Re: sound card
Since I made some trials with the source I did the following:
1. "make uninstall" for all the alsa-* source dir I had tried to install
2. aptitude purge alsa-base alsa-utils
3. aptitude install alsa-base alsa-utils libesd-alsa0
4. "alsaconf": I got the message: "no supported PnP or PCI card found"
I think I do not have the "snd-hda-intel" driver.
FATAL: Could not open
such file or directory
Any further suggestion?
Thanks a lot in advance, again.

I do not know what else I should install. It seems I also need
pulseaudio, alsa plugin for pulseaudio...
If I try to start amixer:
ALSA lib control.c:874:(snd_ctl_open_conf) Cannot open shared library
I do not find a page how to track down problems with sound card
installation, what I need... (e.g. it seems that if I need pulse audio
then configuration files has to be created manually...)
Any suggestion how to do soundcard installation&troubleshooting?
For non-expert :-)
Thanks a lot in advance,
#apt-get install alsa-base alsa-utils libesd-alsa0
( if libesd-alsa0 does not exist, then omit it ).
After that, your sound card should work flawlessly.
These are the steps I also do get my Intel audio card to work in Debian.
