    RH 9.0 unable to play sound....


    I am using red Hat 9.0, with
    sound card : VT8233AC97 Audio controller.
    Driver : Via82cxxx_audio

    Once in a while I made the thing to do some work,. i.e. play some sound.
    It was running and I heard the guiter sound.

    After that it just is not running. I tried almost all possible ways.

    1. Uninstalled & reinstalled the sound driver.
    2. Recompiled the alsa driver.
    Nothing seems to work.

    run(run from the command line)
    Code:
    alsaconf
    to configure your soundcard with alsa then run
    Code:
    alsamixer
    and unmute it.

    For alsaconf it is saying command not found.
    I think my ionstallation is totally bye-bye...

    And running alsamixer, it is saying Default Device not found.

    alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device
