  1. Toshiba Satellite A35-S1592 Sound

    Hello,

    I just got my hands into a Toshiba Satellite A35-S1592.
    The first thing done was remove Win XP and installing Debian Sarge
    Almost everything went fine with the instalation my only problem is the
    soundcard.
    I can`t get is working...
    Here is the lspci output for the soundcard.
    Any clues?? Has anyone had the same problems with this laptop/chipset???

    Best regards,

    Sauer

    Works like a charm for me (sony vaio) with the following kernel
    options : CONFIG_SND_AC97_CODEC=m
    CONFIG_SND_INTEL8X0=m
    CONFIG_SND_INTEL8X0M=m

    The only tricky thing I had to do was to mute the external amplifier
    in alsamixer : run alsamixer, scroll right to the external amplifier
    and press 'm'. Other people have reported this to work.

    $ lsmod | grep snd

    Weird. I have an A40 with, AFAICT, the same chipset.

    Just install alsa-base and it should work.
    Don't forget to turn up the volume though.
