Re: New install - no sound

Oops. I reran alsaconf. That killed a process that was running (I don't know
what it was).  Afterwards, both XMMS and Rythmbox are functional now.
Thank you both for your helpful suggestions.  Now that sound is working,
I can turn to other problems - like whether to install a 32-bit chroot for
programs like Mplayer, Mozilla with Java support, etc.

Thanks again.  I really appreciate your help.

 In /proc/asound I have a symlink CK804 which links to a directory card0.
In card0 I have a file named intel8x0 and a directory named codec97#0.
There also other files and directories.
Connecting to other audio jacks does not appear to help.

I believe I have. As a user, I am a member of the audio group. I can run alsamixer as normal user. Still no sound. I visited this web site for hints - http://xtronics.com/reference/Debian-sound.html and looked at the list of packages it recommended installing. I noticed that I can't install alsa-modules because it isn't available. I am running testing - does that have
any bearing on my problem?

You only need alsa-modules for 2.4 kernels.  2.6 kernels have alsa
drivers already included.

Do you have your card listed in /proc/asound/cards?

What sound chip is it?  If it is an i8x0 ac97 chip, then try plugging
the speakers into the mic jack or other jacks and see if it helps, or
turn up the headphone volume.  If any of that works, you need to go find
out which ac97_quirk option you have to pass to the driver for your
