Sound issue on Mandrake 10.1


Here I go again.

I run Mandrake 10.1 on a MOBO Gigabyte RZ, the sound comes from the Board. I have no dedicated speaker but 2 small speaker on the monitor (I know they work as I share the monitor with an XP box using KVM switch cable ). If I put a CD in the CDR drive nothing comes out, if I try to set the System Bell nothing. This is a home built, I am pretty certain that I have built the machine correctly.
First is there anyway that I can check that the PC is configured properly.
Secondly, what can I do to check the sound, i have run alsamixer, alsa config and I don't get any error message.
In KsCD i can see an error message saying "Error getting freedb entry"
After running alsaconfig i get this message:
"Now ALSA is ready to use.
For adjustment of volumes, use your favorite mixer.
Have a lot of fun!"
Anyone to point me into the right direction, thanks in advance.

Oh before i forget I can't see my CD mount on my desktop is this normal?

Hi,

I just got done with Mandrake 10 CE. I'm pretty sure it displayed the cdrom on the desktop but I don't know if they changed this for 10.1, I prefer not to see icons on my desktop.

The feedb error is in regards to the program trying to get the cddb information from the server (the cd name, artist name, track name).

I'd suggest running kmix (kmixer?) it should be in the multimedia section and make sure wav/master/etc isn't turned down or muted.

Try playing some of the local wav files (those that kde includes in /usr/share/sound or whatever)

Eureka, It's working, actually always been. I have just connected some speaker and yes it is working. So the problem is that the speakers from my monitor don't work with Linux (They work with my XP box). Ok I am happy with that, I will will have to find a pair of extra thin speakers as I don't have much room on my desk.
