    Hi folks.


    REMINDER:

    Please supply the alsa-info.sh output if you want to get your issue resolved by ALSA. Otherwise it is impossible to get your issue tracked down from remote.

    I won't forward any issues any longer to ALSA if you don't supply that
    information.

    You can PM me with related information. This way I can put you also on the distribution list of that particular trouble ticket.

    THX

    Try following model-ids:

    Cheers
    Thanks, I did try those models (and many more ) but no success. Not that I understand anything, but how can it not be an ALSA issue if sound works fine on mac os X and in Linux only the headphones work?

    [FIXED] Headphones sound issue.

    So after running the alsa-info.sh script, i discovered that my computer was loading option snd-hda-intel model=z71v although I added the line
    snd-hda-intel model=hp.

    So I did a grep, and discovered that somehow in the alias file under modprobe.d there is this line

    snd-hda-intel model=z71v, so I deleted that line, and did

    sudo /etc/init.d/alsasound restart

    and voila! headphones/sound/speaker/mic everything magically started working!!!

    Thanks soundcheck!

    That's a good question first of all.

    One possible reason:

    You need to consider that Apple, just have to adapt OSX to their own HW-platform respectively BIOS only. What makes live obviously much easier
    for them.
    Nobody knows if there are following all the standards. They also might add workarounds to get things going.
    Takashi Iwai ( one of the leading designers at ALSA) is telling me that very often non standard BIOS implementations causing quite some trouble.

    However. Send me the alsa-info.sh (again?) and I'll hand it over.

    BTW: I agreed with Takashi to let you guys try the latest driver tar-ball as described over here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...9&postcount=65
    to make sure that we're not chasing ghosts.

    I will add an option to the upgrade-script during this week , which will let you folks download and install the latest snapshot automatically.
    The above link will always refer to the latest snapshot in the future.

    Cheers

    Great to hear that you tracked it down by yourself. Would be interesting to know how the entry got there!
    All ALSA related stuff should be located in alsa-base.

    Re: Alsa 1.0.18 Installation Script

    I had problem with sound on my new Acer Aspire 8920. Following script method from this page I lost master button on panel. But fortunately there was simple way to get all working and I found it on launchpad written by guy called Jojo and now everything work like it should.

    This is what I have done:

    Install fresh Ubuntu 8.10
    Update system and reboot
    Install proprietary graphics driver for NVIDIA cards (177) and reboot
    Open terminal and type:

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base
    Add this to the end:

    Code:
    # added by myself
    alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
    options snd-hda-intel model=auto
    Reboot and it works perfectly on 5.1 integrated speakers and on headphones too.

    Bye Bye Vista...

    Re: Alsa 1.0.18 Installation Script

    Folks.

    I today uploaded revision 1.14 of the script.

    Changes:

    1. It now allows you to install the latest driver-snapshot supplied
    by ALSA. This way you potentially get the chance to get things even
    earlier going. But please consider that this a snapshot from a
    designers-source-tree. Don't expect that everything is fully integrated
    and tested.
    This function is very useful for trouble-shooting purposes to avoid
    reporting already fixed faults.
    I still need to checkout if there is a changelog available.

    2. I introduced a little help-function


    Let me know, if you experience problems.


    Cheers

    Re: Alsa 1.0.18 Installation Script

    hi pretty much sorted here with the help of this thread but there is a niggle

    if I setup the mixer with the settings I want (internal mic for one)
    I can store the settings with
    alsactl store

    however after rebooting the settings are back to the original defaults external mic master vol 81%

    with

    sudo alsactl restore

    The settings are restored

    however I am too ignorant to be able to get the settings to be restored automatically after a reboot can you suggest a solution please.

    Re: Alsa 1.0.18 Installation Script

    @soundcheck first of all thanks very much for this script. Its awesome how it works. If I can propose an enhancement could be a cleanup option, to uninstall all the *-dev packages.

    I'm using Ubuntu on my eeePC 1000h ALC269 since Hardy + Alsa 1.0.16. When I installed Intrepid (Alsa 1.0.17) I noticed a brutal regression on the gnome-volume-control:



    As you can see, even on Alsa 10.0.18a volume controls are far inferior from Hardy's default. Sound quality is good thought. The mic on Alsa 10.0.17 sound horrible, but that got fixed on 10.0.18a. Still I'm wondering whats going on: I want to know if this is a gnome problem, an Alsa problem or Ubuntu one.

    Should I post a Launchpad bug report or you can elevate this to Alsa people?

    Thanks again and keep the good work!

    BTW: I have an alsa-info.txt I get using Alsa 10.0.17 and 2.6.27-8-eeepc kernel (I reverted back from 10.0.18a for now, but I can reinstall if you need info).

    Talking Re: Alsa 1.0.18 Installation Script

    Thankyou soundcheck

    Thanks to your script (and my lazyness to compile alsa manually - as I had done so a few years ago), it was easy to get the latest alsa compiled and installed.

    So my Intel ICH7 with ALC269 codec's microphone works nicely on my eee PC S101.

    Thanks again soundcheck
    Work smart, not hard.
