    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    I have an Acer Aspire 7720G notebook, with a subwoofer speaker underneath. The subwoofer doesn't play any sound in Ubuntu (lucid nor karmic), and unfortunately the script doesn't fix this problem either.

    It makes things even worse: after installing the upgrade, there isn't any sound in flash movies (like YouTube) in Firefox and Chromium anymore. Thankfully, applying the -r option with the script recovered my previous settings and the sound is back.

    I've been searching for months to fix the subwoofer problem, but I only find other frustrated stories of people who can't get the thing working.

    I found this thread (script) but thought I'd install the latest ALSA with apt first using the following commands:

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/ppa
    sudo apt-get install linux-alsa-driver-modules-"$(uname -r)"
    I confirmed I have the newest version:

    Code:
    tom@heavy:~$ cat /proc/asound/version 
    Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.23.
    Compiled on May 21 2010 for kernel 2.6.32-22-generic (SMP).
    But my card still doesn't work: so I'm wondering does this script install a different version of ALSA than the one I would be getting from that package with apt? (and if applicable, why?)

    anyway maybe those instructions might help someone looking to upgrade as well.. it was found in post 17 here.

    cheers,
    @bigsuccess:
    my UA-1G in "Advanced Mode" works perfect with ALSA 1.0.22.1. Here you can find something how to update:
    http://monespaceperso.org/blog-en/20...ic-koala-9-10/

    (it works fine also with 10.04)

    If you find out how to get it work with 1.0.23 plz let me know!

    Unhappy Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    Is there a problem with the download server.. the script seems to get stuck while downloading the archives. Also it is getting stuck at different archives every time I try it. Any clue of what could be wrong?

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    Hey, this is a really big thread so I could not go through all of it. Apologize if I am just repeating a problem.

    My problem is just that even though my card is working fine, I seem to have lost sound in my earphones. Any suggestions. Thanks for all the trouble!

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    Hi,

    I've been using this script since alsa-1.0.21 successfully in hardy (8.04).

    Now I have a bunch of machines where I want to upgrade the drivers, but I wouldn't like to install all teh compilers and source code in those machines.

    I tried to manually check the log of what "-i" and "-t" do, back up all the files I thought were necessary and run "depmod -a" afterwards, but I didn't succeed.

    Does anyone know how to get a package that I can install manually in identical machines with identical software installed?... a ".tar.gz" to open in "/" plus a bunch of commands (like "depmod" or whatever is necessary) would be fine.

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    This script works great!

    This is my HW:
    - XFX G 210 videocard GM-210X-YAF2 / GM-210X-YAF2 (the cheapest 210 i could find, 36 euros)
    - MSI MSI G31TM-P35 motherboard (again the cheapest gbit/socket 775 i could find, 42 euros)
    - E6600 , 3GHz

    Before i began:
    In the mobo bios i switched off the onboard soundcard.

    I've installed:
    - Ubuntu 10.04 (ssh server)
    - nvidia driver 195.36.31 from nvidia website
    - Alsa 1.0.23 with AlsaUpdate script, worked great!! http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1046137
    - xmbc with this guide more or less (includes steps above, but mind the nvidia part though...) http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title...PAU_repository

    so far....
    aplay -L should give:
    **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
    card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 3: NVIDIA HDMI [NVIDIA HDMI]
    Subdevices: 1/1

    null
    Discard all samples (playback) or generate zero samples (capture)
    hdmi:CARD=NVidia

    HDMI Audio Output

    Changes:
    - start alsamixer and unmute all 4 spdif channels
    - added in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf :
    options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=0

    - in xbmc set sound hw to 'custom' twice and enter twice:
    plughw:0,9
    (or plughw:0,3 for 2ch sound or plughw:0,7 for 5.1 sound)

    hope this can be of help to anyone.
    cheers!

    Re: ALSA Upgrade Script

    setting the volume non-interactively

    If you're tired of using alsamixer to interactively switch the mute off and turn up the volume amixer might help you.

    I usually want to set every volume knob to 90% so I do:

    Code:
    IFS=$,
    for CONTROL in `amixer scontrols | grep ",0$" | cut -d \' -f 2 |sed  -e "s/^/,/" | xargs | sed -e "s/^,//" -e "s/ ,/,/g"` ; do 
      echo ${CONTROL} 
      amixer sset "${CONTROL}" 90% on 
      echo "---------------------------"
    done
    This will work with your first (,0) card.
    It will yeld a few error messages on the capture devices, but that's no problem.



    FWIW, I'm still looking for a way to replicate the installation part in an identical machine without installing all the alsa and kernel sources and libraries, as I posted earlier.
