Sound - none happening.......


Always had trouble getting sound to work with Debian, never had it
working with Squeeze, though I might see if I could get it going again:

$ lspci | grep -i audio
00:1e.2 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation
82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 03)

I see a bug on the net against the hardware above on Ubuntu? It is said
it can be worked around with alsa-lib, but not how that might be done.

The following doesn't work:

# udevtrigger --verbose --subsystem-match=sound
-su: udevtrigger: command not found

My: /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base-blacklist.conf
Is like this:

# Uncomment these entries in order to blacklist unwanted modem drivers
# blacklist snd-atiixp-modem
# blacklist snd-intel8x0m
# blacklist snd-via82xx-modem
# Comment this entry in order to load snd-pcsp driver
# blacklist snd-pcsp
# Comment this entry in order to load pcspkr driver

Possibly someone could point me further, or see what I'm missing. I've
been without any sound so long, I don't really miss it, but it would
just be nice to have my Squeeze system working as it should.
