sound not working
No volume controll elements and/or devices found.
those docs are kinda confusing, i emerged alsa-drivers and alsa-utils but i just dont get the rest. if any one can help me here is myCode:
lspci -v | grep -i audioCode:
0000:00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02)
Have you tried running alsaconf? Try it, if it works, follow the instructions on the page I gave you from "ALSA Initscript" on.
Basically, there are two ways to get alsa to work, with the alsa-driver (which is what I did, as I used genkernel) or within the kernel (which I'll let someone else explain). If you used genkernel while installing, emerging the two mentioned packages should be enough.
Glad to hear
Now turn up the music! Oh, and to change the volume/etc., use "alsamixer", and "alsactl store" to store those settings.
is it required to use that for controlling the volume or can i just use the default volume controll?
You can use any volume control you wish, you'll find that there are many ways in linux to do the same thing. What I mentioned is just what I do in gentoo, as I have a very minimal environment, but use whatever suits you
