    Realtek HD Audio Drivers

    I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on an Acer 5739G, I am very new to linux, started using it in college for some basic networking and thought I might as well set it up on this old thing to see if I can learn the ropes.

    Having a lot of difficulty understanding ALSA, I have uninstalled it, reinstalled it, and installed official linux Realtek HD audio drivers, but whilst before it said I had Intel HD Audio, now it does not detect any devices, so I have absolutely no idea where to start and would appreciate any help offered!

    Re: Realtek HD Audio Drivers

    Sounds like a botched driver install. Re-install alsa via this method.
    Using a Terminal="Applications->Accessories->Terminal"
    Code:
    sudo aptitude --purge reinstall linux-sound-base alsa-base alsa-utils linux-image-`uname -r` linux-ubuntu-modules-`uname -r` libasound2
    Reboot.

    For a 'command not found' error simply install aptitude:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install aptitude
    Now use the alsa-info-script to provide detailed information.
    Run this command in a terminal:
    Code:
    wget http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh -O alsa-info.sh && bash alsa-info.sh
    Choose the upload option and provide a link for the output.

    Thanks for the quick reply, sorry I didn't respond sooner I gave up out of frustration and didn't expect such a quick reply.

    The output is; here.

    Cheers.


    EDIT: Alsamixer now working, but still not getting any sound, devices detected are Intel and Nvidia HD Audio, i think i might have done what you instructed in the wrong order so i compiled another report thing, here.

    I'm having the same issue. No matter what I do, the system doesn't see my devices. ALSA and Pulse can see it just fine, but the menu in the system doesn't show anything and there is no sound. I had ALSA dump a report.

    Re: Realtek HD Audio Drivers

    Please mark thread as solved and a note: 10.10 is no longer supported and hasn't been for a year and a half. It gets no security updates and is therefore vulnerable. I would upgrade to a supported release.

    All other posters looking for support: post new threads rather than hijicking this one. OP has SOLVED their problem and yours aren't exactly the same or they would be fixed too. Thanks.
