Re: Problem with sound in Lenny installation

Hi, Lisi. Please try to refrain from sending HTML in your emails if you can. See


We're geeks. We like text, pure and simple. :-)

You might also prefer to direct your question to debian-user instead
of debian-women, as you will no doubt get a broader audience there.

Please give us more details regarding the hardware you're using.

Also try the followinig checklist (yes, some of the things below seem
dumb, but you'd be surprised how often people mess up one of them):

     1) run alsaconf as root

     2) add yourself to the 'audio' group (log out and log in again)

     3) use alsamixer and unmute channels and raise levels (also try
     muting some channels)

     4) arts or esound stopped?

     5) OSS modules unloaded?

     6) speakers on?

     7) modprobe snd-pcm-oss

     8) does "aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Noise.wav" work for root?
     Test your sound with aplay and a wav so codec issues don't
     confuse the situation.

At worst, you might have a driver problem, but if you've already
managed to play sound before, that's relatively unlikely.
