Bug Description

This worked fine in 10.10, I did a clean install of 12.10 and sound has not worked. Can't find any other bugs that help me fix or sort this problem. Sound Settings reports only "Dummy Output" in the output settings.

Please let me know if any other info is required.

I have also tried running aslamixer after being recommended to try and unmute the card with this result.

$ alsamixer

OK, I have some sound now, but my Output field in Sound settings is empty.

I got sound working by black listing edac found from here.

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1158033#p1158033
http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/edac.txt

Not sure how to proceed.

post the output of alsa-info.sh

Hi Raymond, thanks for taking the time to look at this.

The script prompted me to upload to alsa-project so here is the url.

Thanks again.

Same problem here on the same Dell hardware
boot.log shows
udevd[402]: '/sbin/modprobe -bv pci:v00008086d0000277Csv00001028sd000001DEbc06sc00i00' [411] terminated by signal 11 (Segmentation fault)
I can see the call trace in dmesg similar to the one posted by Raymond

This results in syslog being flooded with messages (every second)

If I boot from the 3.2.0 kernel I kept from 12.04, everything works fine

Can you post the output of

pactl list

did pulseaudio create any active profile or sink since the driver provide "pcm playback volume" for stac9200 ?
