sound on slack10.1
after sorting the problem about KDE i found myself struggling to get my sound back - everything happened when i decided to upgrade to slack10.1 from slack10 (where the sound was just perfect) - now as i try to set the sound with alsamixer an error apeear saying: No mixer elems found - then i tried with Kmix and had the same response - what's going on? how do i get sound on slack10.1?
thanx for any suggestion
If you get on the wrong train all the stations you will come to will be the wrong stations.

Specify the sound hardware and the output of lsmod. There could be a soundmodem driver in the way.I\'m so tired .....

hello again, sorry for not showing up lately but been really busy with finals at UNI - anyway i tried 'alsaconf' and it seemed to be configuring the sound card in the system but after ... nothing - when I try to execute 'alsamixer' it says 'no mixer elems found'
then i tried 'lsmod' and this is the output:

I had this problem when I first loaded Slack 10.1, my first venture into Slack.
First of all I was getting no sounds at all so I ran "alsaconf" and then got the same "no mixer elems" error that you did.
I then simply fired up "noatun" and loaded in a list of mp3's and hit play. Sound then worked. After that, "alsamixer" fired up without problems at all.
Not a very technical solution I know but worth a try if you haven't already.

then if you upgrade to the 2.6 kernel that fixed the sound for me.
also try modprobe snd-intel8x0Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.
