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 had a similar problem. For some reason alsaconf like everything to be compiled as a module in the kernel. Reconfigure your kernel and configure everything related to sound, alsa, and your sound card, into a module. This includes the core "sound support". After that's done, try running alsaconf again and then alsamixer to set the sound levels.
the important module here is probably snd_intel8x0
if you didn't get a lsting similar to the one above you can try to load the module manually modprobe snd_intel8x0
if you have a soundchip other than the intel you can look up the proper module here: http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc/
yes.I thing the sound chip buildin in board.And im using the same kernel as u.(2.6.8-4)
The thing is, i ve tryied loading intel8x0.ko before staring this thread.
the modules loads well.But still the sound is not working.
The sound is ok in windows Xp box.the system details from the windows shows that i m using Realtek semicondunctor Inc. Enlightenment sound system.
i ran alsaconfig it fails after i loaded a intel8x0 module.
where goes wrong.Or upgrading kernel is my solution?
Hi, I've been following this thread because I have the same problem as Bruse. In my case, it is a Dell Dimension Desktop with an inboard Intel soundcard which works under Win XP Pro, but not under Debian 2.6 (stable installation by Synaptic). The various mixer programs acknowledge that I have an Intel sound card, and nothing is shown as muted. However, I don't hear any sound through my headphones (no speakers connected). And yes, the same headphones do work on the same machine under Windows. The last thing you asked Bruse were for his lspci and lsmod. If I append mine here, would anybody care to give me pointers where I might look next?
