No sound after updating packages....(including update alsa)


I wanna know what's matter with alsa package. I had set KDE audio device default by ALSA whereas still no sound...... and It's running debian testing stage.
Code:

alsa-base:
  Installed: 1.0.9b-4

Won't you have to reconfigure alsa after installing a new version? i presume 'alsa conf' or that debian command for reconfiguring a packaged.

I'm sorry I can't help you. I tried to install Alsa too but without any success.
I don't want to hijak the thread, but how ( or where ) do you get the
alsa-modules-2.6.8-2-686 package ?
All I can see when I start Synaptic is:
alsa-base, alsa-player, alsa-utils and a truckload of alsa-modules but these modules are for the 2.4 kernel only.
Could you please list ( in the installation order ) the minimum packages I need to have Alsa running on the out-of-the-box Sarge with a 2.6.8-2-386 kernel?
tia



Now, that's a real Alsa howto
Unfortunately, it's for the competitor
