I have Asus K55V, fedora 17 64 biti instaled. I have audio from laptop, but I canot use an audio sistem because when I connect the audio jack in audio out port, it doesn't get out any sound anymore. The sound from laptop stops and audio sistem doesn't work either. In win 7 it works OK. The sound hard from my laptop is provided by realteck.
I think I'm accurately describing what's going on. Ever since I installed arch many months ago, I've had this issue. It takes two reboots to get the sound working. Reboot one: no sound; reboot two: sound. If you look in the pic, The system is showing duplicates of the same device, each with a different name. I can make any the default and I'll have audio.
Recently I have upgraded my Asus B43s from 12.04 to 12.04 HWE and have lost all audio upon start up. When going to the sound setting, there are no devices available. Once I run command "lspci | grep Audio" in the terminal, my audio comes back. If I shutdown or restart, I have to do the same thing over again before the sound is available.
new #! user here,I have a USB audio card (see info below) and chose it in ALSA mixer, and still don't get sound. I looked around and found USB audio threads but most are about #! not finding the USB audio, but mine sees it.
