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.

Your problem is a missing gobject-introspection, or at least something wrong with python bindings.
I only tested on VM, not yet on a real machine, so i can't give a precise answer on that, but the sound level is detected just fine here
FYI, i'm doing a second round of testing on a clean VM again just to make sure it works out of the box, since when i removed all packages yesterday and started a new compilation, some packages got broken (again). Hopefully this time, i got it fixed
