Easiest fix for sound Sony VAIO VPCEB1S1E

Easiest fix for sound Sony Vaio VPCEB1S1E

In my previous post I allready explained some fixes. But now it's even more easier, just follow these little steps

   1)Download the following zip file on your pc

   2)Go to the folder where you downloaded the file and extract it

   3)This will create a folder called "vaio_soundfix"
Because we will need root privileges we will continue in terminal:
   4)Open up a terminal

   5)Change the current directory to the vaio_soundfix you just created*

   6)type in the following command (caution: capital I) and confirm with enter
sudo ./

This will output something like:

username@computername:DirectoryWhereYouExtractedFiles/vaio_soundfix$ sudo ./
Now in directory /opt/vaio/vaio_soundfix
update-rc.d: warning: /etc/init.d/soundvaio missing LSB information
update-rc.d: see
Adding system startup for /etc/init.d/soundvaio ...
/etc/rc0.d/K20soundvaio -> ../init.d/soundvaio
/etc/rc1.d/K20soundvaio -> ../init.d/soundvaio
/etc/rc6.d/K20soundvaio -> ../init.d/soundvaio
/etc/rc2.d/S20soundvaio -> ../init.d/soundvaio
/etc/rc3.d/S20soundvaio -> ../init.d/soundvaio
/etc/rc4.d/S20soundvaio -> ../init.d/soundvaio
/etc/rc5.d/S20soundvaio -> ../init.d/soundvaio
All done, press enter to quit…

So the warning is normal.

   7)Reboot & enjoy the bootsound!

   *Some more information on how to go to the right directory. If you have for example downloaded to 'Downloads'. You just type the following command in the terminal:
cd ~/Downloads

'~' Must be a 'tilde' for some reason it won't show correctly...
cd is the change directory command and is followed by the directory to which you want to change. ~ is a wildcard that gets replaced by the home directory of the userdirectory. So this command will move your current directory to the Downloads-folder in your own home-folder.

For the people interested: You can also just open the script with gedit if you want to see what it does. I've commented it a little bit.
