    That is a bug with the audio driver. I have a bug submitted here:
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/alsa-driver/+bug/271560
    But I'm not sure if it will get any attention.

    same situation you described in the bug, but different device:
    Code:
    $ aplay -l

      Subdevices: 1/1
      Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
    Code:
    $ cat /proc/asound/cards

    Re: HOWTO: Install Hardy (8.04.1) on HP tx2500

    Hello - I am using a tx2510us running Hardy.

    After I upgraded my kernel to 2.6.26.5-ultimate in order to get CPU scaling and ACPI to work my sound died...

    If I click on the volume control icon in the upper right I get the following error: "No volume control GStreamer plugins and/or devices found."

    Here is /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base:
    Code:
    # autoloader aliases
    install sound-slot-0 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-0
    install sound-slot-1 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-1
    install sound-slot-2 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-2
    install sound-slot-3 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-3

    In addition I can no longer edit touchpad settings as the system treats my touchpad as a mouse.

    It would also be great if someone could figure out how to enable screen rotation.

    Here is my xorg.conf:

    If I could just figure out the sound, touchpad, and rotation issues I would never have to boot into Vista again.

    Thanks for your time.

    Re: HOWTO: Install Hardy (8.04.1) on HP tx2500

    sound (no mic), cpu scaling and touchscreen/touchpad work with 2.6.24-21-generic...

    so far no luck with rotation (i guess it has to do with fglrx ), microphone, two buttons on the bottom of the screen and suspend...

    The new kernel allows the use of ACPI functionality and suspend. If only sound, rotation, and the touchpad worked well with it.

    Oh god finally. Will try.

    EDIT: Doesn't work if I don't disable ACPI, with 2.6.24-21 Generic. Why?
    Blacklisting thermal doesn't seem to do anything either.

    mic has improved...
    not sure what i changed... could be this:
    Code:
    $ cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound 
    alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
    alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
    or the latest catalist 8-9 which fix an audio bug for the hd3200

    anyhow it was a good surprise...

    Re: HOWTO: Install Hardy (8.04.1) on HP tx2500

    marranzano how did you edit the /etc/modprobe.d/sound

    i tryed the command you posted: $ cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound

    but it says:
    cat: /etc/modprobe.d/sound: No such file or directory
    so how will i edit it then?


    by the way i have ubuntu 8.10 alpha5 and it works wonderfull with the new kernel 2.6.27-3 no more acpi=off and wlan working ootb everything exept hibernation or the touchscreen/digitizer i dont know how to make it work, Maybe there should be a forum about the tx2000 series in ubuntu 8.10?
