Yeah. That should give you some white noise. Any chance you didn't unmute the appropriate channels and turn up their volume (see alsamixer -- 'm'

Oops. So long since I have had the sound running that I completely forgot that alsa has the ridiculous default of muted sound.

I just tried the alpha-alsa.patch mentioned earlier in this thread but it
makes no difference.

Well that does work for me.

And I've just realised that the patched module I compiled and installed was never loaded as I had an older kernel still running on the system. I will have to run the tests again, and will also try the patched debian kernel you recommend. It will be tonight (NZ time) before I can do that.
