    Red face Problem with ALSA


    Hey, how things going....days ago I asked some info about a trouble about ALSA and my Gentoo Linux, the trouble was that I have the module for my sound card but simply doesn't sound.
    I tried everything, and still I have no sound. I have and SIS AC'97 card. The KMix show the card and everything but nothing happens.
    Then I see the ALSA Mixer, but instead of the name of my card, simply says "Dummy", does someone knows that if this is the problem? if there it is, how can I fix it?

    Thanks dudes

    Have you tried running alsaconf from the command line, to configure the soundcard first? Any errors or anything?

    Yes, I run alsaconf and there is my card, then alsaconf configures it "normally" but when I want to change the sound values using alsa mixer, appears "dummy" in the cards name

    Well, when you ran alsaconf, did you happen to get a look at which module it is trying to load for your card?
    Can you post the output of
    lspci |grep Audio

    This is the output of lspci:

    00:02.7 Multimedia audio controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] AC'97 Sound Controller (rev a0)

    When I run alsaconf, this is the information that is show:

    snd-intel8x0
    intel8x0 Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] AC'97 Sound Controller
    Now ALSA is ready to use.
    For adjustment of volumes, use your favorite mixer.

    Have a lot of fun!
    but, when a tried to change the values of the card, appears this:
    Picasa Web Albums - blacknightawake - Manuel Josue ...

    Ok, try the dmesg command and see if there are any errors about the soundcard or snd-intel8x0.

    There is a lot of lines if I run that command, there is a way to see only the "sound" part?

    This is the last part of the dmesg | tails command:
