You can check your syslog (/var/log/syslog) for detection and error messages related to hda. (in the terminal, type “StyleEdit /var/log/syslog”) It should be supported out of the box by the built in hda driver.
Please check our bugtracker (which umccullough posted a link to) if a similar problem exists. If not, please create a new ticket. Include the full listdev, syslog, and anything else you can think of. It might even be useful to enter KDL and type the ints command and record the output (or take a picture and attach that). This should give your ticket a running start
The hardware should be supported by Haiku’s HDA driver, which still has some problems.
You can check if this driver is in use by looking in the media preferences to see if it finds any inputs/outputs for it… you can also type the following from a terminal to see which drivers are loaded:
Since we have a driver that should support your hardware, you really search out bugtracker and add comments to other issues you think are the same, or add a new issue if you feel that is relevant. That way we can fix the HDA driver so that it works for more people out of the box
OpenSound is always a last resort, and if you use it you will have to remove the Haiku hda driver first.
Thanks bbjimmy, I think I might have an issue with my audio device. At the end of the output of listdev it says:
~> device Multimedia controller (Audio device) [4|3|0]
sh: syntax error near unexpected token `('
~> vendor 1002: ATI Technologies Inc
sh: vendor: command not found
~> device 437b: IXP SB4x0 High Definition Audio Controller
sh: device: command not found
I have a Soundblaster Live, but when I install it Haiku won’t boot properly. I was hoping that by removing the default audio driver, then installing the Soundblaster card, I could get Haiku to boot and then try another audio driver.
