Help with Sound on laptop


Hi,

Is there a sound card configuration tool in ubuntu dapper drake? I have installed it on a toshiba satellite L30. Every thing works fine but there is no sound. When i checked with system preference sound module, I see an OSS sound and Alsa mixer sound.

what can i do to get sound to work?

thanks

Post the output of the command ' /sbin/lsmod ' to see what modules are loaded.
Run the command ' alsamixer ' and check to make sure master and PCM channels are up and unmuted. If muted then a MM is above the bar.

Looks like the module is loaded fine. Check the ' dmesg ' to see if errors happened during bootup. Other than that I am at a lost. Looks like one of those things that sitting infront of would be quicker. Check to see if there are any local Linux User groups clubs.

Have you tried running
Code:
alsaconf
Also, are there volume buttons on the laptop itself? If so, be sure to turn them up
