    Sound? What Sound? No Sound!


    On this end I have Slackware v13 and a HP G71 laptop.

    Using Window$ (which came with the laptop) I have sound but not with the installed Slackware v13.

    To get sound, as I understand it, the following needs to be done ...

    .1. <root> type in .... alsaconf
    .2. <usr> type in .... alsamixer
    .3. <usr> type/use MM.mm, which in turn changes settings to "OO" indicating that the channels are now active.
    .4. <usr> press Escape
    .5. <root> type in ... alsactl store
    .6. reboot

    After rebooting it is noted that after re-booting the machine confirms the settings just described above are in effect but after starting "x" - still - no sound.
    Having done this several times now, making sure I didn't miss a step and still no sound, I ask you, what else has to be done?

    and look for any lines that have anything to do with audio. post those lines here.

    Tried to run "lspci" - doesn't work! Also tried "ls pci" and that doesn't work either.

    Howevever I did copy the boot up display and anything to do with PCI is shown below.
    For now it doesn't make much sense to me. You?

    Howdy jay. I run inxi in my installs now. Even in Puppy it works.

    Only takes a second to install and gives out a bunch of info. Not trying to butt in really. Just didn't know if anybody was aware of it is all.

    To make this post easy. As root

    Code:
    cd /usr/local/bin && wget -Nc smxi.org/inxi && chmod +x inxi
    warning: this command won't work in Pardus or Arch Linux. I have this in Ubuntu, Puppy,AntiX, It should work in Slackware also.

    After installing just type in

    Code:
    inxi -F
    and for options just type in

    Code:
    inxi  -help

    inxi supports the following options. You can combine them, or list them
    one by one: Examples: inxi -v4 -c6 OR inxi -dDc 6
    
    If you start inxi with no arguments, it will show the short form.
    The following options if used without -d or -v will show just that complete line:
    A,C,D,G,I,N,P,S - you can use these together to show just the lines you want to see.
    If you use them with a -v level (or -d), it will show the full output for that line 
    along with the output for the chosen verbosity level.
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Output Control Options:
    -A  Show Audio/sound card information.
    -c  Available color schemes. Scheme number is required.
        Supported schemes: 0-15 Example: inxi -c 11
    -C  Show full CPU output, including per CPU clockspeed.
    -d  Default output verbosity level, same as: inxi -v 1
    -D  Show full hard Disk info, not only model, ie: /dev/sda ST380817AS 80.0GB.
    -f  Show all cpu flags used, not just the short list. Not shown with -F to avoid spamming.
    -F  Show Full output for inxi. Does not show extra verbose options like -f -u -l -o -p or -t
    -G  Show Graphic card information (card, x type, resolution, glx renderer, version).
    -i  Show Wan IP address, and shows local interfaces (requires ifconfig network tool).
        Not shown with -F for user security reasons, you shouldn't paste your local/wan IP.
    -I  Show Information: processes, uptime, memory, irc client, inxi version.
    -l  Show partition labels. Default: short partition -P. For full -p output, use: -pl (or -plu).
    -N  Show Network card information.
    -o  Show unmounted partition information (includes UUID and LABEL if available).
        Shows file system type if you have file installed, if you are root OR if you have
        added to /etc/sudoers (sudo v. 1.7 or newer): <username> ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/file (sample)
    -p  Show full partition information (-P plus all other detected partitions).
    -P  Show Partition information (shows what -v 4 would show, but without extra data).
        Shows, if detected: / /boot /home /tmp /usr /var. Use -p to see all mounted partitions.
    -r  Show distro repository data. Currently supported repo types: APT; PACMAN; PISI; YUM.
    -s  Show sensors output (if sensors installed/configured): mobo/cpu/gpu temp; detected fan speeds.
        Gpu temp only for Fglrx/Nvidia drivers. Nvidia shows screen number for > 1 screens.
    -S  Show System information: host name, kernel, distro
    -t  Show processes. Requires extra options: c (cpu) m (memory) cm (cpu+memory). If followed by numbers 1-20,
        shows that number of processes for each type (default: 5; if in irc, max: 5): -t cm10
        Make sure to have no space between letters and numbers (-t cm10 -right, -t cm 10 -wrong).
    -u  Show partition UUIDs. Default: short partition -P. For full -p output, use: -pu (or -plu).
    -v  Script verbosity levels. Verbosity level number is required.
        Supported levels: 0-5 Example: inxi -v 4
        0 - short output, same as: inxi
        1 - basic verbose, same as: inxi -d
        2 - Also show networking card data
        3 - Also show hard disk names as detected.
        4 - Also show partition size/filled data for (if present):/, /home, /var/, /boot
        5 - For multicore systems, also shows: per core clock speeds; audio card; full disk data.
    -x  Show extra data: bogomips on Cpu; driver version (if available) for Network/Audio;
        for network, audio cards, shows PCI Bus ID number also;
        direct rendering status for Graphics (in X). Only works with verbose or line output;
        shows (for single gpu, nvidia driver) screen number gpu is running on.
        Shows hdd temp with disk data if you have hddtemp installed, if you are root OR if you have
        added to /etc/sudoers (sudo v. 1.7 or newer): <username> ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/hddtemp (sample)
        For -t, adds memory use output to cpu (-tx c, and cpu use to memory (-tx m).
    
    Additional Options:
    -h - this help menu.
    -U  Auto-update script. Note: if you installed as root, you
        must be root to update, otherwise user is fine.
    -V  inxi version information. Prints information then exits.
    -%  Overrides defective or corrupted data.
    -@  Triggers debugger output. Requires debugging level 1-10 (8-10 - logging).
        8 - basic logging; 9 - full file/sys info logging; 10 - color logging.

    Sure does!
    Tells me it sees your sound chip:
    00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)
    Now try this one:
    Code:
    /sbin/lsmod
    We'll see if you have any sound drivers loaded and running.
