    If you followed the thread and if you read the opening post, you
    should know that nobody can support you with this kind of information.

    It is clearly stated several times what information is needed to track down your issue.

    Cheers

    Tks for ppt reply. Well this is the details:
    1. Ubuntu 8.10 (amd64)
    2. 2.6.27-11-generic
    3. alsa-1.0.19 (snap)
    4. AlsaUpgradeRev1.16
    5. Not working microphone (sound is ok). Installed alsa-18/19/19snap... none of them fixes the problem.
    6. Relevant logs attached

    Tried your scripts but still no sound.

    I have Ubuntu 8.10 just installed on a Lenovo T61. No sound whatsoever (tried with headphones and without). Ran the script to upgrade to alsa 1.0.19. Log files attached.

    Very frustrating, as my laptop's sound is known to work, at least for some previous (recent) releases. First Linux install attempt in a few years (other than VMs). Would love to have Vista over Linux but this is obviously a show-stopper.

    Attached log from the upgrade script (which was "successful"), alsa-info, and uxchecker -a output. Hopefully it's meaningful to someone who can help.

    edit: hmm I'm getting errors trying to upload the attachments:

    The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.
    The proxy server could not handle the request POST /newattachment.php.

    Reason: Error reading from remote server



    Well, it was worth a try. Anyone seen this?

    Well, it was worth a try. Anyone seen this?
    As a follow-up to the above (while waiting for the forums to allow me to attach files): after doing the upgrade, when I run vlc to play an mp3 I get errors like the following (similar errors from Firefox when accessing audio content). Does this give any clues?
    Code:
    
    ALSA lib confmisc.c:768:(parse_card) cannot find card '0'
    ALSA lib conf.c:3513:(_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_card_driver returned error: No such file or directory
    ALSA lib confmisc.c:392:(snd_func_concat) error evaluating strings
    ALSA lib conf.c:3513:(_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_concat returned error: No such file or directory
    ALSA lib confmisc.c:1251:(snd_func_refer) error evaluating name
    ALSA lib conf.c:3513:(_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_refer returned error: No such file or directory
    ALSA lib conf.c:3985:(snd_config_expand) Evaluate error: No such file or directory
    ALSA lib pcm.c:2202:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM default

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    Thanks a bunch for this script. I have been searching the internet for the past week for solution to my sound woes in Ubuntu 8.10. Finally your script and alsa upgrade fixed the problem.

    Some further info/clarification, in hopes that someone can help me. When I click the volume control in the system tray I get a popup: "No volume control GStreamer plugins and/or devices not found". When I go to System-Preferences->Sound->Devices I see "HDA Intel AD198x Analog (ALSA)" in the list, but when I click "test" I get a popup: "audiotestsrc wave=since freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink: Could not open audio device for playback"

    I don't know what any of this really means, but perhaps it's different from others' problems in that I'm not just getting silence, I'm actually getting errors".

    TIA for any help.

    Ack! It was working all along... maybe

    So it turns out that my sound worked when logged in as root. Just had to add myself to the "audio" group (why oh why doesn't this happen automagically at install time) and now I have sound from speakers and earphones, and mic works from the jack. Integrated mic on the face of the laptop doesn't seem to work, or at least I can't find the right input to select in "Sound Recorder", but it's not that critical. Volume seems to be kind of low on both but I'll search for a separate fix.

    Anyway, thanks for all your attentions. If anyone is following the thread with the same problem (sound only works as root) you need to edit /etc/group and make sure your username appears on the line starting with "audio:". If not, you can add yourself to the list of users at the end of the line, e.g.
    Code:
    audio:x:29:pulse,noobile
