michael@michael-desktop:~$ Then I started the ALSA Driver Compilation Section on the Solutions Guide. Here is the log from the module assistant

I didn't know how to copy all of the code, so here is the end of it with the error:

Sounds like its a mess (excuse the pun!)

You can recover alsa with this command:

sudo aptitude --purge reinstall linux-sound-base alsa-base alsa-utils linux-image-`uname -r` linux-ubuntu-modules-`uname -r` libasound2

Try running the command again and ensure you reboot. I had messed up so much similarly, I had to give it three goes before it worked again!

Also just check you have an etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file in place

Here is the contents of the installed file if its missing

It may be worth mentioning that I am having trouble getting my sound to work in Windows as well. This is my desktop and I dual boot Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows XP. I have installed the drivers for the sound in XP and installs with errors and wont work.

What should I do?

I figured out the reload command issue. Along the line I created a file that didn't belong. Its gone and here is the new output


michael@michael-desktop:~$ sudo alsa force-reload
lsof: WARNING: can't stat() fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon file system /home/michael/.gvfs

Any other suggestions, before I just put a new sound card in? I hate giving up.

So do you get anything with aplay -l after this? Sound modules apprear to be loading OK.

However as you also appear to be having hardware problems (or you have just been unlucky with Windows and Ubuntu!) try a different sound card....

I guess I will try a different card. I think I have an old one lying around.

Just wanted to put some closure to this thread. Since I couldn't get my onboard sound to work in Ubuntu or Windows (even with the proper drivers in Windows), I chalked it up to a hardware malfunction. I installed an old sound card that I had lying around and have no issues. My sound is working in both OS's. Thanks Jose for your effort.
