    If you will follow the link I posted and run that script, I have a friend who is
    freelancing on Alsa HD Audio driver support (snd-hda-intel). We can get the
    report to him, and he might be able to help.

    And you are right about it not working on many Linux distros. I recently did an
    install for a guy to a laptop with HD Audio with the Conextant chipset. It did not
    work there, either, and the only hack we found on the net is dubious and not at
    all worth the trouble.

    Yeah, when I bought this machine of mine I had to wait a good two months or so before the right rivers where released. Two months without sound on a *bling* new machine isn't much fun But that pain is forgotten now.

    It'll all work out in the end

    i have the same card on a thinkpad running slack 12.2 with no issues.

    this might sound stupid, but did you also un-mute the 'speaker' in alsamixer?

    if you arrow to the right it will be the last option right after 'internal'

    ./tom

    Tom,

    Can you issue "lspci -vv" and "cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec"
    and then post the output of the portion for your soundcard from lspci, and the one
    line from the other command -- in code tags, please?

    kea, can you also give us the output of:
    "cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec"

    I want you to see that just because the card uses the same kernel module, it is not
    necessarily the same card.

    But, alas, the codec is crucial; the cards, not the same.

    wait...

    it may just be because i'm drunk, but the two outputs of lspci clearly show two different cards right?

    i realize they are using the same kernel drivers and modules (and different codec), but they are clearly different cards right?

    anyway, i only assumed we had the same card cause the output

    root@shithole:~# lspci |grep -i audio
    00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller
    are the same

    shitever, my audio works perfectly so i don't really care.

    apologies if i'm being obtuse.

    feel free to highlight my ignorance.

    i'm always interested in learning more about something that i don't know **** about cause it always just worked with little to no configuration.

    Mingdao asked for the output of alsa-info.sh. It was uploaded and can be accessed at a link I will try to enter here ("ou are only allowed to post URLs to other sites after you have made 15 posts or more.")

    Upgraded alsa-lib and alsa-driver to 1.0.20, but builtin speakers remained silent while earphones worked. I googled here and there but I could not find any useful idea.
