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 was listening to MP3s and when the song was done, I left for like 15 minutes to watch a segment of a show on TV, I come back to a fully DL'd movie that I was waiting to finish while I watched the show segment. I go to click it and there is no sound, so I thought the movie was fooked up. I click other files I have, and there's no sound for anything!
So, is there a way to see if it's just a software issue or a hardware issue? LOL, I didn't do anything, I just left and when I came back I had no sound, LOL. I tried to reboot seeing if it was just a quirk...still no sound. Tested speakers with an MP3 player, so they work.... Considering this computer is 99.9% internet and MP3 and video downloading/viewing, without sound....this REALLY sucks.....
This vanishing sound problem happened to me too. I hope someone replies with a solution. I did check "enable sound server startup" under preferences/sound. it fixed it once, but the sound still seems to randomly disappear again.

run alsamixer in the console, and then unmute channels until you start hearing something come out of the speakers. If you want to store the settings for alsamixer, as root, run "alsactl store"
