Sound in Ubuntu 7.10

marzo 24, 2008

When I installed my Ubuntu 7.10, there was no sound, I did a lot of thing, compiling drivers, updating kernel, but at the end, I noticed that was really easy.

In the console you must type:

sudo aptitude install linux-backports-modules-generic

This will install the backports modules in your system, and i got my sound working xD

My card is HDA Intel.

If u wanna check your sound card, try this

lspci | grep Audio

I get this:

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)

If you get this, that means that we have the same card, so the driver is gonna work for you.
