Problems with sound?


This may sound silly, but my soundcard isn't working and I can't figure out what the problem may be. I haven't thought much of it since installation about a week or so ago, only because I knew I had bad speakers that needed replacing. However, I just got new ones and I still have no sound.

Do I have to setup my soundcard (VIA VT1720 Evny 24PT Chip ( 8 Channel Audio) Onboard) and, if so, how do I go about it? I've already tried in the system menu but that doesn't seem to working at all....

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

what does this return?

$ lsmod | grep snd

If it does return a bunch of sound modules loaded then

$ alsamixer

and take off mute on master and pcm and increase the volume.

Sorry we are going to have to narrow this down a bit. What does this report?

ls -lR /dev/ | grep -i control

And are you trying alsamixer as a user or root? Also what is do devfs or udev or neither?

ps aux | grep dev
