Very Low Sound in Ubuntu 8.04
Hi All!I have just switched back to Ubuntu Linux. But I am facing a problem that the volume is too low in Linux whereas in Windows XP is working perfectly fine. I tried to set the volume for Player to the highest and highest for the system too. But It didn't help me much. It is like my system is sounding just 25% of the volume which is available in Windows XP.

Can somebody help me in set the volume to the highest, so I can enjoy the music in Linux too.

Type "alsamixer" on terminal and look at the level of sound.

Just a question... why are you using ubuntu 8.04 when it has been out of date and unsupported for a few years now
(it is 5 years old after all)
try somthing a bit more recent like 12.04

I'M sorry, but I don't using ubuntu 8.04 ... I'm using backtrack 5 R2 (based in ubuntu) and I had problem with the low sound. Thanks for all ... for the suggestion ;-)

Ahhh that would explain things. the thread title made out that you were running a very very old version of ubuntu

Juist a querstion why are you running what Is a very technical and speciliased distrubution designed for linux and network experts to run penatration tests on their own networks

Sorry, the simple answer to that is no.

BackTrack is a highly specialized distro, where a lot of normal tasks are not done automatically for you as they are in a mainstream distro.

Our best advice if you wish to start off using linux with BackTrack as your first linux operating system, is don't.

Start off by downloading a copy of Kubuntu (as it is a similar base operating system to BackTrack) boot into that and force yourself to do everything you are used to doing on a daily basis using that, preferably spending most of your time using the command line tools. When and only when you can perform all of those daily tasks without having to look-up the commands should you move to BackTrack.

Please don't take this as us saying you shouldn't use BackTrack, take it as friendly advice that you are letting yourself in for a whole world of pain and frustration if you are not fully comfortable performing administration of your own linux machine before you start with Backtrack.
