No sound in Linux Mint 9 on Macbook Pro 2010 (6.1)

Postby Caps18 » Sat Jun 19, 2010 10:49 am

I am having problems getting my soundcard to work on my new Macbook Pro (mid-2010, 6.1, 17") with the 64-bit version of Linux Mint 9.

I have tried turning up the sound in alsamixer, adding a line to the end of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

Code: Select all

options snd_hda_intel model=mbp61
(although I'm not sure if it is an intel card)

Code: Select all

cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec

Codec: Cirrus Logic CS4206

What else should I try to get basic stereo sound?

Thanks

Code: Select all

apt-get install linux-backports-modules-alsa-lucid-generic


This will get the sound to work, but it will kill the wireless driver. And since I don't have wired internet access until I go to work on Monday, I won't know if it is just a simple fix to re-install the wireless driver.
