Display and Sound driver in HP DV2000 Notebook


Dear All,
I am using HP DV2000 NoteBook.
here is the info from hp
I installed FC5 with kernel 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.
I have you 2 question.
1)I cannot find the sound card driver. Can you tell me which driver I can use and download.
2)I download a Linux IA32 display diver at here and following the step in this site.
After that I cannot not go to Xwinodws. After change backup the setting at /etc/X11/xorg.conf. I can go to Xwindwos using old driver, but the gnome die, it lose the bra(which is the "X" icon for close windows) to close any widows. My display is NVIDIA GeForce Go 7200 Driver. Running at 1280*800 display.

1. Have you tried running alsaconf as root yet?
2. Best place to look is /var/log/Xorg.0.log, any lines with (EE) next to them are fatal errors, look for (WW) too (warnings)

G'day Sundru,

I have a Pavillion laptop dv2000. The sound works but not the speaker jack nor the head phone sockets. I don;t know about the mike socket yet. Does your installation fix the problem with headphone, speaker and mic sockets?

Regards
John

Hi, this is the wrong thread to post this question really....
First you need to find out which wi-fi card you have, I have an atheros card and use the "madwifi" driver, do a google search including the name of your card and the words "linux driver" and see how you go :~]

hi there, i had the same problem with the wireless, i installed kubuntu, and the wireless assistant doesn't worked, so i install ndiswrapper and the inf drivers, take a look at ndiswrapper wiki. then configure your wireless with iwconfig. Now i'm return to gnome and i haven't problems, i installed wifi-radar and everything its cool. I hope it help you, check the wiki and it should work

P.S. I cant make my headphone work, any suggestion ?
c ya.

I have a dv2000t with a C2D processor running in 64 bit with Gentoo. I have a site dedicated to this, and I have also filled out an entry in the HCL for this laptop.

My site is in my profile.

And the sound driver is snd_hda_intel. I use the newest drivers in portage for alsa. I haven't tried the headphone jacks, but my speakers work, and the mic works (sorta). I always get too much feedback when using it, and am looking into making it work right now.

I keep my site updated more than I check here so you can always check it for this laptop.

I would like to try that kernel you have on your site, since my laptop is virtually identical. Do I just download it and add it to grub?

Gruven and others,

Here is a site that I went to with the best sound driver I have come across yet. It fixes most of the problems. Still not perfect but i can live with it.

http://www.pixelmonkey.org/2007/03/1...-alsa-patches/

(off topic: I have a good onw for getting the webcam to work as well. Try this link:

I hope this is of use to someone.

Cheers
John

You could do that, but the modules won't be installed. I would just go to kernel.org and download the kernel sources, then go to my site and download the kernel config. Then, put it in your kernel source directory and rename it to .config, run "make oldconfig" and answer some question, then build the kernel. That will be essentially the same thing, but you built it manually, and have all of the modules available also. I should have added the modules to download, but I just haven't yet. I do plan on updating the site to the 2.6.21 kernel series, and adding the modules for my laptop also.

I am running 64 bit gentoo btw. The kernel config should work for a 32 bit system, but you may possibly have to go and make some changes. Either way, the drivers will still be marked to build as modules, and you don't have to do much of the config yourself.

alsa-driver-1.0.14rc4 rocks

Just a note to say that I have installed alsa-driver-1.0.14rc4 and it is getting closer to fixing the problem. A big thank you to the ALSA developers.

Regards

I will have to try that, thanks. I think I am still on rc3. I will let everyone know my thoughts.

If you have anything to add to my site heffo, please let me know. I am just reporting right now on my own experiences, so if you have anything to add, write it up and I will post it up.

I have installed the latest alsa, and it did solve the headphone jack & distortion problems.
