Why can't I hear sound?
When I try playing an MP3 in XMMS I can see that the file is actually playing, but I don't hear anything come from the speakers. The volume slider on xmms is all the way up. I have also tried several other applications, and KDE's "test sound" button but never hear anything. I recompiled the kernel and selected my sound card to be compiled into the kernel. I am a complete newbie to linux. What am I doing wrong? Was I supposed to configure the sound seperately, or would that have already happened during the installation of linux?
The sound card is built into the motherboard (mobo is the MSI K7N2 Delta).
