Try it with
Code:
apt-get purge alsa-base alsa-utils
apt-get install alsa-base alsa-utils
to make a clean reinstall of the distro's alsa packages.

This is most likely caused by your attempt to install from source, but shouldn't matter. Does it work now?

If you reinstall this may be the chance to think about a different distribution.

That won't happen Tobias I'm aware of how to use the advantages the Backtrack operating system gives me. I'm just new to the linux OS. Anything else I could do about my sound? still haven't reinstalled it.

This is an (K)Ubuntu kernel. Keep in mind that Backtrack is derived from Ubuntu, but they are not compatible and Backtrack runs on a custom kernel compiled with options for Backtracks special purpose. Running Backtrack on an Ubuntu kernel is somewhat pointless (IMHO running Backtrack as a desktop system is pointless anyways).

Hi,

Thank you for the note.
But unfortunately I am not able to see any difference after changing the kernel.

Could you please list out the special things enabled on the backtrack kernel 3.2.6. and what is the main differences between Kubuntu Kernel and Ubuntu kernel I was thinking till now only the Desktop Environment changes from GNOME to KDE rest base is same !!

I am not using backtrack as a Desktop system. This backtrack in on my netbook and the same I am using for wi-fi hacks and other small small hacks using the tools installed on backtrack.

Thanks
Regards.
Raj

But anyways, if you use Backtrack you should also read their documentation. replacing the kernel with one from a different distribution is basically the same as rolling your own kernel, so paragraph 16 of the FAQ applies: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/...ou_help_me_.3F

Just make a diff between the two config files and you will see, it may also be possible that Backtrack uses some patches, but I don't really know that.

Read paragraph 15 of the FAQ, it explains why Ubuntu and Backtrack are not the same and shouldn't be interchanged: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/...ck_install_.3F
