Specifically, the HDA card is built into an XFX 680i motherboard, if that helps any. I can't get it to output sound to my linux boot. I've seen instructions for installation on the ALSA project: (http://www.alsa-project.org/main/ind...dule-hda-intel) but when I run the ./configure script, a bunch of permission errors come up for creating various files and directories which I can't seem to override by sudoing it. Anyone know what do?
Even though this article is for Debian, if you install all of the files listed under the multimedia section, it will probably work. I also followed the same instructions you referred to, and I seemed to go backwards.
Er... the "Package repository" section doesn't exactly match up well with what I have (presumably since the guide was written for Debian proper and I'm using Ubuntu) and I'm not confident that I'd know what I was doing if I tried to adapt it. Sorry, but any other suggestions?
Oh man. I'm dumb. I hadn't realized that my ALSA drivers are working just fine because I can't get my second monitor to work, and it's the only available speaker. I plugged in headphones to a secondary sound port and they work just fine. Sorry about that.
