view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey, I just got a hp dv8 laptop. Everything pretty much worked out of the box. Video - works great after apt-get install nvidia-glx-185 (karmic) wireless - worked right away however, the sound is strange. It seems like there is only sound coming out of the sub-woofer. the card seems to be 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio (rev 05) the alsa info is here http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=a3...1a88c01cf4646a phonon describes it as stac92xx There is also a gain for treble and bass on above the keyboard (next to volume control). Unfortunately, that gain is inactive though. The headphone jack seems to be dead too. Hopefully there are more people with this laptop. ;) (Hardware)
