    Angry Sound Issues


    Hi All.
    I have a dell inspiron 8100 laptop and i just installed debian squeeze.
    Everything is working fine..... except sound.
    I discovered i have a maestro3 sound card so i followed the instructions at the debian wiki using firmware version 1.0.23.
    Everything seems to work until i try to modprobe
    Code:
    # modprobe -r snd-maestro3 ; modprobe snd-maestro3
    FATAL: Module snd_maestro3 not found.
    FATAL: Module snd_maestro3 not found.
    Any help would be appriceated.

    GStreamer was unable to detect any sound devices. Some sound system specific GStreamer packages may be missing. It may also be a permissions problem.

    Hey,

    I don't run Debian, but as you haven't heard anything yet, I'll try to help...

    Those messages about snd.ko missing are strange. Could kernel drivers have been accidentally deleted somehow? In any event, can you install an updated kernel from the Debian repos? Or even re-install the current one, in order to get all the missing drivers back. Some suggestions on how to do that are here.
