AM UTC, original submission:

I hear no sound at all. I have followed all the instructions, made sure lsmod shows the snd-au8810 module loaded, un-muted the sound via mixer, but I still hear no sound at all. dmesg shows some errors, not sure if that is the problem:

Vortex: init.... <3>bad adb fifo reset!<3>bad adb fifo reset!<3>bad adb fifo reset!<3>bad adb fifo reset!<3>bad adb fifo reset!<3>bad adb fifo reset!<3>bad adb fifo reset!<3>bad adb fifo reset!<3>bad adb fifo reset!<3>bad adb fifo reset!<3>bad adb fifo reset!<3>bad adb fifo reset!<3>bad adb fifo reset!<3>bad adb fifo reset!<3>bad adb fifo reset!<3>bad adb fifo reset!<6>done.

Please help! Thanks.
