ALSA--> Sound not working


Hi, I am using ubuntu, and i am trying to get my sound working.
At the moment i can get neither onboard or my soundcard to work.
I however no they both worked with yoper automaticly.

When I type alsaconf in the console it cannot find the command.
Does this meen I do not have alsa?

If I remember correctly, Ubuntu uses arts by default. What soundcard do you have and what is the output of lsmod?

you have to issue command lsmod in the console/shell and paste your output here. I am having similar problems with arts.. is it possible to use alsa instead in ubuntu?

Thanks

`lspci` should show you your soundcard if it's PCI or onboard. General instructions for ALSA can be had here.
