No sound...is driver not loaded?
 
Ubuntu 10.04 live usb has no sound, but a soundcard is apparently recognized by the system:

Quote:

# lspci | grep audio
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 02)
What driver does this use? Do I need to find a proprietary driver for it? How can I troubleshoot?

Are you sure the sound is not muted.. I've noticed sometimes for no reason the sound is muted.

Yeah it's not muted.

Ubuntu 10.04 is getting pretty old.
You may want to consider using Ubuntu 12.04. Like Ubuntu 10.04, the 12.04 release is also a long term support (LTS) release. However, 12.04 will have a much newer kernel and drivers which may give you better results here.

For what it's worth, if you want to stick with the classic Gnome 2 look on Ubuntu 12.04 you can install gnome-session-fallback on 12.04:

Unfortunately, the Gnome developers will soon be dropping support for Gnome fallback however:

It is still available for Ubuntu 12.04 though.
