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.

Not to offend, but are you sure that you have the speakers plugged into the right holes, ie. the ones for the pci card and not the ones for the on-board sound? Also, if you plug headphones into the card do you get sound?

Actually I was wondering if someone would ask this...and yes I am sure. I am running a dual boot configuration with windows. My speakers are hooked up properly and work well in windows...actually when I was first troubleshooting, I cranked them all the way up to attempt to get something faint thinking maybe the driver had changed...and...of course nothing.
Well, I have sound, but when I turn the speakers to higher levels, the sounds get lost in some backgorund noise. On other distros, this doesn't happen, so it's not a hardware related problem. My soundcard is an onboard one:
After that, my mp3's played but my CD's wont work when I use KsCD.
Roughedge: I believe the KsCD default configuration requires your audio cable to be connected from your CD drive to your sound card. If this is why it isn't working, then what may fix it is to click on "Extras" and go to "Configure KsCD..." and check the box under CD-ROM device which says "Use direct digital playback" and choose the correct device.
It's been a while since I played a CD (already ripped them to mp3,) but I believe it was a similar fix which got it working for me previously. Good luck!
Forgive my ingorance, but is your sound card an actual installable sound card or onboard? I was sure that there can be problems when using two sound cards. Not sure if it was a slackware problem or just a problem in general.
If you have onboard sound AND are using an installable card try
1. Disabling it in the bios
2. Running alsaconfig to ensure only one card is detected
I am sure some more experienced people here will be able to tell you quickly if that may be the problem.
You're forgiven. No, more like, you're my hero of the day.
Thanks for the hint. Disabling the other sound card in the BIOS did the trick (although I've never had this problem before).Thanks!
tanaselia: Sorry for my stupid question, but what does
I have an Audigy 2 ZS and I've had this problem before where sound doesn't work with other versions of Slackware. If you go on to alsa-mixer, there's some setting (I forget which) that has something to do with external sound or digital sound out ?or 3d sound? or something along those lines. It's one of those "mute" or "unmute" options. If you toggle the right one, then you should get sound. Assuming of course your volumes are not muted and zeroed, the right device is selected and your speakers are plugged in, etc. Just to double check.
I'll probably be installing a new copy of slackware soon so I'll try to see if I have problems.
Going back a ways so forgive me if my memory is fuzzy on this...
I think the audigy has a analogue/digital toggle. Look near the very end of alsamixer and make sure it's set correctly for the type of speakers you have. I've also run into problems with Live cards and dual boot where the speaker and headphone jacks get swapped after being in windows. So after checking the A/D settings try the headphone jack as well.
EDIT: Whups this is almost a repeat of the previous post.. seems I replied from page 1 not noticing the second page.. oh well
i do it success
i have no sound at first i see lsmod have some sound modules and lspci have sound message.but don't listen
then i try install amarok ..and it tell me no xine-lib .
so i install xine-lib and xine-ui..
then sound ok.i don't know why!!
amarok play ok!!
i don't change any modules files .at first i exec alsaconfig
and my mainboard is kt8 and cpu is sp2600+
