I asked a question on how do I get an SB X-Fi Xtreme Audio CA0110 working three days ago. And they told me to install the Alsa driver modules from this website:


This answer did work and my audio driver was working until I updated my kernel...

Now the new kernel is Linux 2.6.32-27 generic. How can I get the Alsa module driver to work on this new kernel?

Or at least, how can I go back to the old kernel?

I tried to run this command:

apt-get install linux-alsa-driver-modules-$(uname -r)

And this is what I get:

Couldn't find package linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.32-27-generic

    you say that you have the audio ppa add to sources.list then do it again this command sudo apt-get install linux-alsa-driver-modules-$(uname -r) for the new kernel and see what happen – hhlp Dec 21 '10 at 18:51
  • yes i did what you asked, and this is what happens:E: Couldn't find package linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.32-27-generic – Osama Ahmaro Dec 21 '10 at 19:13

I've poked Brad (who has commit access to the git tree) and asked for an ABI bump. Once he commits the change and kicks off the daily build, the next available linux-alsa-driver-modules for 10.04 from the ppa should resolve your issue.

  • can you help me again, another kernal update had happened and i need new audio driver.. please help – Osama Ahmaro Mar 30 '11 at 17:06
