http://ubuntuforums.org – Can anybody tell me how to fix my sound in ubuntu 9.04? I have a VIA VT1708B. I upgraded the alsa drivers to the latest ones (1.0.21) and it didn't make a scrap of difference. I've got sound on the rear output but it's really crappy and distorted,and the front phone jack (on the case) doesn't work. I can't find any more info on how to fix this. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance, jim. Edit: Problem solved sort of...The PCM stereo link doesn't work. Breaking the link and turning either L or R right down seems to work. (Hardware)
