amixer alsamixer I don't have a mixer


I think I have alsa insalled properly, but I need just a little help to get going. Here's what I have:

I ran snddevices and got this :

(I know this is alot of crap, but here's my point)

Now! When I run amixer I get this :

# amixer
amixer: Mixer attach default error: No such file or directory

I run alsamixer and get this:

# alsamixer

alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such file or directory

What have I done wrong? Or haven't done? I know alot of people have gotten the alsa drivers to work on their machine, but I can't get it right. When I googled, I kept getting answers like run the snddevices script, did you run the snddevices script, have you tried the snddevices script and so forth. Please help! Thanks a million .

Oh, and my modconf looks like this:

alias net-pf-4 off # we won't use PF IPX
alias net-pf-5 off # we won't use PF AppleTalk
alias eth0 8139too
alias eth1 natsemi

oh, and I don't know if this matters or not, but KDE's kMix (like all the other KDE multimedia apps) just fakes about loading, then disappears off into the pool of dead apps.
