The sound on my VAIO SZ lappy doesn't work. I found that on Sony VAIO laptops, the sound doesn't work unless you install the patch found at https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu...ver/+bug/33719
So I did this:
$ tar -jxvf ./alsa-driver-1.0.12.tar.bz2
$ cd ./alsa-driver-1.0.12
Now, it should work, because the forum in the link above talks about 1.0.11rc3, but I'll tell you right now that make gives me an error:
make: *** [io.o] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/home/nick/alsa-driver-1.0.12/pci/emu10k1'
make: *** [_modsubdir_emu10k1] Error 2
make: Leaving directory `/home/nick/alsa-driver-1.0.12/pci'
make: *** [compile] Error 1
So I apply the patch.
$ patch -p0 < ~/vaio-stac7661-test3.diff
patching file alsa-kernel/pci/hda/patch_sigmatel.c
Hunk #1 succeeded at 1726 with fuzz 1 (offset 578 lines).
Hunk #2 FAILED at 1904.
1 out of 2 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file alsa-kernel/pci/hda/patch_sigmatel.c.rej
So yeah. What should I do?
