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 just installed an old ES1938 Solo-1 soundcard, as my onboard sound was messed up. Debian recognizes the sound card....but there is no sound (At least I had some sound with mt messed-up onboard config!)
I disabled the onboard sound in the bios..
Opened Alsamixer...volume is set at 100.....
What else can I do to try and get the sound working?
Ah well...that didn't work..... Same deal; It recognizes the card....but still no sound.
I forgot to hook up the wire from the CD/DVD drive when I installed the card...but that would only affect media I was trying to play from the drive, right? (I'll hook it up later, just for the heck of it...)
3) Can you just mention that your syslog has no mention of your onboard---no need for posting log at this stage
---its smart to disable it while testing your pc card snd but it can interfere, pesky things they are.
but we don't know if interference from other IRQs so post this output pls
(I un-muted the 3Dcntrl...just in case...but it made no difference)
2)- No, I haven't read that particular piece. Hadn't found it yet (Not for lack of Googling, though!)
Here is the output of modinfo snd:

author: Jaroslav Kysela <email@example.com>
description: Jack detection support for ALSA

vermagic: 3.2.0-4-686-pae SMP mod_unload modversions 686
parm: slots:Module names assigned to the slots. (array of charp)
parm: major:Major # for sound driver. (int)
parm: cards_limit:Count of auto-loadable soundcards. (int)
3)I've tried it with the onboard sound disabled and in "auto" through the BIOS...no difference. (Funny thing is: I used to have some sound through the onboard sound...now if i enable it and plug the speakers in to it, I have NO sound, even through that! )
