    Did you installed alsa?
    Code:
    apt-get install alsa-base alsa-utils alsa-oss
    Does
    Code:
    cat /dev/urandom > /dev/dsp
    produces any sound?

    Also, you could run
    Code:
    alsaconf
    to reconfigure alsa.

    This sound card should work out-of-the-box in Sid though :

    [QUOTE=antidrugue]Did you installed alsa?
    Code:
    apt-get install alsa-base alsa-utils alsa-oss
    Yest, I has install this packages
    ii alsa-base 1.0.11-3
    ii alsa-oss 1.0.11-1
    ii alsa-utils 1.0.11-5

    Does
    Code:
    cat /dev/urandom > /dev/dsp
    produces any sound?

    No , only I get these
    cat /dev/urandom > /dev/dsp
    cat: write error: No space left on device

    Also, you could run
    Code:
    alsaconf
    to reconfigure alsa.

    I run alsaconf and I choose my sound drivers,but still isn't working
