I am trying to get sound for my granddaughter; so I am using sesamestreet.com as my trial site.

On a previous response to a thread I was told to do the below command; which didn't work then, but does now.
But, there is still no sound.

Great if your using alsa I would save those settings
alsactl store
also I like alsamixer, all you have to do is press m to unmute and the up key to raise
press the -> to move right and <- key left ect. Esc to quit
apt-get install alsamixer
but if it is working I would just leave it as, maybe next time

If it is working I would just leave it alone. Later if you want to you can try it again.
I would just do
apt-get update
apt-get install alsa-utils
Some times debian is in the process of fixing or updating something and if you just try later it seems to go fine. When I try to force it sometimes it is not so good...

No sound again!?

The sound was working fine; and then stopped. amixer doesn't look any different from the first time. I retried "amixer set PCM 100 unmute", but to no avail.

What kind of soundcard is it? you can use lspci. Also see what modules are loaded for it with lsmod.

I don't have alot of time to walk you through it now but first see if you have the module;
modprobe snd-ens1371
then follow this
http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc...module=ens1371
If you have the module skip down to

No Sound

I was having another problem, of Input/Output errors; but I used Knoppix to run an e2fsck on all of the devices. I don't know if this has any bearing on the sound problem.

STILL NO SOUND

I recompiled my kernel, and made snd_ens1371 a module.

These are some listings that might be of help.
