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've noticed that on some sound chips (mostly ac97 from what i've seen), on xmms you need to configure the output plugin to use software volume control... you do that by clicking on "configure" after selecting the output plugin (alsa in this case)... of course this is just a maybe... if your volume control has no effect, then you know you need to configure this...
I ran urpmi xmms-alsa, went back into xmms, selected the alsa driver that is there now, clicked aply, exited xmms, went back into it...and still no sound , I am worried that my onboard sound may not be compatable with Linux
Yes, I have been to that already, that is where I turned the micophone feedback off, everything is up and lookin good there to, nothing muted..except the microphone thing that was causing those beeps and blips.
okay your lsmod said you've got oss up also so try telling xmms to use oss instead of alsa... or also make sure the alsa configuration (in xmms) has the right device selected and stuff... of course that wouldn't explain why mpg123 doesn't get any sound out...
i'm sure your card has to work somehow, i mean it would have been impossible to get microphone feedback if it didn't work at all... plus your xmms is using the spectrum analyzer and everything... usually when your sound is not set-up right, xmms will give you errors, and even kde will give you errors... xmms will tell you to go check your sound card and all this stuff... right now it's as if like xmms feels everything is fine...
Hmm, I just unpluged my head phons, and pluged em back in, and it make the little...I dunno how to explain it, but if u unplug ur speakers, then plug them it, they make a little sound, and that usualy only happens when the sound is working...but im still not hearing anything.
yeah i mentioned that earlier cuz i've seen it happen when the sound hasn't been set-up right... once it's right it seems it comes up at whatever volume pcm has been set or whatever volume you had it set last...
i'm still wondering why you can't control the pcm volume on your mixer... hmmm... not even as root in alsamixer???
