It looks like linux-backports-modules-alsa-2.6.32-24 doesn't contain this yet. For a bug related to this, see:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...32/+bug/611810

One of the comments there recommends the following as a way to get a more up-to-date ALSA driver:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Audio/Instal...aDriverModules
Where I started with this is all is the ALSA Install Script http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1046137 and 256.44 then 256.53 all of which was covered in this guide. http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title...T220,_or_GT240

The backport-modules was another attempt.

Are you saying that the install script would NOT have the patched modules?

-------------------------------------------------------

I also did try the ubuntu-audio-dev/ppa at one point too, HOWEVER, I do not think I applied the linux-alsa-driver-modules in those same steps.

I will try that out and let you know.

--------------------------------------------------------

Do I also need to modify the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf either way?
