View Full Version : 5.0.1 CD and Sound Detection on Intel D945GNTL

I downloaded the Knoppix 5.0.1 CD English version and discovered that during the boot process my sound system is not activated. I can get it to work by manually going through the "alsaconf" process.
Here is an excerpt of the lspci comand after booting is complete:
0000:00:1b.0 0403: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)

Any suggestions?

Okay, I have to admit, it's the old problem again, the specific output connector I was using had to be unmuted. Sound is properly recognized, however, I was using the front connector of the motherboard and not the rear connector. The front speakers are muted in kmix by default.

I needed to unmute the front speakers in kmix and sound was working.

My question now is how to have Knoppix automatically turn on the front speakers when booting.

Any suggestions?
