Configuring ALSA driver in Lenovo 3000N100

Guys, It has been a while since I configured audio driver in Linux OS for my Lenovo 3000N100 laptop and made it working. Thanks to guys working in Linux world. They are open-minded and ready to help you out in any trouble.

Here are the steps:
1. Download the ALSA driver package from an FTP site (Google it!!!) and untar it in your home directory.

2. If you really need to configure ALSA for your 3000N100, mail me. I will send you a patch file.

3. Untar the patch file "
patch_realtek.c" and replace the same file in the folder "alsa-driver-xxx/alsa-kernel/pci/hda/"

4. cd to "alsa-driver-xxx" folder.

5. Issue ./configure --with-cards-hda-intel


make install

Congrats!!! Your laptop is now ready to ROCK in Linux!!!
