https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Audio/InstallingLinuxAlsaDriverModules says:

"The Ubuntu Kernel Team produces what they call "Crack of the Day" builds 
of alsa-driver code. This is the latest development code that is being 
worked on "upstream" and has all the most recent fixes to hardware 
issues. We ask users having audio problems to install these builds in 
order to help us identify whether the issue has already been fixed or if 
it's also an issue upstream."

You will probably again get:

E: Couldn't
find package linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.32-40-generic

This looks to me to be the offending line:

sudo apt-get install linux-alsa-driver-modules-$(uname -r)

where "$(uname -r)" is replaced by the output of the command "uname -r".


mentions "linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.32" though ... Maybe that
is the package you must use?

You can also try "Install with Synaptic Package Manager" as mentioned
on that page.

Also on that page:

"For questions and bugs with software in this PPA please contact
Ubuntu Audio Development Team."

Good luck!


P.S. I just read your latest post, maybe my email is of some use to the
topic starter, for the archives, or you might just want to experiment :)
