    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    Thanks for the mirrors fasteddy86, I've been intalled jaunty amd64 in a Aspire one 5930, before I had intrepid i386 on the same system, I made a clean install to use ext4 instead ext3. Works fine, let's see how my headphones work.

    Mic and Line in now working on my Lenovo Ideapad s10

    Upgrading to Jaunty made ALSA screw up on my s10. The only capture or recording device listed was "Digital" and though the front mic would play in the speaker, it would not work as a capture device for things like audacity and Jack.

    After running the script on my s10, I didn't see any immediate changes. I searched the modules list but the s10 wasn't listed. I did find the right type of module by running in terminal:

    cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#0 | grep Coded

    which returned

    Codec: Realtek ALC269

    Since Ideapad isn't a device listed specifically in the HD-Audio_Models.txt, I had to guess which one would work best. This was the ultimate solution: I added the line in alsa-base.conf:

    options snd-hda-intel model=basic

    After a reboot, I finally have all the options and switches I need in ALSA! Mic and Line in work as capture inputs now! Hope this helps all you s10 users!

    Smile Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    Note, the script does not work in case you have linux backports modules installed ( in my case I need it for the integrated network chip). The problem is that with backports installed, the kernel loads the driver from /lib/modules/<kernel modules number>/updates/alsa instead of the usual spot. So you need to copy the alsa-drivers there ( meaning the content of
    /lib/modules/<kernel modules number>/kernel/sound) or sudo aptitude remove linux-backports-modules-<Ubunutu Distro>

    Hi,

    the script fails compiling on my computer:

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    The script installed perfectly on my 9.04 Laptop system. I can only hear a faint sound through headphones, though. (which is better then the zero sound I had)

    Intel HDA. I tried to edit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base with different options, but it's still a really tiny noise. Any suggestions?

    Maybe type "alsamixer -c0" into the Terminal, and check the volume levels of everything?

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    Hi there,

    thanks for the good script. Saves quite a bit of work for the compilation.

    Anyway, I have got the problem that my sound works alright when I plug in my headphone, but not through the Notebook speaker. I attached the output from uxchecker-1.05.sh. Any hint would be appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Marcus

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    There are debs for alsa1.0.19 and pulseaudio 0.9.15 for Hardy, Intrepid and Jaunty here which may be an easier way to get them since you can just add the ppa to your repo list and get them with apt or Synaptic

    https://launchpad.net/~themuso/+archive/ppa
    PMs will be ignored.

    Everything appears to be turned up to the maximum, and nothing appears to be muted.

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    markubuntu,

    I'm using jaunty 32 bit. I installed the packages for alsa1.0.19 and pulseaudio 0.9.15: by going to https://launchpad.net/~themuso/+archive/ppa, adding the sources, storing the gpg key & using Update Manager. Interestingly, alsa-base (on Synaptic) still shows 1.0.18 whereas lib-asound2 shows 1.0.19: looking at the ppa this is expected since the package list doesn't show alsa-base. Is there another ppa with alsa-base 1.0.19?

    I've also used your recomendation of downloading a bunch of packages (e.g. pdadevchooser) and then configuring sound using pdadevchooser app & System Preferences Sound & Gnome Volume Control.

    PS I've also added the following lines to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf:
    options snd slots=snd-hda-intel
    options snd-hda-intel model=dell-xxxx
    alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
    (where xxxx=m26 for Dell Inspiron 1501 Laptop
    and xxxx=3stack for Dell Inspiron E520 Desktop)
    This comes from a launchpad bug.

    At the end of all this, Sound Recorder & Skype work OK on my desktop but do not work (specifically recording/capturing) on my laptop!
    Regards,
    John
