Sound on my HP DV7 with Ubuntu 11.10 64bit

Just a quick note, since I just found out how to get sound working on my HP DV7 (running Ubuntu 11.10 64bit).

Add the following as the last row of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf;

options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1 model=hp-dv5

Then, to test it, run;

sudo alsa force-reload

Now sound’s working. Lovely!

Works perfectly.
