ASLA audio problem on Eee 901(Solved ish) Sub_title: Cannot move volume sliders, mixers don't work either
I am using the latest Puppy 4.3.1 on an Eee901 and using the tray volume control or AlsaMixer I cannot move any of the sliders except PCM. I ran the ASLA Audio wizard but no change. I've seen pets to download which contain Eee drivers but I'm not sure if they apply to Puppy 4.3.1 - it found my wireless with no problem and I think the function keys are OK but I have not tried the webcam (what is a good app to try?).

No-one answerd so I had to try for myself - there are some good tips on this forum, in particular search for 'ALSA configuration for Intel HD Audio' - many thanks to tempestuous. I found that my Eee 901 has the Realtek ALC269 codec, which unfortunately is not listed in tempestuous's post. Anyway I edited /etc/modprobe.conf and added the line (under an exiting options line) -
options snd-hda-intel model=fujitsu
I guessed at the model type, but after a reboot the volume control is now working. The line out slider does not move but the headphone socket produces sound so I'm happy. Now all I need is a good music player.
