Unhappy No sound on MSI P6NGM board

Hi all

Just installed Kubuntu 7.10 on a new system.

All working ok except onboard sound.

The mixer icon has a red cross and basically Kubuntu thinks the pc does not have any sound card.

Here it is here, I believe i uses NVIDIA® MCP73U/PV/V Chipset. Are nvidia releasing linux drivers for the sound on this chipset?


I'm running Kernel 2.6.22-14-generic

Any ideas?

Default Re: No sound on MSI P6NGM board


I almost have the same motherboard with MCP73 and I had the same problem on xUbuntu
I found a solution into the online documentation
Maybe it can work for you, so i'll translate it from french xubuntu web site

1 - Enable backports :
Système→Administration→Software sources
in the tab "Updates" enable backports

2 - Install the paquet "linux-backports-modules"
I was unable to install it by the GUI so I used the terminal (fr Kubuntu : K → Système → Konsole)
and enter the following command :
sudo aptitude install linux-backports-modules
once you've done with it, type exit to close terminal (konsole)

then reboot the computer and voilà (I hope)

ps : have you successfully enabled proprietary drivers for onboard video card ?
