I'm afraid I'm stumped, Cecil. I've never seen this before.
Every sound chip I've ever used had a PCM device in alsamixer.
What happens when you try to play a .wav file using the aplay
command? Do you get any error messages?
At this point, the only thing I can suggest is to install Squeeze
instead of Lenny and hope that the problem is fixed with newer
drivers. Lenny is getting a bit long in the tooth. It was
frozen in August of 2008. But then again, if your sound card
is significantly older than that ...
Maybe someone else on the list has some more ideas. I've
run out. Sorry I couldn't help you.
