Have you tried to list and use available cards from alsa perspective
(your device names may be different)?
$ aplay -l | grep ALC
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC887-VD Analog
up to now, pulseaudio always failed, but at last I could start it
after removing the ~/.config/pulse directory.
I could then run pavucontrol, kmix, pactl, but still impossible to
have sound through the speaker, even after:
==> pactl set-sink-port 1 analog-output-speaker
==> pactl set-sink-port analog-output-speaker
using the devices given by "aplay -L", I only get the sound
through the headphone,
Idem with vlc(output set to pulse)
with ==>speaker-test -Dpulse -c 2 -t wav , I get:
Playback device is pulse
Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 2 channels
ALSA lib pcm.c:2495:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM pulse
Playback open error: -2,No such file or directory
