Re: HP Pavilion zt1130 sound not working


I have the dame laptop and ran into the same problem with sound.  The VIA site recoments using the Alsa drivers and has instructions on setting it up in Red Hat and a few others but no Debian help.  It wasn't that hard for me to figure it out from there, though.  

I have gotten MP#s to play, but cann't get system sound to work.  I got the DVD to work, but couldn't get sound to work for it either.  If you figure this out let me know.


PS - I'm running Sid (unstable) if that makes a difference.
