Oh God Hd Audio Driver for Linux

| Comments

hi guyz;

Well after solving problem for my lan card through mac spoofing next problem that I want to solve now is making sound work on my acer laptop while running fedore core 6 live cd.

Now as i inspect my hardware i get to know that i have a realtek sound card that has hd audio codec Alc 883 now.

to check if your hardware is detected by linux or not you have to run following command in shell

/sbin/lspci

This will list hardware check your sound card vendor and note model for your card.

output of sbin/lspci for my laptop is listed below

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/PM/GMS/910GML Express Processor to DRAM Controller (rev 04)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller (rev 04)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller (rev 04)
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 04)

Now as i googled i come to know that this problem is because alsa bug and older kernel many users with latest kernel like 2.6.17 and fedora 6 live hai kernel 2.6.18 so i think i don’t need to play with kernel.

You can also find currently running modules for your sound card by running following into shell

/sbin/lsmod

output of /sbin/lsmod is given below
