    no sound (please, help...)


    I installed Ubuntu linux 5.04 on my desktop, and I have no sound. I have an on-board sound card and also a SounBlaster Live 5.1.

    root@edgeworth:~ # cat /proc/asound/cards
    0 [ICH5 ]: ICH4 - Intel ICH5
    Intel ICH5 with AD1985 at 0xfebff800, irq 17
    1 [Live ]: EMU10K1 - Sound Blaster Live!
    Sound Blaster Live! (rev.10) at 0xb400, irq 19

    I followed the instructions in

    http://ubuntuguide.org/#configuresoundproperly

    But that did not help...

    Tips are extremely welcome. Thanks.

    Do you use OSS or ALSA?

    Is sound volume up?

    Initially I was using OSS (I think), which is used by default. I tried the suggestion in the link above, which made me use ALSA. But still no sound in both soundcards. I am using GNOME. I did toy around with alsamixer, but... no sound still. Hints are extremely welcome.
