ATI IXP AD1981B (Thinkpad R51e) sound on Jaunty

This was tough.. so here’s a quick list:

  • Your sound preferences should look like this:

[caption id=“attachment_243” align=“alignright” width=“150” caption=“R51e sound preferences”] R51e sound preferences [/caption]

  • Your alsamixer should look like this

[caption id=“attachment_244” align=“alignleft” width=“150” caption=“R51e alsa preferences”] R51e alsa preferences [/caption]

  • Install the following

sudo apt-get install asoundconf-gtk gstreamer0.10-alsa libasound2-plugins libesd-alsa0

sudo apt-get install gnome-alsamixer

sudo apt-get install bum

  • Your boot-up-manager should look like this (notice the unchecked PulseAudio) die.. pulse.. die!!

Reboot and enjoy
