Question No Mixer Detected, Sound Card IS detected, No Sound?


For sake of completeness, I gathered a bit of information on things and now hope (desperately) that someone out there can help me! Not sure if what I gathered tells anyone anything, but here goes... Okay, so I gathered the following:

Code:
[root@localhost ~]# alsamixer
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device

[root@localhost ~]# /sbin/lsmod | grep snd
snd_emu10k1 93769 0
snd_rawmidi 26725 1 snd_emu10k1
snd_pcm_oss 47609 0
snd_mixer_oss 17217 1 snd_pcm_oss
snd_pcm 97993 2 snd_emu10k1,snd_pcm_oss
snd_timer 29765 1 snd_pcm
snd_seq_device 8137 2 snd_emu10k1,snd_rawmidi
snd_ac97_codec 64401 1 snd_emu10k1
snd_page_alloc 9673 2 snd_emu10k1,snd_pcm
snd_util_mem 4801 1 snd_emu10k1
snd_hwdep 9413 1 snd_emu10k1
snd 54053 9 snd_emu10k1,snd_rawmidi,snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss, snd_pcm,snd_timer,snd_seq_device,snd_ac97_codec,sn d_hwdep
soundcore 9889 1 snd

[root@localhost ~]# gedit /etc/modprobe.conf
include /etc/modprobe.conf.dist
alias eth0 e100
alias snd-card-0 snd-emu10k1
options snd-card-0 index=0
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
install snd-emu10k1 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-emu10k1 && /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-emu10k1 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; };
alias sound-slot-0 snd-emu10k1
alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 uhci-hcd
Does this help at all explain why my system detects a sound card, but when I try running alsamix I get the above error and if I try kmix I get "Mixer cannot be found"?

Did you try running
Code:
alsaconf
in a terminal as root? Does it detect your sound card?

No, it didn't detect anything. BUT I just installed the Alsa drivers and packages and am currently updating everything via Up2Date, then will restart the computer. I'll try it again after that and post my results here... Thanks for the help! Will post results as soon as I get them.
