    Temüjin, you've made my day! The flash is now with sound
    My /etc/asound.conf was empty though...

    ...wow I can believe all my sounds are finally working!

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script Redux

    Hi,

    apparently in Natty we still use 1.0.23.

    Cheers,

    Ps. Perhaps you guys have a hint for an issue I'm experiencing here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=10881251

    @Emanuele_Z: Have you actually tried the upgrade script?

    I'd rather not update the default version in 11.04.
    Anyway, managed to fix it with a sort of hack (I don't think modern distros should rely on this).

    Here the answer: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=10882342

    Smile Re: ALSA Upgrade Script Redux

    Hi, I just write to say thank you.

    The script has worked perfectly with Kubuntu Natty 11.04.

    After 2 weeks of intense search trying to find a solution for an HP Pavilion Dv6, this finally solved the problem of detection of two sound cards.

    Btw, works better uninstalling pulseaudio here.

    Thank you very much again.

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script Redux

    Hi there.. I was at Step 6 of the process
    Code:
    sudo ./AlsaUpgrade-1.0.24-2.sh -c
    when it terminated with this error


    Code:
    checking for ALSA... configure: error: Package requirements (alsa >= 1.0.11) were not met:
    
    No package 'alsa' found
    
    Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
    installed software in a non-standard prefix.
    
    Alternatively, you may set the environment variables ALSA_CFLAGS
    and ALSA_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
    See the pkg-config man page for more details.
    
    
    ***************************************************************************
    *  alsa-plugins-1.0.24 configure failed
    ***************************************************************************
    Before this, I followed the advice of another thread and went to the Realtek website and downloaded the drivers to install much like this guy http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1750697.

    Was hoping your script could solve my problem but ran into the error above. Please advise and thanks for your time!

    Upon further research, I was about to solve this through one of the following packages (Im not sure which one did the trick)

    sudo apt-get install alsa-source libasound2-dev lib32asound-dev

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script Redux

    Hi I've run this script with slight modification twice first time default settings this installed everything though the last step may have failed and it did not install the drivers for my on-board sound
    CARDS="all"
    2nd time with the commented line for driver all set to hda-intel and this behaved the same after install
    CARDS="usb-audio,hda-intel,hdsp,hrtimer,rtctimer"
    I'm trying to get the intel corp 5 series/3400 series chipset hi def audio v 6 to work
    I'vetried livecd 10.04 lts and it worked straight away with no config so its not a hardware issue and the sound can work in Linux
    Ive tried tons of fixes by people on random forums to get this working and no luck whatsever so far this script seems the most promising though

    I had to change the ftp addresses because i cant seem to connect to them
    So i added a Mirror variable
    Code:
    PACKAGE=1.0.24
    
    setpack () {
    DRIVER=alsa-driver-1.0.24
    FIRMWARE=alsa-firmware-1.0.24.1
    LIB=alsa-lib-1.0.24.1
    PLUGINS=alsa-plugins-1.0.24
    UTILS=alsa-utils-1.0.24.2
    TOOLS=alsa-tools-1.0.24.1
    OSS=alsa-oss-1.0.17
    }
    MIRROR="http://alsa.cybermirror.org"
    and changed the download code to the following
    Code:
    header "Downloading and extracting ALSA packages..."
    wget $MIRROR/driver/$DRIVER.tar.bz2 && tar -xjf $DRIVER.tar.bz2 
    wget $MIRROR/firmware/$FIRMWARE.tar.bz2 && tar -xjf $FIRMWARE.tar.bz2 
    wget $MIRROR/lib/$LIB.tar.bz2 && tar -xjf $LIB.tar.bz2 
    wget $MIRROR/plugins/$PLUGINS.tar.bz2 && tar -xvf $PLUGINS.tar.bz2 
    wget $MIRROR/utils/$UTILS.tar.bz2 && tar -xjf $UTILS.tar.bz2 
    wget $MIRROR/tools/$TOOLS.tar.bz2 && tar -xjf $TOOLS.tar.bz2 
    wget $MIRROR/oss-lib/$OSS.tar.bz2 && tar -xvf $OSS.tar.bz2
    This connects fine to one of the http mirrors listed on the alsa site I checked the versions match and it downloads fine for me

    These are my versions of debugging info i see other ppl have posted in this thread hopefully someone will be able to spot the issue

    I've attached the output from the script the only errors i noticed are at the final install step last 4 lines
    Its not actually a zip file its text renamed to .zip

    The script ran successfully. Don't worry about the last 4 lines (they pertain to legacy OSS support, which Ubuntu disables in their kernels). Run the alsa-info script or look at dmesg to see why the module isn't loading.

    Sorry i should have mentioned im not fantastic with linux i can run commands follow examples change code around but i dont know alot of the background linux knowledge stuff
    The info script was contained in the last post what is the command to view dmesg issues?
    But i reran it as i changed one line in the config that was repeating a command that i added awhile ago, hda auto probe thing
    This is the most current alsa info script
    Your ALSA information is located at
    http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=0d...51939b81ed7d40

    Im not really sure whats wrong other than its using the sound on my graphics card rather than onboard
