View Full Version : [ubuntu] Another sound issue: modules loaded, levels maxed, everything silent

First of all thanks for 8.04 to all community...

Macbook is the latest early 2008 model.

Problems are with fresh install of 8.04. Followed steps described here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBook#head-d374bb9e1b7183c133759a8c6877a34c50c4ba7d

Volume levels are all maxed with alsamixer, in Sound Preferences all options are set for ALSA and device is HDA Intel. According to that link, I think I've installed 1.0.16 version of alsa.

I've tweaked /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base also and added these lines:

install snd-hda-intel position_fix=1 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-hda-intel $CMDLINE_OPTS && /lib/alsa/modprobe-post-install snd-hda-intel

options snd-hda-intel model=auto

So there is no sound coming from inbuilt speakers nor headphones. Please ask further questions, I'll happily answer.

You may add information here, but it's not a topic anymore right now, since this girl uninstalled Ubuntu. Sad it may be...
