    No sound in Mandrake 10.1

    I just installed mandrake 10.1 and during the installation It said that My sound card wasn't configured. I went to configure manually (or something like that) and it asked me if it was an ISA sound card. I said no because it isn't, and it told me to try to configure it later. Well now it's later and I have no Idea on what to do. It's onboard sound. Any help would be appreciated greatly.

    Could you post hardware details? Motherboard , chipset....just the type of soundcard if you like.

    Run alsa-conf in a terminal.

    I ran the command but it said the command wasn't found. My motherboard is an Asus P5GD1-VM with Intel 915g and ICH6 chipsets. Sound chipset is Realtek ALC861.

    I installed all of them... It probably wasn't that you installed more desktops, but instead just that you re-installed Mandrake (which I have tried... 5 times).

    Well I got it to run alsaconf but it still doesn't detect my sound card. Should I try OSS instead of ALSA?
