solution for intel sound cards here


hello all

this is the solution for the problem of the sound card on notebooks model 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 02)

finally i find the solution for this problem that makes me bored and confused ….

first :-

do lspci | grep Audio

and then u get the type of your sound card 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 02)

second :-

then download the lastest alsa Driver ,asla Util and alsa Lib from >>www.alsa-project.org <<

third:-

In a shell type these commands:
Make a directory to store the alsa source code in.
cd /usr/src
mkdir alsa
cd alsa
cp /downloads/alsa-* .
Now unzip and install the alsa-driver package
bunzip2 alsa-driver-xxx
tar -xf alsa-driver-xxx
cd alsa-driver-xxx
./configure --with-cards=hda-intel --with-sequencer=yes;make;make install
In a shell type these commands:
Make a directory to store the alsa source code in.
cd /usr/src
mkdir alsa
cd alsa
cp /downloads/alsa-* .
Now unzip and install the alsa-driver package
bunzip2 alsa-driver-xxx
tar -xf alsa-driver-xxx
cd alsa-driver-xxx
./configure --with-cards=hda-intel --with-sequencer=yes;make;make install
In a shell type these commands:
Make a directory to store the alsa source code in.
cd /usr/src
mkdir alsa
cd alsa
cp /downloads/alsa-* .
Now unzip and install the alsa-driver package
bunzip2 alsa-driver-xxx
tar -xf alsa-driver-xxx
cd alsa-driver-xxx
./configure --with-cards=hda-intel --with-sequencer=yes;make;make install

Now unzip and install the alsa-lib package
cd ..
bunzip2 alsa-lib-xxx
tar -xf alsa-lib-xxx
cd alsa-lib-xxx
./configure;make;make install
Now unzip and install the alsa-utils package
cd ..
bunzip2 alsa-utils-xxx
tar -xf alsa-utils-xxx
cd alsa-utils-xxx
./configure;make;make install
after that add this to shell
#modprobe snd-hda-intel;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss

then type #alsaconf and it will work automatically then type #alsamixer to check than every thing is unmutted then every thing is ready to work just play your favorite track and just smile

does this suggestion work with with Intel Corporation 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 04) sound card? (result of lspci).
i have problem with sound since i installed kde.
before kde i had sound in gnome, but now i have sound only through headset,
both in gnome and kde.
i have installed all of alsa on my ubuntu dapper and i want to enable sound through the laptop speakers.
the laptop i'm running dapper is an hp pavilion dv4324.

Still nothing. Besides alsa drivers are not Desktop environment specific.
They are drivers, not applications

I disagree again. if you know about ubuntu, it can update anything installed through apt application.
Since i installed ubuntu it has updated the kernel from 2.6.12 to 2.6.15 i think.
The weird thing is that when i use the live cd everything works fine, but when i install properly something doesn't, in my case sound out of the speakers.
By the way i have reinstalled ubuntu and the sound comes out of the speakers but now the microphone doesn't work when i plug it in the microphone mini jack.
In another forum i 've read that sound on hp laptops(mine is hp) is buggy. i'm not sure though if it's true or not.
Personally i believe that the bug is distribution specific and not kernel specific, but in ubuntu forums i haven't found any help. I suppose it's about time to get rid of kubuntu once and for all and install slack on my laptop, since i'm completely satisfied by it on my desktop.
Besides, the only reason i did not choose slack for my laptop as well, was because i thought that hardware detection would be easier through ubuntu and because at this moment i don't have time or the mood to search my hardware in order to complete the installation.
I'll keep searching but thank u very much for your interest.
If you have any other good ideas i'm willing to hear them.
