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
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."
