There is no error message.  But the test did not stop
by itself, so I have to use Ctrl-C to stop it.  Here
is the output.

Yes, the "Master", "Master M" and "PCM" are unmuted. 
But when I use XMMS to play the music, or want to make
Gnome play system sound, there is only elctrical noise
 Is this noise problem associate with Gnome?  Is there
some Gnome tools to configure sound card?  I can find
the network card configuration tools
(Desktop->Administration->Networking), it is easy to
use.  Maybe there is similar tools for sound card.  If
yes, which package I should install? 

By the way, the sound card works well in Windows XP.
