Re: Sound Not working on T61

I did the following. But no sound. Not even when the tab key is pressed on the console. kernel 2.6.22 was already installed on my laptop when I upgraded to lenny.

# Compile alsa-modules
# (i.e kernel 2.6.22 + alsa-module 1.0.15)
apt-get remove 'alsa-modules-*'
apt-get install module-assistant alsa-source
module-assistant prepare
module-assistant update
module-assistant a-i alsa-source

Hi, the following is the mail that I wrote to many linux groups. But not able to find a solution. An update to this problem is today I found that I don't need Alsa or esd to simulate this problem. I removed both but the sound is coming somehow when the tab key is pressed on a terminal. Now I don't know the reason why It is coming :-)


I brought a Thinkpad T61 recently and installed Debian on it. I'm able
to play audio  files using mplayer/ xmms. But the sound is coming only
if I do the following things on the terminal

1. Hold the tab key when the autocomplete cannot find a matching file name.
2. Hold the backspace key
3. Hold the right, left or down arrow keys.

While mplayer is playing the audio file, I have to do something on the
terminal which produces the beep sound, to get the audio output. But
the beep sound is not coming at all.

If anybody experienced this problem, please help me. So that I can
move away from my laptop while hearing music :-)
