Lenny(Etch upgrade) on Thinkpad R61: Fn keys and sound issue
 
Hi All,

I recently upgrade Etch to Lenny using apt-get dist-upgrade after
changing all etch occurrences in sources.list. I am facing problems
that were there is Etch also, mainly the Fn+* keys not working and
sound not working(HDA intel). Had gone through a lot in internet
regrading installing packages such as tpctl, tp_smapi, etc and Alsa
divers for sound. Still i am not able to bring these up on the Laptop.
Alsa already has a bug report regarding problem with HDA intel PCI
sound. is there a workaround?

If anybody has done successful changes for R61 in this regard, please reply.

Regards,
Umesh

Which keys aren't working ?

Currently almost all my keys are working. IIRC, I had to define some
keys in gnome menu>System>Preferences>Keyboard Shortcuts.

I should review my instructions on the page, but you can still have a
look :

(Thinkpad T61 and R61 are the same machines. just different cases)

On the same page, check the "Sound" section, especially "No sound after
upgrade ?". (basically, the mixer settings are wrong).

A happy user of Thinkpad T61, with sound and keyboard shortcuts.

For me the Brightness keys are important. They are not working. Aso i
alsaconf, which gave error that no suitable PCI cards were found. I
even checked the Mixer settings for the PCM, MASTER settings. I set
Mixer for HD Audio intel and enabled both Heaphone and speaker
buttons. Still nothing. Can u give a step by step info on how u made
it work?


Thanks and regards
