But with a little googling I got it fixed via this post, with many thanks to the writer. Although the sound card of my machine is a little different:
makker-laptop:~ # lspci|grep Audio 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02) makker-laptop:~ # cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#*|grep Codec Codec: SigmaTel STAC9205 Codec: Conexant ID 2c06His solution did work for me:
- Edit /etc/modprob.d/sound:
options snd slots=snd-hda-intel options snd-hda-intel model=laptop # u1Nb.bHIrUAw8+c5:82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
Luckily if Google is also your best-friend, it is a doable job.
