Just got home from work.... while the commands for updating from that page I linked did not all work out 100% I now have sound... at least on my first startup.
It did not manage to compile and update the alsa-utils. The output of
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.23.
Compiled on Jun 8 2010 for kernel 2.6.32-22-generic (SMP)
However the alsa.info script output states:
For some reason it won't compile the .23 alsa-util
Driver version: 1.0.23
Library version: 1.0.23
Utilities version: 1.0.22
I'll try rebooting now to see whether sound stays on.
Sound stayed on upon reboot. Is it advisable to somehow workaround the alsa-utils to 1.0.23? Or does it really matter?
