    Yeah. This is a typical problem. I am mentioning it in the first post. That's why I added the document with the different model IDs.

    It is always a good idea to feed these kind of findings back to the ALSA guys. Run the alsa-info.sh and explain your findings to the alsa mailing list.


    Cheers

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    Hey All,

    It seems the Alsa FTP site is down since last night at around 11pm. I have a local downloaded copy of 1.0.19 and all the sub dirs, that I copied over to my server from the usr/src folder following a previous 1.16 script upgrade.

    When I copy it back to the machine I want to install alsa on using the script -i I get a quick line 218 ./configure permission denied and am running the script with sudo.

    I have tried to chown the Alsa-1.0.19 dir once on the proper machine but it sets the whole directory to root owner and grp.

    Is there a way to set the permission on this folder at the top level so at Alsa-1.0.19.

    Thanks,

    Dave

    can you share the driver files? I'm trying to do the upgrade now and the ftp site is still down.

    Thanks. Was going mad waiting for it to come up again.

    Managed to get the script running with the -di parameter, by opening it in gedit and using find/replace to replace all occurrences of ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/ with a mirror.

    Full mirror list:
    US mirrors:
    ===========
    ftp.silug.org:/pub/alsa
    ftp.eecs.umich.edu:/pub/linux/alsa
    ftp.rfc822.org:/pub/mirror/ftp.alsa-project.org/pub

    Europe mirrors:
    ===============
    linux.a2000.nl:/alsa
    ftp.sunet.se:/pub/Linux/alsa
    ftp.task.gda.pl:/pub/linux/misc/alsa
    sunsite.uio.no:/pub/linux/sound/alsa
    gd.tuwien.ac.at:/opsys/linux/alsa

    Asia mirrors:
    =============
    linux.sarang.net:/mirror/driver/sound/alsa

    Australia mirrors:
    ==================
    ftp.suburbia.com.au:/pub/alsa
    mirror.aarnet.edu.au:/pub/alsa

    Japan mirrors:

    ftp.nagoyalinux.org:/mirror/alsa

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    Can I run this script to *install* ALSA instead of installing 1.0.17 and then upgrading ( and having aptitude think 1.0.17 is installed ) to 1.0.19 using this script?

    I guess to -r option completely "removes" the update ( for when Ubuntu actually catches up with 1.0.19 which I need for my HDMI audio and headphones to work ). Am I correct in thinking this?

    Thanks for a great script It is an excellent piece of work!

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    The alsa-project ftp site is still down at the time of this post. I modified the rev-1.16 shell script to prompt the user for an alternate ftp repo when the -d or -di option is used. The hacked script, designated as rev-1.16-1, is attached. Perhaps soundcheck will consider incorporating this feature into his next revision.

    could you explain how you get vdr-sxfe working with hdmi audio?

    aplay -Dplughw:1,3 <file>.wav

    will play the sound on my Tv (connected through a hdmi cable), but

    vdr-sxfe --audio=alsa:1:3

    won't play any sound. From the output I get on terminal it uses the appropriate device (1:3) but that's it, no sound at all, no error messages!

    I recompiled xineliboutput cvs version 1.04 to make sure it detects the new alsa library (1.0.19) - didn't help.

    OS is Kubuntu Intrepid, same kernel you use - notification sounds via HDMI are working as well after I changed the device to 1:3 in sound manager. It's just the vdr-sxfe ...

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    Good day, I'm a user of laptop Acer Aspire 6920g... I installed latest Ubuntu 8.10 (amd64) and everything was working like a charm except the sound.

    I upgraded the ALSA to the latest version (19) and the sound is working very good at the moment. But my internal microphone is dead.

    I think I tried everything. I'm feel very sad What can you suggest?
