You probably have all the channels muted. When you first install ALSA the
channels are muted by default and you have to turn the sound up using a mixer
program. If you are running KDE you can use kmix, if GNOME use gmix, if
nothing cool then use alsamixer (console based). 

Also after you unmute and turn up the sound you shoud do (as root) 'alsactl
store' which will write the settings to /etc/alsa.conf.

I am using ALSA on my laptop, but I did not use the debs I compiled the
latest version myself.
