You may also have to run alsamixer and unmute your channels as well as set your default levels. You'll also want to issue an alsactl store to save those settings across a reboot.
good luck.

Thank you Guru for ur reply on my pevious post,
I tried to run alsamixer, so i did a
--------------------------------------------
bash-2.05b$ alsamixer &
[1] 15590
bash-2.05b$
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such file or directory
---------------------------------------------
and thats the message i got. Why isnt the alsamixer not installed when i installed
alsa-driver-1.0.8 ? Do i have to do this seperately?
---------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------
bash-2.05b$ locate alsamixer
/usr/share/man/man1/alsamixer.1.bz2
/usr/bin/alsamixer
----------------------------------------------

I believe alsamixer is part of the utilities or tools packages. If it's not installed you can install it or use another mixer. Could you post the output of /sbin/lsmod please?
good luck.

Looks like your system loaded the oss modules. Try kmix or aumix to unmute your sound. Or you can install the alsa packages and drivers, after removing the oss modules.
good luck.
