No Sound Debian Lenny AMD64 Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H AMD 780G
I just performed a fresh install of Debian, Lenny. Its on an AMD64. I have been unable to get sound working at all. (trying to use the optical ouput of Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H AMD 780G motherboard)
After doing a fresh install, updating, upgrading etc... I am using a CD to test sound with the default player (Sound Jucer). Nothing. Opened the volume control (Applications -> Sound & Video -> Volume Control) Unmuted any playback items, and turned up all volumes. Under "Switches" checked the checkboxes for "IEC958" and "IE958 Default PCM". Still nothing.
So, I opened up a root terminal, and ran alsaconf.
In there, selected the first item (hda-intel ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia) The only other option was probe legacy...
Chose yes to edit modprobe.d
(noticed one strange thing: after this there is a line saying:
amixer: Mixer attach default error: No such file or directory
It says "Now ALSA is ready to use" tho. Closed root terminal and opened regular terminal. Ran alsamixer. Made sure the IEC958 ones are all unmuted... everything looks OK.
No sound still! Rebooted, no sound still. :P
If anyone can help me out I would surely appreciate it. I'm a bit of a linux noob, but I did get a previous AMD system up and running with Debian / MythTV before, so I do have a little experience.
