View Full Version : [mythbuntu] How Do I Keep My ALSA Drivers Working?

January 10th, 2010, 04:01 AM
Running songbird, have been just fine for months, now every time I try to play a file I get "autoaudiosink and alsasink are missing." I can cure this by following the "Getting the ALSA drivers from a *fresh* kernel" instructions in the comprehensive sound solutions guide. But I have to do this *every time* I restart my computer. How can I fix this permanently?

You can try this alsa update procedure:

January 10th, 2010, 06:21 PM
on sudo ./AlsaUpgrade- -c
I get "Make failed."

Mythbuntu (xfce) install
Ubunti 8.04 lts
upgrading from ALSA 1.0.16

What is your output of this command:

uname -a

You were able to get through step 4, I take it?
