    Acer Aspire 6920G Sound Card Solution for the #bug issue with Intel ICH 8 (Realtek 88

    Acer Aspire 6920G Sound Card Solution for the #bug issue with Intel ICH 8 (Realtek 889) & Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex

    UPGRADE YOUR ALSA** 1.0.18a +

    In the fist line i will try to explain what the commands do, and in the second line how to execute the command... Let's start...
    *S.O.S Don't use in terminal the "" only the commands WithOUT the ""

    1) Upgrade the ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture)) Drivers to the latest

    a) Login as root by

    " sudo -s "

    b) To start the installation download this script at your home folder:

    " http://www.box.net/shared/454ic17as0 "


    c) This script will download the ALSA 1.0.18a drivers from the ALSA-PROJECT website and install them automatically.
    After that your pc reboots, so don't do anything else...

    " sudo chmod +x alsa_setup "
    " sudo ./alsa_setup.sh "

    d) After the reboot you have to download at Home directory the following file
    ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/people/tiwai/...erb-0.3.tar.gz
    ** if the site goes down google it with hda-verb-0.3xx

    e) Login as root by

    "sudo -s "

    f) Brings up a text editor in SuperUser mode (which is necessary to edit system files)

    " gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base "

    g) Look for cluster of lines beginning with "options." If you have the line
    " options snd-hda-intel model=default "

    Change it to " options snd-hda-intel model=acer-aspire "

    Save the file

    h) Go at Home directory, right click and extract the file hda-verb-0.3.tar.gz

    i) Now cd (change directory) to the hda-verb-0.3

    " cd hda-verb "

    j) compile the file with
    " make "

    k) Copy it at /usr/local/bin type

    " sudo cp hda-verb /usr/local/bin "

    l) Edit /etc/rc.local by typing

    " gksudo gedit /etc/rc.local "

    m) This will bring up your text editor again, this script is empty by default, for our purposes we must add this line before the
    "exit line"

    " /usr/local/bin/hda-verb /dev/snd/hwC0D0 0x15 SET_EAPD_BTLENABLE 2 "

    You're finally done, reboot your machine and you should have sound card working.
    it works with 2.6.27-10-generic kernel and 2.24.1 Gnome

    cd hda-verb-0.3

    make

    sudo cp hda-verb /usr/local/bin

    add this before the line with the word “exit”

    /usr/local/bin/hda-verb /dev/snd/hwC0D0 0×15 SET_EAPD_BTLENABLE 2

    sudo reboot

    Hi, thanks the guide worked and I have sound at long long last, but I still have a problem in that whenever I use it with headphones, I get sound out the speakers on the laptop and out of my headphones at the same time, is there anyway to stop this?

    @mc6415 Hey, are you using the aspire 6920? Jack sensing seems to work for most of us, maybe you didn't upgrade the right way, did u have OSS4 installed before you did the ALSA installation?

    A work-around is to right click on your volume applet (or u can make a shortcut to the volume control from applications > sound & video > volume control on your panel, then in there just mute/unmute whichever you are using (speaker/headphones) etc.

    Nikk, the HDMI is a totally different driver, you might want to research such as my laptop did not come with the HDMI controller, find what model it is and google or post another thread describing your problem.

    CHeeRs
    When you first dont succeed, google- google again
