    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    As the next step you'll have a look at the HD-audio models file, which is
    available in the first post. Lookup the model-id matching your codec.

    Even though you run a known codec ALC268, it doesn't mean that the mapping of ports works correctly. Every motherboard looks different.

    You need to look up a model-id which comes close to your machine in above mentioned file. You can even try all of them one after another.
    You need to reboot the machine everytime you change this.

    You need to assign this model-id to your diver: snd-hda-intel in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.base

    the line at the bottom of the file will look like :

    options snd-hda-intel index=0 model=xxxxxx

    xxxxxx is the id as shown in the file matching your machine best.



    If all this is still not working you need to run the script with the -snap option to get the very latest drivers from the development tree.

    As I read above you need to install the patch program first before your run the -snap option: sudo apt-get install patch

    I am on HP TX1005AU which means

    Should I append this line you mentioned to my file? (as below)

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    As you can see the codec is a different one:

    ALC268 is yours:

    Code:
    ALC267/268
    ==========
      quanta-il1	Quanta IL1 mini-notebook
      3stack	3-stack model
      toshiba	Toshiba A205
      acer		Acer laptops
      acer-dmic	Acer laptops with digital-mic
      acer-aspire	Acer Aspire One
      dell		Dell OEM laptops (Vostro 1200)
      zepto		Zepto laptops
      test		for testing/debugging purpose, almost all controls can
    		adjusted.  Appearing only when compiled with
    		$CONFIG_SND_DEBUG=y
      auto		auto-config reading BIOS (default)
    Your HP is not in there. I'll checkout that latest snapshot.

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    The newest snapshot comes with quite some new codecs.

    I'd recommend better to install it. ( use -snap option)

    Afterwards (after reboot) you can look up codec details here:

    less /proc/asound/card0/codec#0

    In the header you'll find your codec.


    You can edit the file:

    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.base

    Just add the line mentioned earlier

    The new HD-Audio-Models file you'll find here:

    /usr/src/alsa-driver-1.0.19.old/alsa-driver-1.0.19/alsa-kernel/Documentation/HD-Audio-Models.txt

    run: gedit /usr/src/alsa-driver-1.0.19.old/alsa-driver-1.0.19/alsa-kernel/Documentation/HD-Audio-Models.txt


    I gotta run now. The principle how to tackle your problem should be clear by now.

    If all this won't help you need to write a trouble ticket for this. You need to run the alsa-info.sh script and send it to the alsa-mailing list otherwise the ALSA guys won't move.

    Unhappy Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    Sorry asking, I am not a technical expert, but how or where do I get to install the new"snapshot" from? Can I do an apt-get install?

    No. It is all prepared for cases like yours.

    You need to run my script with the "-snap" option.
    It downloads/compiles and installs the latest snapshot.

    But again run a:

    sudo apt-get install patch

    due to whatever reasons first (people are reporting that the utility is missing)
