    Re: ATTENTION HP dvX laptop owners with speaker sound issues ...

    As in above your solution got me working, on my DV6-1125ee but i logged in KDE rather than gnome and there was no sound. I rebooted and still no sound. I redid the installation of the modules and rebooted and still no sound.

    This is really frustrating to get sound only once. Can you think of why this happended?

    Ok now fixed and stable across at least one reboot by doing above BUT


    changing to
    options snd-hda-intel model=hp-m4 enable_msi=1

    Take care to set volume of speaker in alsa-mixer.

    Re: ATTENTION HP dvX laptop owners with speaker sound issues ...

    Thank you so much for posting this. Really excited to be able to find a way to have sound on my laptop.

    Having a slight issue though. Trying to use the newest alsa drivers, downloaded from the main alsa page. When I gzip the file, it says:
    mrtheplague@Portable-Plague:~/src/alsa$ tar -xvpf alsa-driver-1.0.20.tar.bz2.gz
    tar: This does not look like a tar archive
    tar: Skipping to next header
    tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors


    Code:
    ~/src/alsa$ tar -xvpf alsa-driver-1.0.20.tar.bz2.gz
    tar: This does not look like a tar archive
    tar: Skipping to next header
    tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
    Am I missing a step? Doing something incorrectly? I am rather new to everything and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. Thanks.

    Re: ATTENTION HP dvX laptop owners with speaker sound issues ...

    So I am a dork and figured out how to properly unzip the file. Continuing through the install process I still run into:

    Code:
    ~/src/alsa/alsa-driver-1.0.20$ make
    make dep
    make[1]: Entering directory `/home/mrtheplague/src/alsa/alsa-driver-1.0.20'
    make[2]: Entering directory `/home/mrtheplague/src/alsa/alsa-driver-1.0.20/acore'
    copying file alsa-kernel/core/info.c
    /home/mrtheplague/src/alsa/alsa-driver-1.0.20/utils/patch-alsa: 24: patch: not found
    make[2]: *** [info.c] Error 1
    make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/mrtheplague/src/alsa/alsa-driver-1.0.20/acore'
    make[1]: *** [dep] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/mrtheplague/src/alsa/alsa-driver-1.0.20'
    make: *** [include/sndversions.h] Error 2
    mrtheplague@Portable-Plague:~/src/alsa/alsa-driver-1.0.20$
    Any reason for the error codes?

    Thanks again.

    Re: ATTENTION HP dvX laptop owners with speaker sound issues ...

    Why not try just adding a proper line to .conf-file?

    My sound came alive just by adding lines, no alsa updates etc

    Re: ATTENTION HP dvX laptop owners with speaker sound issues ...

    That would have been a far simpler solution. Tried appending that and still received no sound. Realized my sound card is no longer being recognized:

    Code:
    mrtheplague@Portable-Plague:~$ aplay -l
    aplay: device_list:217: no soundcards found...
    Then I followed the help documentation to reinstall the modules and ran this command:

    Code:
    sudo aptitude install linux-ubuntu-modules-`uname -r` linux-generic
    It found nothing:

    Code:

    EDIT: Need to not do this while tired apparently. Missed the whole uname = username part. Even adjusting that, it still does not find any modules.

    MRPAPERSHEAD:

    One of the things you run into when compiling software is whether or not you have all the components of a build environment. Those are the compilers and ancillary applications, like patch. I read your error to say that the application 'patch' cannot be found. I believe that there is an earlier post where someone describes what he had to do to compile the alsa drivers (which includes needed applications). Alternatively, you can use a package manager that organizes packages by type and do an install (or reinstall) of a development environment.

    Regards.

    Hello everyone. Long time stalker, first time poster.

    Firstly, big thanks to jstalnak for putting in the initial footwork on this issue. Following his instructions, I ran into the same errors outlined earlier by Binary Bandit, and since he never actually describes what the "patch" is or where to find it, I did a little searching on my own and ended up with the following solution:


    • Open the terminal and run the following command (this will fix the "patch" issue described by Binary Bandit):

    Code:
    #> sudo apt-get install build-essential
    • Locate the latest alsa snapshot HERE (file should end with *.tar.gz);
    • Download the archive;
      • Right-click the archive and select "Extract Here" (this will create a folder named "alsa-driver" or "alsa-driver-unstable" depending on the version you downloaded)...
      • Right-click this folder and select "Open in Terminal" (if you don't see this option, install "nautilus-open-terminal" from the Synaptic Package Manager)...

    • In the terminal, simply follow the commands outlined by jstalnak (replacing "vim" with "gedit" as highlighted):

    Code:
    #> ./configure --enable-dynamic-minors
    #> make
    #> sudo make install-modules
    #> sudo vim /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base
    [add 'options snd_hda_intel model=hp-dv5' sans quotes to the bottom of the file, even if you have a dv4, etc.]
    #> sudo reboot
    Sound is now working 100% on my dv5-1235dx using the 17-May-2009 unstable snapshot, internal mic included. I tried dep01's solution, but had to crank the volume to hear anything, and was still missing system sounds. I appreciate his help, but this didn't seem to actually fix the problem, and it only takes a couple minutes longer to perform a proper driver install.

    Thanks again everyone. Hope this helps...
