Re: sound problem

1 Wich sound card do you have?******in Debian you may use sndconfig as in RH or alsaconf whatever you want******if you don`t have anyone you may installit with apt-get (apt-get install sndconfig or apt-get install alsaconf) then may be you must have in kernel installed the needed modules, then you may use modconf. Just tipe modconf in shell (konsole, xterm, whatever you want)

Re: sound problem

When you use bleeding edge hardware or laptops, sometimes your choice of distributions is limited.

Fedora Core 1 is solid, reliable and probably supports your sound card. Think about it.

Also, is it possible the card has failed? Try the test untilities that came with the computer.

Re: sound problem

Hi,

check the contents of /proc/sound . Is your card recognized at all? If yes which devices are setup for the card?

Re: sound problem

Hi,

Debian is strick with handing out permissions, you need to be in a specific group to be allowed to talk to the device. Check permissions on /dev/sound and put yourself in that group.

If this doesn't work, you'll need to check if your kernel module is loaded.

HTH,

Robert
