Hi,


Double or cross posting in two different forums will not help solve your problem any faster. It'll only confuse you and us. Stick to this thread instead please. Also exercise a little patience, bumping your own thread will not get more attention. I reported the other thread as duplicate.

In the meantime you could try and see if this site helps you out.

Kind regards,

Eric

No, but if yours is a fresh install, all I can say is all my sound ran on first boot with the new Salix 13.1.1 XFCE version. 'Nuff said.

Hi,

Ok, that's a start already. You see why it's very important to point out what you have tried already, in as much detail as possible. Also it's very helpfull if you include any errors verbatim as you encounter them and check logs when trying something.

What hardware are you using? Type and make of soundcard, onboard or not? If onboard then what motherboard do you have? What desktop environment are you using? KDE, XFCE, ...? Those are some of the most relevant informational things you can provide in a first post when trying to get accurate help. The more information you provide, the better LQ users can get an idea of what might be wrong and help you to solve it.

Also put the output of the next command in your next post, between code tags. That's a good point to start and see if your soundcard gets detected.
Code:
lspci
Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

Are you running commands as root or as regular user? If regular user, did you make him member of the audio group?

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

OK, so this is your audio device:
Code:
00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 03)
Now please post output of following commands:
Code:
lsmod | grep snd
and see if
Code:
aplay -l
tells you anything.

Also, are you running as root or as user (asked before but not answered I think).

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

Sorry I didn't even noticed that in your previous posts (getting late after long day at work)
Try the following:
Code:
modprobe -r snd-intel8x0
modprobe snd-index8x0 ac97_quirk=1 xbox=1
and check if you got sound.

Also check if alsaconf detects your card after this.

Kind regards,

Eric
