I have a relatively new Intel "Ultrabook", the HP Envy Spectre XT. It has the IDT 92HD99 sound card. Support for this was added to ALSA 1.0.25 based on this changelog:
However the ALSA driver version in Ubuntu 12.04 is 1.0.24. Can someone explain how to update the ALSA driver to 1.0.25? The alsa-base package says it's using a package version 1.0.25-dfsg-0ubuntu1.
Here is my ALSA version info:
!!ALSA Version !!------------
Driver version: 1.0.24 Library version: 1.0.25 Utilities version: 1.0.25
I think I need to get that "Driver version" up to 1.0.25 to get support for my hardware. Any help? Thanks.
