arrow_back Intel High Definition Audio driver for Ubuntu 16.04?

Hi all, ran into the following problem.

I downloaded Mint 18 on a HP pavilion g6-2004er laptop. All works fine, except that for sound is used a generic driver, and the sound is, to put it mildly, not the same as on the wine. Unfortunately, after a lot of googling, I could not find any compiled drivers.

The card is: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: 92HD87B2/4

Not much depends on the driver. Most likely, you need to adjust ALSA and PulseAudio to suit your hearing, because the default settings may be too generic to consume the least amount of system resources. I think if you "overclock" your audio system, you will get the desired result.
Googled around a bit and found an article that might be helpful linuxoidblog.blogspot.ru/2015/06/pulseaudio.html

Yes, with this, too, dabbled for a long time, unfortunately, the settings only slightly tightened the sound above S16_LE is not exposed.

In Linux, there are no compiled drivers (kernel modules) at all. In principle.
I was looking for the wrong thing.

Yes, I peed my pants. For IDT there are sorts to compile the module, on the manufacturer's website, but they are quite old, after trying to compile them with gcc, nothing good came out, many errors in the code, maybe the version of the compiler is old
Eugene Ray :
It usually never has anything to do with the compiler, but kernel APIs change and modules sometimes stop compiling.
Eugene Ray :
The kernel modules are not compiled simply by GCC but by special build scripts.
Oleg Tsilyurik : Make file is attached along with the driver. The problem is that gcc 4.7 sees a bunch of errors that prevent the module from compiling.
