I seem to be kind of rusty with Linux as I have not used it in a while. I installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my desktop. I have sound but it is a bit muggy and only outputs as analog stereo. I have ran into a bit of a problem trying to install the Realtek HD audio codec for my on-board sound. It seems that alsaconf is required to run the installation setup for the audio codec, but is no longer packaged in the alsa-utils package with current releases of Ubuntu. How would I go about building the alsa package so that I can use aslaconf and install the audio codec?
