I have installed Slackware 10.1 on my Dell Latitude C640 laptop and am unable to get the sound working. First I ran alsaconf and it found the soundcard listed as: intel8x0 Intel Corp. 82801CA/CAM AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02). I let it configure everything and it tells me "Now ALSA is ready to use. For adjustment of volumes, use your favorite mixer." I type in alsamixer, I get nothing. I tried the Volume Control tool from KDE and it doesn't even load. I typed in "lspci -v" and got the following:
