getting sound after kernel build?


hi i'm a newb and i just realized today after installing gentoo(using genkernel) that i
don't have any sound when i play my dvds.I realize that it's simply a matter of having the right drivers in the kernel, but i'm reluctant to rebuild.So is there a way of getting sound without doing a recompile of my kernel.

run alsamixer in a terminal, use the arrow keys to move the volumes up and the M key to toggle the mute, M means mute, 00 means unmuted...

after you get the volumes where you want them run alsactl store in a terminal...

if that does not fix it you may have to either rebuild alsa-driver or your kernel...
