I just upgraded to Karmic and now my sound is gone. I have been doing a little reading so far, and The only thing I've tried is resetting alsa with
sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils reset
and i get
* Resetting ALSA...
Amixer: Invalid Command!
I'm a little tired and I Haven't played with Kubuntu for a few months so sorry if I haven't searched enough, I'll continue searching, just figured I'd throw a line out and see what I catch. Thanks
*edit: Headphones do work.
* Reading Though Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide v0.5e at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=205449
First two steps success, 3rd step I don't understand where I'm supposed to search for my chipset... and 4th step gets this
FATAL: Module snd- not found.
Guess I'm gonna try Getting the ALSA drivers from a *fresh* kernel now...
* Ok, Criticize me all you want, but that solved my problem. Sorry for a useless post, unless this will help anyone else. Guess I just needed a place to keep track of my progress.
