sound not working, sarge with alsa installed


I just installed ALSA via apt-get and ran alas-conf but there is no sound. It detected the card fine (it's a creative audigy 2) and made a popping noise over the speakers while running alsa-conf. it looks like it's playing sound, but i hear nothing... no error or anything.

Please do some searching in this forum before posting these questions. Almost the same question was posted a few days ago (it is actually still on the first topics-page). Check this topic and especially 'Dead Parrot's answer: Sound won't work in Sarge

Do you get sound as root?

i did search, if you read the post you're referencing you'd see that he had a 2.4 kernel, an error message, and ALSA not installed. i'm already running 2.6, I installed ALSA, have no error message, and checked the mute setting in alsa-mixer first. so this is what i like to call "a different problem."

and i do not appear to have sound as root either.

Do you have the proper sound modules loaded? You can check with "lsmod"

You didn't mention in your first post that you configured the alsa-mixer and that you had run the 'alsactl store' command. That's why I assumed you hadn't read the post.

Can you give some more info?? What kind of soundcard do you have, etc. Do you have the right permissions set on the sound devices. Do you have al the necessary kernel-modules loaded??

it's a creative audigy 2. the sound doesn't work as root either, so i don't think it's a permissions thing, which files would i have to check, and which kernel modules should be installed?

I don't have that card but a bit of googling suggests that maybe you want to try removing the snd-emu10k1 and insert the module 'emu10k1'

where would i get the other module? i looked at the emu10k1 driver project at sourceforge, and it seems much less up t o date than the alsa driver...

you would do

Code:
# rmmod snd-emu10k1
# modprobe emu10k1
if that works correctly, then you would add snd-emu10k1 to /etc/hotplug/blacklist and emu10k1 to /etc/modules

Glad to see that was the right direction

It should just work now.
