Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

It appears that I have two sound systems. KMix seems to know about both, but nothing I have tried gets sound to work.
Q1 - Why would there be two sound systems on the mobo?
Q2 - How do I get sound to work?
I have KMix and it sees both sound systems, but nothing I have tried gets sound. alsaconf is not in my repositories Mepis & Debian. Googling around I found this site which seems to speak about choosing the sound system to be master. http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/to...ault-speakers/
But I don't know enough to know if running the script he talks about would fix my problem. And I don't want to mess the system up by trying it out without someone telling me it wont bork the system and is easily undone if it doesn't work.
Also in googling for alsaconf, I found this site that also talks about setting up .asoundrc - http://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Asoundrc
The only sound I get are system sounds, but that is probably the little tiny speaker on the motherboard.
I took a look at the script and you could run that if you wish. All it really does it creates a .asoundrc in your home directory. To undo it or reverse it you would just delete the .asoundrc from your home directory.
