Hello all! I did a fresh install of Manjaro on a Dell Latitude E6510 today.
The issue I am having today, is that I have no sound output. This is a laptop, I am only trying to listen to sound through the laptop speakers. There is no external monitor connected.
To give you some information about my system, I am including the lspci outputs for both graphics and sound:
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio (rev 05) Subsystem: Dell Latitude E6510 Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel Kernel modules: snd_hda_intel 01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation High Definition Audio Controller (rev a1) Subsystem: Dell Latitude E6510 Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel Kernel modules: snd_hda_intel 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GT218M [NVS 3100M] (rev a2) Subsystem: Dell Latitude E6510 Kernel driver in use: nvidia Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidia
I am seeing an audio device that is some sort of Nvidia controller, and another that is intel. I am wondering if there’s some sort of way to force the use of 00:1b.0.
I also will show the basic output of a speaker test:
Playback device is default Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 1 channels Using 16 octaves of pink noise ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1035:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave Playback open error: -2,No such file or directory
I also want to note that when I open the ncurses interface using “alsamixer”, the only device I can pick is the Nvidia device, which shows a handful of SPDIF channels that all show open or “00”.
As another sanity check, I opened “pavucontrol” while playing a video on youtube. The sound level meter bounced around with the music as a working system might show, but I was hearing no sound. Under the “profile” options, I was only able to see “HDMI” options that all show “unplugged, unavailable”.
I’m not familiar enough with how the system handles sound to know how to troubleshoot it. I am not looking for any fancy high definition sound from Nvidia, I’m sure the basic one from intel will work for me, I just watch Youtube.
Thank you for any assistance you can provide!
