  "no codecs initialized"

Status in alsa-driver package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  on a new computer (samsung all-in-one), and on a live ubuntu disk
  12.04 x64, my sound card is not detected.

  I have checked many forums for several months and cannot find the fix.

  I have two sound cards, motherboard and hdmi. Only the hdmi gets
  detected by alsa. It is not good as I am only using the motherboard

  The dmesg shows "no codecs initialized" for the first card.

  ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ lsb_release -rd
  Description:	Ubuntu 12.10
  Release:	12.10

  ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ lspci | grep -i audio

  ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ dmesg | grep -i hda-intel

  The same happens on other debian linux distributions. Before I change
  my distribution to ubuntu, I would like to make sure the sound can
  work on ubuntu.

  Happy to help debugging this if necessary.

  Many thanks in advance.
