    Default backtrack 3 beta - no sound [Realtek ALC862 @ Intel]

    hi there everyone

    straight to the point, i got no sound runnin' bt3 beta notebook - toshiba satellite a200-14d, sound - Realtek ALC862 @ Intel 82801GBM ICH7-M - HD audio. i've tried to fix it with Kmix or alsa mixer, even downloaded the driver from realtek cite and installed it, however bt3 have a built in realtek driver. Still nothin' . When i'm tryin' to open some music files with audacious it say:
    Unable to play files.
    The following files could not be played.
    Please check that:
    1.they are accessible
    2.you have enabled the media plugins required
    Btw, xmms player plays files, but there's still no sound, only the slider is movin' ;/

    After a few days of searchin' everywhere i got no idea why that is so.
    please, maybe anyone can help

    btw bt2 rocks!!

    Default Same prob...

    Have a ATI audio device HDA Audio shows up in alsamixer as Realtek ALC861-VD

    /proc/asound/cards returns;

    0 [SB ]: HDA-intel- HDA ATI SB
    HDA ATI SB at 0xd0400000 irq 16

    Tried alsaconf, alsamixer, even downloaded and intalled alsa-1.0.15 then downgraded to loads of other version's and it hasnt fixed it, starting to think its a kernel issue.

    Default ;/

    Yeah, i've tried everythin' without any result ;/
    maybe something with kernel, however other stuff works perfect (after a few fixes) , even that Intel wireless 4965agn. I'll just wait for a stable release

    edit: also got a sound blaster live external usb card and it's not workin' too ;/

    Yeap it's the Kernel, lol, you can read about it in the slack forums something to do with it hooking calls to the sound card from the wrong directory.

    Compile new kernel and viola, problem solved!

    Yeap I tried alsa conf, even tried editing the files by hand all to no avail

    Stupid slack updates

    They take a perfectly good working configuration and they cant resist sticking their sticky fingers in it! Grr! :lol:

    Default backtrack 3 Final - no sound [Realtek ALC862 @ Intel]

    Hi guys,

    I am having the same issue that other guys had in this thread,
    with no sound coming from BT3 HD install.
    My laptop is a Toshiba A100-338 and the sound card is Realtek ALC862 @ Intel. I tried everything already mentioned in this forum.
    Is compiling the new Kernel the only option I have?
    Would that option mess with packet injection capabilities of my Orinoco Gold Card? Compiling the Kernel can also be a pain for somebody like me who does not have advanced Linux knowledge.
    Is there a Tutorial on how to compile the Kernel maintaining the same settings needed by Backtrack 3?
    Thanks in advance for your input.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    I had the same problem on a Toshiba Laptop with an Intel Sound card.
    My solution was to compile a newer Kernel.
    I don't remember now which version, but you might try a few and see what fits you best. After recompiling the new Kernel with Intel Sound card support, everything was fine. Hope this helps.
