    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    Hello,

    I have a laptop Packard Bell Easynote ML65 series, with a Realtek ALC272 codec, running Intrepid.
    Sound problem was:
    headphones: OK
    laptop-speakers: no sound at all
    End 2008 I ran AlsaUpgrade-1.0.x-rev-1.15.sh, wich did not solve my problem.
    Ref: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...ALC272&page=14 look at #133

    BUT:

    Yesterday I did run AlsaUpgrade-1.0.x-rev-1.16.sh, and:
    Sound: headphones: OK
    laptop-speakers: wonderfull sound
    Headphone-switch does mute the speakers.

    Here is how I did it:
    Download en extract the upgrade script.
    Run:
    $ sudo ./AlsaUpgrade-1.0.x-rev-1.16.sh -d
    then:
    $ sudo ./AlsaUpgrade-1.0.x-rev-1.16.sh -snap
    Reboot

    System -> Preferences -> Sound
    Set "Default mixer tracks" to Device: "HDA Intel (Alsa Mixer)"
    Set the other controls to "ALSA - Advanced Linux Sound Architecture"

    Double click the speaker icon on the top panel.
    Make shure the device is "HDA Intel (Alsa Mixer)"
    Set Master, PCM and Front on Max. volume
    Select Switches: Headphone: On
    Enjoy.

    Soundcheck, thank you for your script, you made my life more "soundfull".
    If one day you should come to Antwerp I buy you a couple of the best Belgian beers.

    Thanks.

    Only disconcerting thing is the lack of output from the script. Those of us curious about what it is doing would love a --verbose switch so that each step is output to console.
    It writes a log to /var/log/Alsa..something.log

    I tried it, but the compile failed for 1.0.19.
    Ubuntu 8.04.2
    2.6.27.3

    Still looking at the errors. Seeing if I lack a dependency or something.

    Thanks soundcheck.
    Finally got my Dell T3400 with HDA sound card running.
    At work our firewall blocks outbound ftp so I had to edit your script "AlsaUpgrade-1.0.x-rev-1.16.sh" to check the wget lines to use an http mirror instead of the ftp servers "FTP via HTTP (web) access". All good now.

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    I ran the upgrade script on an Ubuntu 7.10 installation and everything upgrades except the driver. It remains at the previous version. I have tried many tricks and none seem to work. Something has control of the driver and won't let it get upgraded.

    How can I troubleshoot this and finish the upgrade? The system works but I'm trying to get Xine to play the full 24 bit depth of the audio files I'm working with. I can get 24 bits from aplay just fine.

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    Soundcheck, you are my hero.

    Tried everything to fix sound on a SigmaTel 9228 on a Dell XPS m1730 on a nearly-new Intrepid installation. I had installed Amarok 2.0, and it had done something with phonon that ruined my sound. Once I got the sound back, even though all channels were maxed, sound was only about 50% of what it had been before. I tried everything I could think of, even recompiling and installing Alsa manually, but I guess your script does something that I don't, and it fixed everything like magic.

    Thanks a million! Rock on.

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    Many thanks, soundcheck!

    I now have fully working sound on my Samsung NC10 (running Hardy) - including a working internal microphone. I warmly recommend your excellent script to anyone using Ubuntu on a Samsung NC10.

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    I ran the script and in some problems that I had before were solved, but I don't know why my login ubuntu music, which is the default one, is somewhat choppy and sounds strange. Does anyone experience that and if so can you help me fix it. I went in System > Preferences > Sound and my config is as follows:

    Sounds Events
    Sound Playback: ALSA - Advanced Linux Sound Architecture
    Music and Movies
    Sound Playback: ALSA - Advanced Linux Sound Architecture
    Audio Conferencing
    Sound Playback: ALSA - Advanced Linux Sound Architecture
    Sound Capture: ALSA - Advanced Linux Sound Architecture
    Default Mixer Tracks
    Device: HDA ATI SB (Alsa Mixer)

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    I think I have found a regression either in the script or alsa 1.0.19

    my geforce 8300 (same as 8200) chipset did not go to spdif anymore when I had to use the script after an update, I changed from 1.0.18 to 1.0.19 during this

    it took some time to figure out but I needed to add
    options snd-hda-intel model=6stack-dig to:
    /etc/modprobe.d/sound
    found it here link

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    Sorry for complaining one more time, but problems persist. I managed to get the login music to be played properly, by adjusting the sound options:

    Sounds Events
    Sound Playback: PulseAudio Sound Server
    Music and Movies
    Sound Playback: PulseAudio Sound Server
    Audio Conferencing
    Sound Playback: PulseAudio Sound Server
    Sound Capture: PulseAudio Sound Server
    Default Mixer Tracks
    Device: HDA ATI SB (Alsa Mixer)

    But now as before mplayer and skype are not working properly. Mplayer keeps complaining with this strange message I get when trying to increase or decrease the volume:

    [AO_ALSA] Unable to find simple control 'PCM',0.

    My mplayer, default audio output is alsa since

    Code:
    mplayer -ao help
    gives me the options:

    Code:
    MPlayer SVN-r28532-4.3.2 (C) 2000-2009 MPlayer Team
    Available audio output drivers:
    	oss	OSS/ioctl audio output
    	alsa	ALSA-0.9.x-1.x audio output
    	arts	aRts audio output
    	esd	EsounD audio output
    	nas	NAS audio output
    	sdl	SDLlib audio output
    	openal	OpenAL audio output
    	mpegpes	DVB audio output
    	v4l2	V4L2 MPEG Audio Decoder output
    	null	Null audio output
    	pcm	RAW PCM/WAVE file writer audio output
    From which the only one that really plays any sound is alsa.

    The skype problem is that neither people can here me talking nor I can here them. When using the settings from the previous post skype and mplayer were working, but the login music was choppy (I believe that its a gstreamer problem but don't know how to fix it). So, ideas anyone?

    Seems to be a specific problem to your setup. I'd say that if ALSA is the only working output, the upgrade seems to have succeeded.

    Checkout the ~/.mplayer/config file and documentation ( I don't use mplayer)

    there you can set or unset your outputdevices

    ao=alsa:device=whatever

    if you're looking for surround you need to setup your .asoundrc properly

    Try to avoid pulseaudio. It might cause problems. I havn't really checked
    if pulseaudio is working properly after the upgrade. Perhaps somebody else can confirm that it is working.

    Let me know if you figure out if there is a problem with the script or the
    upgrade.

    Good luck
