ALSA - Sound issues when upgrading (no sound)

linux-howto

http://www.linuxforums.org – Running Fedora 10 - via mythdora on a Abit KN9 Ultra motherboard with an AMD Athlon 3800 dual core processor. I have an onboard motherboard soundcard and just got a Geforce 210 Video card that has audio built in (nvidia nforce 570 ultra chipset - and verified the audio codec chip says ALC883). I was trying to get the HDMI audio to work on the Geforce 210, so I saw that latest ALSA version was supposed to support this. So, silly me, installed version 1.0.22 from source since there was only 1.0.21 via yum. Since then, I can't get any audio to work. My aplay -L or -l are blank. If I use alsamixer, it shows HDA NVidia as the card and the chip as ALC883 but then says "this sound device does not have any controls." If I select sound card 1 instead of 0, it says same thing except chip is "Nvidia ID b". My ALSA information file is attached. The only one difference with this file - I updated the alsa utilities to 1.0.22 also since I uploaded this. Any help would be appreciated. I'd be happy just getting the onboard sound working again. Thanks in advance. Attached Files ALSA_INFO.zip (3.8 KB) (HowTos)
