Sound on NEC Ready 120LT


I debated over whether to post this here or in the laptop forum but since it is more of a general question then laptop specific I decided to post it here.

I'm running VectorLinux and I can't get sound from my notebook. I have heard of ALSA but i don't know what it is or what commands to use to access it. Please Help.

I have read elsewhere that the sound on this little workhorse is soundblaster compatible.

Thanks for your help

Just FYI here are the system specs.

200mhz Cyrix Processor
32MB RAM
2GB Hard Drive
Vector Linux
(The hard drive doesn't even have enough space to compile the latest version of the linux kernel)

What is the output from /sbin/lspci -v, and lsmod? Have you tried running a mixer and unmuting sound?
good luck.

<edit>It may be an isa card, try a pnpdump as well.</edit>

I can't include the spci and lsmod ouputs because I'm no on that computer. I don't have internet access at home right now so I'm using the library computers for the internet and I don't have the time to write down the output then type it in.

I also tried the mixer and may have also found a possible problem. The included mixer, aumix, says it has an error when it starts up. When I get internet next week I'll see what I can do.

Thanks for your help

The mixer error is probably due to the cards module not be loaded. When you get a chance to post the info, hopefully we'll get this sorted.
good luck.
