SOUND Correct driver installed but still no sound
 
I am having a bit of trouble with my sound. My current setup is linux-2.6.20.1 kernel, running Slackware 11. I have marked all of the important parts, or what I think to be important, in bold.
Here is a view of what's in my box:
Code:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. UniChrome Pro IGP (rev 01)

The drivers seem to be loaded according to lsmod:
Code:

Module                  Size  Used by
ndiswrapper          168136  0
via82cxxx              12164  0 [permanent]
generic                8456  0 [permanent]

I have checked everything and nothing is muted, the box I am using is a laptop and the sound works using windows.

I am not sure if this is the problem or not but there seems to be a dummy driver loaded. Here is a view of what cat /proc/asound/cards shows me:
Code:

0 [Dummy          ]: Dummy - Dummy
                      Dummy 1
 1 [port          ]: MTPAV - MTPAV on parallel port
                      MTPAV on parallel port at 0x378
 2 [V8237          ]: VIA8237 - VIA 8237
                      VIA 8237 with ALC250 at 0x1000, irq 19

Here is the output of dmesg

Maybe some one can understand all of this better then me. I can post any information that will help solve this problem. Thanks in advance.

OR maybe some one can direct me to some help. I think google is sick of me asking about this issue :p

I HAVE FOUND A FIX!

For anyone that may have similar problems I will just explain what I did and hope you find a fix also.

With a lot of messing with my laptop, a few kernel compiles, and a lot of stress I have manages to get my sound to work. All the drivers were installed as you can see from the above post's and it looked like sound was working. Because it was. I installed Dropline Gnome, right clicked on the sound icon in the top right corner of desktop, went to preferences and selected all of the control preferences, went to the switches tab and unchecked the External Amplifier.

Hope this helps.
