sound does not work with ALSA / snd-hda-intel


Hi,
I'm fairly new to Linux and now trying to get ALSA running on a mainboard with onboard Intel soundchip using the snd-hda-intel driver. aplay detects no devices and amixer says: "Mixer attach default error: No such file or directory". Tried everything from the ALSA troubleshooting manual but no success... why is the card not recognized?
Here is the output of a debug script I found. Up to now I just did "configure;make;make install" with alsa-utils, alsa-lib and alsa-driver...
Can anybody help me.
Thanks in advance
Christian

Consider uninstalling alsa-driver. Instead, install the kernel module (Device Drivers -> Sound card support -> Advanced Linux Sound Architecture -> PCI sound devices -> Intel HD Audio) and be sure to select the codecs.

Hope this helps.

That is an old kernel you are running. What version of what distro are you using?

it's a debian lenny...I think I changed the sound device settings to ALSA before when I was trying to get the sound working...but there is no further settings to make in the graphical frontend.
