ALSA PCI Vendor, Device and Sound Card Driver List

Last Updated: June 7, 2011

  1. Run lspci and find the line containing the words "Multimedia audio controller:" or "Audio device:". Write down the PCI bus ID number given in the left-most column with the format nn:nn.n (in red).

    $ lspci
    00:1e.2 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 03)

  2. Run 'lspci -s nn:nn.n -n' to identify the hardware vendor:device ID of the sound card for the given PCI bus ID.

    $ lspci -s 00:1e.2 -n
    00:1e.2 0401: 8086:266e

  3. Search the table below by vendor:device ID. In the example above the vendor:device ID is 8086:266e. As the list is long, use the vendor/manufacturer links in the table below. Identify the ALSA driver you need to use.

Warning: The PCI ID device names associated with a vendor:device ID may change with time. Different kernels may report different names for the same card (On Debian systems you can update the list with the command update-pciids). Also, there are many subvendors and subdevices out there in the chipset jungle whose names are not listed here. Therefore, search preferentially by vendor:device ID and pay less attention to device and manufacturer names reported by lspci.
