This will give sound on the speakers after a reboot.
The on-board hardware volume controls work after installing “keytouch” (http://keytouch.sourceforge.net/) and selecting the HP nc6320 keyboard.
Works with kernel 188.8.131.52 (and possibly slightly older versions) with the following modules enabled:
When a card is inserted, it will show up as ”/dev/mmcblk0p1”.
Note: As of 184.108.40.206, the “ricoh_mmc” module may interfere with resuming from suspend. You will need to remove this module before suspending and resuming will work properly.
I run the latest ubuntu-8.10-beta-desktop-amd64 on it. Downloaded on 23.10.08. i am not quite sure why the loudspeakers dont work.
For a new architecture, this install went very smooth… no need to hunt down modules and fiddle with the kernel.
