    ALSA.... mixer says no mixer elems found / alsaconf works / atiixp


    Ok. I have posted this elsewhere but no help. I currently am using Auditor installed on my hard drive, and am having problems getting my sound card working. I have the Toshiba Satellite A70/75 series that has the ATI Tech. IXP150 audio chipset. I finally got the kernel compiled with the drivers and ALSACONF finds the card and supposedly updates it and turns the volume up. NO SOUND! I installed the kde multimedia pack to get the kmix mixer but it shows no selection for a mixer. Also, alsamixer returns, "no mixer elems found". What am I missing??

    SUCCESS!!!!

    the apt-get alsa-base, alsa-headers, and alsa-utils fixed my issue.

    Must of had some outdated alsa stuff in the kernel.
