Try, in a konsole the command 'aplay -l' ( without the quotes ).

Here is what it shows on my system.
Quote:

aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 0: ALC883 Analog [ALC883 Analog]
Subdevices: 0/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 1: ALC883 Digital [ALC883 Digital]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
Is this what you want? If not, try 'lspci'. That will list the devices on your pci bus. This is hardware info only, and doesn't show any alsa info.

On my system;

Quote:

lspci | grep Audio
00:05.0 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP61 High Definition Audio (rev a2)
To list the drivers, if they are loaded, try;

This is a listing of the alsa sound modules loaded on my system.

Hope this helps.
