    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    Soundcheck:
    I ran the latest script to update Alsa on my Voyage setup. It started a full version upgrade. I didn't see anything obvious that would trigger that but it was very unsettling to see so many packages getting downloaded an installed. Even Lilo was getting installed and the system uses grub.
    I had run the 1.0.21-1 version and it was smooth and without drama. The 1.0.21-4 version seems to have triggered this. It also forced me to ad debian-multimedia to my sources for libmpeg4ip-dev. It will take some time for me to see what this did to the system. Any idea what might have triggered all of this?

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    @soundcheck: Thanks for your awesome script. It's really the easiest way that I know of to setup ALSA on Ubuntu. I used it for months.

    But the latest script AlsaUpgrade-1.0.21-4.tar doesn't work with latest updated Ubuntu 8.04.3

    Here are the steps to reproduce

    • Install AlsaUpgrade-1.0.x-rev-1.17.tar. This script works fine.
    • Uptade Ubuntu using the Update Manager. In my case I installed all available updates on October 22, 2009. One update was the Linux kernel. It's maybe related.
    • Restart.
    • Sound is no longer working. Find below screenshots to clarify errors. Those are the errors when I click on the tool bar speaker icon or click on Test sound button under SYSTEM > PREFERENCE SOUNDS.
    • Reinstall ALSA using the latest script AlsaUpgrade-1.0.21-4.tar. No sound. I tried the following commands and restarting each time
      AlsaUpgrade-1.0.21-4.sh -i
      AlsaUpgrade-1.0.21-4.sh -r
      AlsaUpgrade-1.0.21-4.sh -di
    • Restore a fresh ALSA using AlsaUpgrade-1.0.21-4.sh -r
    • Install ALSA using the script AlsaUpgrade-1.0.x-rev-1.17.sh -di
    • Restart
    • Now sound is back.

    Using the following

    1. Ubuntu revision:
      DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
      DISTRIB_RELEASE=8.04
      DISTRIB_CODENAME=hardy
      DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 8.04.3 LTS"
    2. Kernel revision: Linux version 2.6.24-25-generic (buildd@rothera) (gcc version 4.2.4 (Ubuntu 4.2.4-1ubuntu3)) #1 SMP Tue Oct 20 07:31:10 UTC 2009
    3. Alsa revision: Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.20
    4. Upgrade script revision: AlsaUpgrade-1.0.21-4.tar
    5. A bit of background what I've done resp. done before: Find above steps
    6. Attach the relevant logs: Find attached screenshot
    7. Sound card: ASUS Xonar DX

    Let me know if you have any questions or need anything else.

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    I sorted out my problems with the script. There are a series of commands used to ensure the proper software is installed to run the script. In my headless environment most (all) isn't necessary. I commented out all of the downloads and changed the configure command for the driver removing the part explicitly defining the location of the kernel headers. Don't try this unless you understand what each piece does.

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    I upgraded alsa to version 1.0.21 with this script and later decided to remove it by "sudo ./Alsa-blabla -r", it did it's thing but when I do "cat /proc/asound/version" I get this:
    cat /proc/asound/version
    Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.21.
    Compiled on Oct 18 2009 for kernel 2.6.31-9-rt (SMP).
    How can I get the alsa version back to 1.0.20? Thanks.

    edit: I solved it with removing 2.6.31-9-rt and headers and then deleting the remaining modules in /lib/modules/2.6.31-9-rt

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    THANKS! I just installed Linuxant modem drivers in Ubuntu 9.10, which broke my sound. I was able to get my sound back by running your script and reinstalling pulseaudio. As a side note, my modem no longer works though.

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    Hi,

    Please help...

    I'm using 1.0.21-4 script on ubuntu9.10 (I original installed 9.04)
    It seems like the script hangs on. in the log message I got this -

    ./misc/ac97_bus.ko
    chmod: cannot access `/dev/midi': No such file or directory

    How should I continue from here?

    I'm very new with Linux/ubuntu so please make it simple as possible.

    Thanks

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    I used the script and am having a little issue, which is none of my sound cards load automagically. I have run modprobe snd-hda-intel and snd-hda-usb. What could be the reason that they are not autoloading. If i revert back to default they load just fine. Can someone help?

    open /etc/modules and add:
    snd-hda-usb
    snd-hda-intel
