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.

I have been looking around for the answer to this with no success. I was getting help on another forum but haven't heard anything in a while. Here is the link so hopefully someone can pick up with me where I left off. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1028012
I am running ubuntu 8.10 (intrepid) gnome 2.24.1. I do have another sound card to use for testing if needed. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

i see 2 sound devices a ESS card..and the motherboard sound..both should work ...are the modules loaded?? do you see modules for the sound cards when you do lsmod in command line??From reading other post..i dont see the reason for trying to compile alsa when its should already be installed with ubuntu.. http://cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/SND.html
bash: alsaconf: command not found
alsa alsactl alsamixer
jdimaio@box:~$ sudo alsaconf

sudo: alsaconf: command not found
VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controller (rev 50) There is a driver for this, if it is not included in your kernel. Try to run alsamixer and up the volumes almost all the way for the front and for the master. Then try a sound application to play a sound. Just to be sure, also run:
theres no reason to try alsaconf..as it has been removed from Ubuntu..alsa is installed..the sound devices are supported..it should work....Do you have motherboard sound disabled in bios??I have a desktop with a Epox board with a via chipset running Debian lenny ..with same onboard sound and it works..so I know for a fact yours should work too.
