Help with snd-via82xx in ubuntu


I'm new in this forum, so, Hi everyone!
I'm new to linux too, I've tried Libranet, but the pakages were too old and that make a _big_ broken dependencies problem with synaptic, besides I couldn't get my sound card to work, then a friend of mine lend me his copy of Mandriva for me to check it out, I didn't like it 'cuz the KDE based grafical hardware configurator was so _dumb_, it' didn't let me configure my video and audio card properly,I had to configure the sound manually using a terminal, and that was kinda fun , and it works!, but I wanted to try another flavor....

So I've installed ubuntu, and I can't hear a thing, but at least my video card, and everything else, is working just fine.
I got a "Via82xx AC97"
and I don't know what to do to make it work
I have alsa installed, but I don't know what else to do
please help me

I have the same sound card, but I currently don't use Ubuntu. First type
Code:
lspci
in your terminal, see what that says. If the card is there, then type
Code:
alsaconf
and use your mixer to unmute your card. If your card does not show up then as root
Code:
modprobe snd_via82xx
. Then configure with alsaconf as before.

Post the output you get when you type
Code:
alsaconf
. Chances are that your vard is already configured, try opening your mixer(whatever it is called in GNOME), or alternatively, use
Code:
alsamixer
. Trust me, you can get Via-82xx working in (K)Ubuntu.

I used both to unmute the sound, but still can't hear a thing, so I'll try a reboot

This is exactly my problem

Code:
alsaconf
bash: alsaconf: command not found
There is no audio in anything, I've searched every single Linux/Debian/Ubuntu forum and Google... I've followed every HOWTO

Still no sound

Here is the lsmod|grep snd output


Code:
lsmod|grep snd
snd_via82xx            25248  1
snd_ac97_codec         64608  1 snd_via82xx
snd_pcm_oss            47652  0
snd_mixer_oss          16768  2 snd_pcm_oss
snd_pcm                84872  3 snd_via82xx,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm_oss
snd_timer              23300  1 snd_pcm
snd_page_alloc          9604  2 snd_via82xx,snd_pcm
gameport                4608  1 snd_via82xx
snd_mpu401_uart         7168  1 snd_via82xx
snd_rawmidi            22944  1 snd_mpu401_uart
snd_seq_device          8332  1 snd_rawmidi
snd                    50276  9 snd_via82xx,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss,snd_pcm,snd_timer,snd_mpu401_uart,snd_rawmidi,snd_seq_device
soundcore               9824  2 snd
Nothing is muted, everything has 80%+ of volume in Alsamixer
There are no sounds from any programs or any filetypes, but everything works fine in XP

Strange? me thinks so.

Can anyone help....please
