After several attempts I still have no sound, I made sure to check Alsa > pci >Intel HD as directed the first page. The sound does work with the kubuntu live cd.

Sysinfo list:

GCC version: 4.2.3 (i486-linux-gnu)

It appears that even if I go back to a previous kernel the sound is still lost so it may be something I did other than the kernel compilation. it is time consuming switching to a different kernel because I must reinstall the Nvidia drivers each time I switch kernels I also found that with the older kernels that came with the hardy upgrade I have trouble getting the nvida driver to install. I am currently using Nvidia version 173.14.08

I had similar results using kernelcheck rather than following the directions at the beginning of this thread. Likewise I installed the nvidia driver manually using the Nvidia download and also using envyng -t


Where did I go wrong?

thanks in advance
