IMX6 board designed with no audio, how to remove audio errors in Android

Hi we've got an IMX6 board running the Kit Kat release with kernel 3.0.35. The board doesn't have the SGTL5000 chip on it and I was wondering how can I tell Android to not bother with the audio?

I'm getting a lot of errors related to audio and I'm just worried it might be contributing to the instability of the device.

I'm not receiving any feedback so I'm going to make a new issue asking how to implement the dummy ALSA driver for use in the Android BSP

Hi Luke,

     I had tested it on customer's board, there was not audio codec on the board, only HDMI was supported.

     Because there is HDMI codec in i.MX6 processor, during linux booting, HDMI codec will be loaded , if you don't need SGTL5000, you only need not to select SGTL5000 driver when you run "make menuconfig" to configure linux kernel, this will not affect android normal work.

Regards,

Weidong

My device uses the parallel LCD interface and doesn't use audio at all.

I'm using the SabreSD code as my starting point.  I've left all of the HDMI code in and removed unneeded audio drivers from my config.

During boot I get the following output:

usbcore: registered new interface driver snd-usb-audio

mxc_hdmi_soc mxc_hdmi_soc.0: MXC HDMI Audio

imx-hdmi-soc-dai imx-hdmi-soc-dai.0: Failed: Load HDMI-video first.

Initialize HDMI-audio failed. Load HDMI-video first!

ALSA device list:

  No soundcards found.

But since I'm using the Parallel LCD the HDMI video isn't loaded, I think.

Then in Logcat I get the following:

01-01 00:00:08.560: I/AudioPolicyManagerBase(2095): loadAudioPolicyConfig() loaded /system/etc/audio_policy.conf

01-01 00:00:08.580: E/audio_hw_primary(2095): no supported sound card found, aborting.

Is there a simple way to remove all audio?
