I changed out ALSA in favour of OSS4. Due to some compatibility issues with an external soundcard, I have to switch back to ALSA. However, after removing OSS4 (using apt-get purge) and reinstalling ALSA following the quick install guide (http://alsa.opensrc.org/Quick_Install
) my soundcard is not recognized! It still shows up if I do lspci | grep Audio, and sound works on my windows partition... so it isn't broken... but I don't know how to get it back.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
