Sound!!!! Finally working! :)

Okay, thanks to sedd, I thought: maybe I should use module-assistant and compile the alsa-source package, and so I did that and rebooted and it worked.

So here's the proper workaround for my HP Mini 1000 (1120NR) (without any manual compiling needed!):

* Add my team's ppa from
* sudo apt-get update
* sudo apt-get upgrade
* sudo apt-get install alsa-source module-assistant
* (optional) edit /etc/alsa/alsa-source.conf on line 11 you must have ALSA_CARDS="hda-intel" and this will reduce the compile time.
* sudo m-a a-i alsa-source # this will build and install automagically the audio card drivers
* sudo reboot

No need to modify /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf.
This *might* need to be compiled again if there is a kernel update.

Then open the sound properties, unmute Speaker.
You can also mute the annoying PC Beep (you have to into preferences first, and check the pc beep box).
