Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I installed alsa-base package which presumably included alsa-utils etc... It's my understanding that the alsa drivers are compiled into the kernel (2.6).
I was added to the 'sound' group.
I run alsaconf...(i am root)
It finds my card and configures it...
Building card database..
Starting ALSA.../etc/init.d/alsa: Error: alsactl restore failed with message 'alsactl: load_state:1134: No soundcards found...'.
Setting default volumes...
Saving the mixer setup used for this in /var/lib/alsa/asound.state.
/usr/sbin/alsactl: save_state:1061: No soundcards found...
Now ALSA is ready to use.
For adjustment of volumes, use your favorite mixer.
Have a lot of fun!
How could it not have found the soundcard that it just detected and configured?!
I can't figure out what's going wrong... I don't know enough about it. Help would be appreciated!! thanks everyone
That didn't help me
Any ideas how to fix that. I get the same error message when booting up my system. Do I miss some configuration? or some file? Does my old OSS or eSD configuration mess something up? Any ideas where to look?
I'm really lost here. I've been googling for couple of weeks now. I really don't want to go back to windows because this sound issue. Everything else seems to be working pretty good. Please help. Anybody?
I'm having the same problem, will let you know when I fix it. (if I fix it.) it seems like it must be something minor, like a configuration problem, the right line in the right place, I dont know. dont go back to windows though. whatever you do.
I had this problem one time myself, however, when I ran the debian net install and had it download everything instead of using the CDs, alsa and everything else worked great. It must have something to do with the CDs themselves, but I'm not sure what.
Ok, ignore all the other responses people gave. Your problem is that you are not compiling sound support as a module. You may have the Alsa drivers as modules, but if you have soundcore (the main option for sound support) compiled statically instead of a module you will get these errors. Good luck!
