no sound at all no console beep nothing debian


I have no sound at all nothing. I just recompiled my kernel from 2.4.25 to 2.6.7 and now i have no sound. my users are part of the audio group, but i don't think that matters for a console beep, nor is a sound card that i know of. I'm not running X or any GUI at the moment because of my onboard video is frustrating, which is another thing i haven't been able to find easily on how to fix or trying it. I have the out put of lsmod and lspci -v for the video card and the sound card.

lsmod :

What config file did you use when you compiled you new kernel?

Did you just copy over your old kernel config file, the defconfig file that comes with the kernel or did you configure your own kernel?

I know when I went to 2.6.7, I had to modify the audio settings within the .config file. I had to disable OSS and ALSA on the kernel, but enable Sound Card support. Then when I ran alsaconfig (v1.0.5) everything configured properly. Otherwise I got the same no soundcard found issue.

If you haven't configured the 2.6.7 kernel, go to the

/usr/src/linux

cp .config .config-bak
make mrproper
cp .config-bak .config
make xconfig

(fix your audio settings and save/exit)

make
su -c "make modules_install"
make install

reboot and try running alsaconf again.

If it fails, you just have to make mrproper and cp .config-bak .config and remake and you'll be right back where you just were.

Hope this gives you some help.

i used the one in /usr/src/linux-2.6.7/.config , then configured it from there but all i mainly want is the console beep at least for now, i know it sounds weird but i kinda like it. The sound card shouldn't effect the pc speaker should it??

that I'm not particually sure of.. I usually rip out the PC speaker in my systems cause I find the beep annoying as hell. Only put it back in when the system won't start or something so I can hear the beep pattern given off.

Someone else has to answer that for you.
