Mint 14 64 bit Audio driver installation

Postby neuroflare on Fri Feb 01, 2013 10:03 pm

I was having a problem with my audio being choppy intermittently since I installed Mint last weekend. I couldn't find any solutions for this but I did have what I equated to a similar problem with the default wireless driver. My wireless adapter wouldn't read the full signal and the connection was incredibly. What I found was to remove the current driver, install the latest from the manufacturer's website (realtek) and voila, worked like magic. So I check the hardware just to verify that the audio hardware for the built in sound card was also realtek, as I expected. I tried downloading both the AC'97 and the High Definition drivers, and both drivers failed to compile, one referencing libraries I have (libncurse) and claiming that I do not, in fact, have them. The other giving series of errors
Code: Select all
cp: cannot stat `snd-*filename*.ko': No such file or directory
where *filename* were various names of files that couldn't be located.

I'm not sure what to do from here and was curious what I should do.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Thanks for asking me for further informtation or even making an effort to help. I'll be changing to an RPM distro since there's actual support for them.
