I did as you suggested and ran the alsa script in the live environment and compared the result with that I get from the installed version. Lots of info there, as you know. No difference jumped out at me, altho I have to be honest and say I did not do an exhaustive line-by-line comparison beyond the first part that same to contain most of the data relating to system hardware and software.
So I have to admit that I am brand new to using Linux, and don't really know what I am doing. My laptop just ran an update this morning and now my internal speakers no longer work. I tried rerunning the scripts that I used to make them work earlier but it is not working. i am only getting the following line:
E: Couldn't find package linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.32-28-generic
here is my information again:
thanks for your time
Same here .. fire up the terminal and run command to remove latest kernel, then go to the Sound preferences and choose appropriate profile:
Next time, before you proceed with update, check via commandline, if the PPA Alsa modules are part of the system:Code:sudo aptitude remove linux-image-2.6.32-28-generic
.. as you can see, there are no modules for the latest kernel:Code:$apt-cache search 2.6.32-27|grep alsa linux-backports-modules-alsa-2.6.32-27-generic - Ubuntu supplied Linux modules for version 2.6.32 ALSA snapshots. linux-backports-modules-alsa-2.6.32-27-preempt - Ubuntu supplied Linux modules for version 2.6.32 ALSA snapshots. linux-backports-modules-alsa-2.6.32-27-server - Ubuntu supplied Linux modules for version 2.6.32 ALSA snapshots. linux-headers-alsa-driver-2.6.32-27-server - Header files related to linux-alsa-driver-modules-lucid version 2.6.32 server linux-headers-alsa-driver-2.6.32-27-generic - Header files related to linux-alsa-driver-modules-lucid version 2.6.32 generic linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.32-27-server - Ubuntu-supplied Linux modules for version 2.6.32-27-server ALSA snapshots linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.32-27-generic - Ubuntu-supplied Linux modules for version 2.6.32-27-generic ALSA snapshots
Code:apt-cache search 2.6.32-28|grep alsa
Waiting for !!
Was released. I just update my system today
After installing Ubunto 10.10 on my laptop, sound was not working properly. Thanks to Ubuntu forums and lidex, I could get it working. I am the OP of this thread.
I recently found out the sound is broken again. It only works on jack, ie, headset. The laptop speakers don't work.
http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=6a...24af54210a7348 has detailed information about the hardware.
At the end of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf I have
options snd-hda-intel model=ideapad
How can I fix it again?
I updated the packages today. After rebooting it worked.
Waiting again for linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.32-29-generic-pae
linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.32-29-generic-pae - Ubuntu-supplied Linux modules for version 2.6.32-29-generic-pae
Ready to update
