How do I know if my sound card is broken?


Ubuntu Studio 12.04

I can't get sound at all. BUT, I do see sound coming "in", as registered in Audacity.

Is my sound card broken?

Any help MUCH appreciated..

Hi!
There are some Terminal / Konsole commands - it depends on the distribution you use if they are available:
Code:
lshw
and
Code:
inxi -F
are listing hardware
Code:
alsamixer
supports sound cards

Thanks for the advice, Alfredo.
As I write this, some things have progressed. I've autoremoved Pulseaudio from my PC. It seems to have been working backend, and probably creating conflict.
After rebooting, and tweaking input and output in ALSA, I've got Audacity working again. Yeah!

I read somewhere else where someone was scratching their head as to why Ubuntu Studio 12.04 has Pulseaudio. I agree with them. It seems quite unnecessary, especially with ALSA and Jack already available.

Oh well!

Thanks again,
brian
