Hi Adam_blackice

Tnx for the howto.

I'd like to know which distribution u used in this howto, I've seen u use Ubuntu Edgy and SLED 10 (same as I ) but with your howto I failed in SLED although I've not tried it in ubuntu edgy.

Did u get it working with ACPI=ON????

Tnx in advance for your Response.

Luis

not sure if you got your sound working thru speakers or not ...
if not try this ... mute everything except for the PCM and Master ...

worth a shot.

Tnx for your response adam_blackice.

In Ubuntu Edgy Eft and SLED 10 my sound card was detected with the right driver except that in both cases with version 1.0.12rc1

I have a toshiba Satellite P105 SP927 with the same soundcard as u. and the only way to bring sound up and running is by turning ACPI off at kernel boot time.

That was the reason of my question if u take back a look to my post at the end I made it.

Any how I want to thank u for the effort of this howto, it's always nice seeing people helping people.

To conclude, I followed your tutorial and it did'nt work , nevertheless I want to tell u I used mercurial repos and now I have better sound but still with ACPI=OFF at kernel boot time.

Kind Regards

Sorry to bother you again adam_blackice.

I've seen you coudln't solve it in Ubuntu but .... Did u Solve the problem in SLED 10 ?? If so, can you please give me some hints on how can I solve it?

Assuming you did solve it and just to make a clear statement, Turning ACPI=OFF and APM=ON did not help me in anyway. And for what I can read it really seems you have the solution and I really hope you can share it with us.

Kind Regards

Luis

Tnx for your answear.

The real problem on Toshiba Laptops P100/105 series, is a buggy BIOS Toshiba will not fix (AFAIC). However, there is a solution (workaround) for this given in Gentoo forums (search ACPI problems).

For SLED 10 users seems to be very easy to fix this problem as far as all the tools are included in the distribution. Anyhow, SLED 10 uses a very old ALSA driver and the most recent 1.0.14rc2 has the fix for CONEXANT chips (ICH7 family), so now I can say that my laptop works very well after fixing the BIOS and applying the latest patch to ALSA 1.0.14rc2 driver just FYI.

Kind Regards

Luis C. Suárez

EDIT: For Ubuntu Edgy users (with toshiba P100/105 series) the only way to have sound is by modifying the BIOS at initrd AFAIK or by disabling ACPI with its consequences.
