Bug Description

Binary package hint: alsa-base

stout@aspen:~$ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 9.04
Release: 9.04
stout@aspen:~$ apt-cache policy alsa-base
alsa-base:
  Installed: 1.0.18.dfsg-1ubuntu8
  Candidate: 1.0.18.dfsg-1ubuntu8
  Version table:
 *** 1.0.18.dfsg-1ubuntu8 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com jaunty/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

That out of the way, my onboard Realtek ALC1200 isn't working in Ubuntu 9.04. The Alsa 1.0.18a reports correcting this.

From http://www.linuxstreet.net/news/E/22304/ALSA-1-0-18-Final-Now-Available-Lots-of-Changes.html,

Since ALSA 1.0.18 RC3 there were quite a few improvements to the Oxygen driver for some high-end C-Media APUs, many HDA Codec driver improvements including support for HDMI audio on the NVIDIA MCP78/7A, ALC1200 / ALC887 support, and many driver updates from the Google Summer of Code projects.

Could we get this package updated please, so that I and many others may have working sound?

Thanks a million,
Dennis Stout

Sorry, turns out my onboard is an ALC888 that was misidentified with
prior ALSA tools. My sound card now works in Karmic, but I think
there is still progress to be made on selecting audio paths. This is
well out of scope for this bug issue, but I'll throw it out there
anyways. As long as all you're dpoing is hooking speakers up to a
system directly, it's all well and good. these days though, a lot of
people are routing their audio through their HDMI ports to the TV set.

I think it should be significantly easier to do this than editing
various files. I'll send an email in about 11 hours with details on
what I edit to make it work.. Once the edits are done though, then I
can select the proper stuff in the pulse GUI tools.

Like everything else though, it _does_ work so I don't expect a change
any time soon. Maybe I'll write something for it when I'm on vacation
next year.

Do i have the alc1200 or 889a here? Got stutter and crackle with lucid alsa, got all fixed with the realtek 5.14 driver package from realtek.com.tw.

If there is a mis-detection on boot, the wrong driver is used and the nearly compatible codecs will not work cleanly. We should investigate this, there a lots of posts in mailing lists bout that.
