View Full Version : [ubuntu] No audio devices after upgrade

November 8th, 2009, 02:16 PM
Hi all,

I seem to be missing my audio devices in System->Preferences->Sound under the hardware tab. Nothing shows up, and I have no audio. Please help :)

*Just upgraded to 9.10*

aplay -l

lspci -v

00:10.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP51 High Definition Audio (rev a2)
Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 818f

I don't know if I should use pulse or alsa at the moment. Both are installed, but neither are working. I'd like to get simultaneous output working on a 5,1 system, preferably with flash/firefox as well. I always struggled with that.



Here's a link to the state of my very confused system: http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=548c69ec2a1d358cd8b2ffef2d456a6b1f79b488
