I've tried following this guide:

http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthre...ultiple+sounds
And the sink doesn't show up

I tried running the tests such as the ones shown here

http://alsa.opensrc.org/index.php?page=DmixPlugin
And I get errors on step 4:
"can't find a suitable libao driver" and "pcm_dmix.c:868snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave".

try this


---->Applications
--------->System Tools
--------------->Configuration Editor
----------------------->desktop
---------------------------->gnome
---------------------------------->sound

uncheck Enable ESD.
exit Configuration Editor.
before you reboot check the Save Current Setup
this stops esd booting and enable alsa to be default.
then go into
---->System
------------> Preferences
------------------->Multimedia Systems Selector
change both input and output to alsa

Did what you said...but ALSA is still not showing up.

Tried to go over this tutorial again:
http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthre...ultiple+sounds

But no luck

technically you don't have to reboot, just kill esd, and start alsa but it's easier to just reboot.

I would also fire up xchat(or whatever irc client you have) and check #ubuntu at irc.freenode.net and check in there

I did reboot...maybe I didn't install Alsa correctly..? (although I was able to "apt-get install" it)

Yeah, I'm on the channl right now under the same nick...I'll see if I can ask around

so the alsa module should be called
snd-intel8x0

try to modprobe

or better:
run alsaconf ( as root )

alsaconf should be in package alsa-base or alsa-utils or such

_in case of failure_ ::
if modprobe fails you probably had kernel 2.4 installed ? the problem with kernel 2.4 is (was for me that alsa was not officially part of the linux standard kernel. So you will have to decide if you make a new kernel 2.6, install the standard debian 2.6 ( as I read in the install howto that one's already with sarge 3.1 )
or get to run good old 2.4 with alsa ( is it really that important ?? )

ooops, I just read the first half of your thread. anyway, I found that
http://www.alex.org.uk/T23/#Sound_Support
about your laptop, and on alsa-project how the driver/module is named
alsaconf is a nice tool to get alsa running

I ran alsaconf on the terminal a while ago and it said it couldn't find any PnP or PCI cards.

also, I looked at the URL you provided and the link to the patch is dead

Thanks for the helping out anyhow
