sound doesn't work on debian lenny


Hi to everybody. I've installed debian lenny 64bit on my laptop (acer aspire 5920) everything works except sound.

My soud card is Intel 82801HBM ICH8M and the output of lspci -v command is:

Code:
...
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)                                                                               
        Subsystem: Acer Incorporated [ALI] Aspire 5920G                             
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 22                           
        Memory at f0500000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]                    
        Capabilities: <access denied>                                               
        Kernel driver in use: HDA Intel                                             
        Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel                                               
...
and output of apaly -l command is:

Code:
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC888 Analog [ALC888 Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
I've isntalled the last alsa drivers and settled volume with alsamixer but anyway soud doesn't work! Can anybody help me?

output of lsmod | grep snd please..

Are you sure you are plugged into the correct audio jack on the sound card ?
Have to ask, theres so many audio jacks back there these days, I'd hate to spend a
ton of time trying to troubleshoot something then find out I had just plugged the
speakers into the wrong port. (yes I've done it before).

where did you install the alsa drivers from ? aptitude or synaptic ? or did you compile them yourself...

First of all i've compiled alsa driver from source code together with alsa-utils, alsa-lib, alsa-firmware and alsa-tool.

About your first question i didn't get it, "you are plugged into the correct audio jack on the sound card", what does it mean?
Sorry for my unknowing!

What can I do then to make it working?

PS.

1. I compiled the alsa driver manually installing kernel source prior to compiling a driver.

2. I doublechecked the right audio-hole 10 times! I'm running windows at the same computer and it works.
