Please post the results of the command '/sbin/lspci' and '/sbin/lsmod grep | snd' both commands without the quotes.

We need to know the sound hardware you are using, and know if the sound module is loaded.

Quote:
'/sbin/lsmod grep | snd'
When you ran this command you left the /sbin out. A regular user may not find the command. You can run it as root ( sudo), or add the full path to the lsmod command. What the '|' is piping the output through the program grep. The 'snd' after grep tells grep to filter for the string snd. Alsa modules have snd as part of their names.

Try agian, i'm having a look to see what modules you should have loaded.

It looks to me as if you do not have something installed, lsmod should not respond as the .jpg shows.

Did the system not prompt you for a root password when you did the sudo lsmod ???

I want to know if you have lsmod installed. To find out, run these commands;

'sudo updatedb' ( no quotes, and this command will take a minute or two to complete )

'sudo locate lsmod' ( no quotes, this should list the file and location of the file if it is installed ).

Here is what it looks like on my machine.
Quote:
locate lsmod
/sbin/lsmod
/usr/bin/enchant-lsmod
/usr/share/man/man8/lsmod.8.lzma
cliff@duelie> file /sbin/lsmod
/sbin/lsmod: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped
I ran a file command on lsmod, just to fine out what type of file lsmod is. As you can see, it should be a executable binary file. If lsmod doesn't show up like this ( the path on your system may be different ),
we'll have to figure out what is missing.

We need lsmod to find out if you have any sound modules loaded.
