Mandrake help - sound-


For some reason my sound card is detected and using the same driver my fc2 box uses and my sound works. I do not think it is a driver problem but i know a lot of distros come with the sound muted. There is a command (cant remember for the life of me) lets u un-mute and adjust sound.

thanks

Try one of your mixers, or from a terminal issue alsamixer and unmute from there.
good luck.

Let's try a different approach. Please post the output of the following commands from a terminal or konsole.

/sbin/lspci -v

and

/sbin/lsmod

good luck.

It looks like you may have the wrong modules loaded. Is the machine a dell? I ask because the card that is detected by lspci is usually a dell oem card. Have a look at this.

good luck.
