Slackware 14 without sound


After installing Slackware 14 as a Guest OS in VMWare Player and proceeded the installation of VMTools, I don't have the sound played. I think that the following outputs show things are quite normal, but I might be forgetting something important. Alsamixer showed me the Master volume setting is up and it let me no clues about what could be wrong.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

paulo@webserver:/home/paulo$ su -c "alsactl init" root

su -c "alsactl init" root ? is initializing the card with alsa?
you have no alsa modules loaded, only OSS.

So, I would
a) search if OSS is supporting that card (search the net; not a lot of success stories in the net)
b) search the ALSA configuration of that card
c) search bug reports for your card

alsa seems to work with few adaptation (pulseaudio..) http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...t-work-905902/
bug? https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...er/+bug/663114

It seems you had success. Great. Im happy.
Could you please post the full story how you achieved this?
Another person will read it, perhaps, in few months and will be happy to have a quick success by reading YOUR post.

Yes PLEASE share your solution! I'm having the EXACT same issue. I would be forever grateful.

**EDIT**
Nevermind. Turns out my issue was a simple adjustment of alsamixer. Things were muted and turned down to 2. Please do share for others though. Cheers.
