Angry sound on toshiba satellite A60 laptop


Anybody had any luck with getting sound on the Toshiba Satellite A60 laptop? Alsa appears not to support (already tried the available drivers). The sound is integrated but based on the Realtek ALC250 chipset. The windows driver is labelled as an AC97 codec, but modprobe ac97_codec or ac97 doesn't seem to help.

Any info., even if it seems insignificant could be helpfull....

Sorry, false alarm. Alsa works very nicely, it's the snd-atiixp driver... beautifull!

I had a problem on my A60 with the sound. I found that when I upgraded the kernel the sound didn't want to work any more... but then I upgraded again, and it did work, mysteriously. I upgraded both times with RPM, so I'm not sure why I had sound one time, and not the next.

It's because the atiixp soundchip is detected as snd-atiixp aswell as snd-atiixp-modem, that's not going to work.
Just put them both in etc/hotplug/blacklist and put modprobe snd-atiixp in your /etc/rc.d/rc.local , that will solve the problem.

While doing so, also put echo "force_on:1" > proc/acpi/fan/FAN1/state in rc.local to turn the fan on if you don't want a sudden shut down due to overheating.

Best regards,
Dick.
