    [SOLVED] Can't get any sound


    Hi,

    I can't seem to get any sound on my Ubuntu 9.10 distro. I've also got 10.04 in a different partition on the same hard drive, and it has sound. My sound card is an ESS Maestro. I ran #lsmod#, and here are the results:

    No Sound

    Hi,

    I'm having a problem getting sound on my Ubuntu 9.10 distro. I also have Ubuntu 1.04 on the same machine, and the sound does work on that distro. I've got an ESS Maestro sound card in my machine. I ran the command #lsmod# on both distros, and the snd line in the results is the same on both. I'm not real familiar with command lines and the results, but the snd line does have the word Maestro3 in it, which I think is the driver. Any help on this subject would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Jim

    Have you tried troubleshooting the problem using the links above yet?

    You didn't say in this most recent post, so we have no way of knowing what all you've tried.

    I've got sound! Problem solved

    Hey OZ,

    That troubleshooter worked great. I'd forgotten about that website. I've got it bookmarked now. My analog stereo and mono output was muted. That was an easy fix. Thank you very much!
