I have checked the mixer (aumix). Nothing is muted. All are high.
I have installed kernel 2.6.23 too. But nothing works. No sound is

Check in alsamixer that the "IEC" switch isn't turned on if the sound
card has that.
ALSA rudely (and stupidly) defaults to digital output on some soundcards
and on others turns on that IEC switch which does something to the
audio... I've never figured it out or researched it.
Quite annoying though -- yet another Linux developer's idea of "forcing"
folks to new tech... instead of choosing sane defaults.
