Getting Sound To Work On Debian Lenny With ESS Allegro/Maestro3 Sound Chips June 21, 2009

Reference this Debian Wiki: http://wiki.debian.org/snd-maestro3

Reference this post here: http://www.chineselinuxuniversity.net/articles/11519.shtml

Basically, after installing ALSA you have to install the alsa-firmware-1.0.16 package, then run these commands:

rmmod snd_maestro3
modprobe snd_maestro3

I have this working on Lenny with alsa-driver-1.0.20

This fixed sound on a Dell CPx Laptop running Debian Lenny 5.01

If you get errors trying to compile and install snd_maestro3, go back to installing the alsa-driver and follow through with the command
./snddevices
