I am a returning Ubuntu user after a pause of a few years, so I have forgotten quite a bit.
My problem is that ALSA will not list my soundcard at all.. It cant find it.
aplay command returns with:
aplay: device_list:221: no soundcard found...
My hardware does recognize it tho:
:~$ lspci -v | grep -A7 -i "audio" 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio (rev 05) Subsystem: Lenovo Device 38af Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 11 Memory at 9b100000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K] Capabilities: <access denied> Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel 01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation High Definition Audio Controller (rev a1) Subsystem: Lenovo Device 392d Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 5 Memory at 93000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K] Capabilities: <access denied> Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel**
I've tried several things. This: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting
Updated kernel: My sound is not working in ubuntu 12.04
After that update, my system broke, so updated kernel to 3.5.0-45-generic
I guess you want the specs as well: http://www.lapspecs.com/detail/lenovo+g560 || It's the i5 430M'
Every time I boot up i get an error report on oss4-dkms:
DKMS make.log for oss4-4.2-build2005 for kernel 3.5.0-45-generic (i686)
cp: cannot stat`/lib/modules/3.5.0-45-generic/source/include/linux/limits.h': No such file or directory
I am out of ideas on how to fix this. Help is appreciated!
