    ALSA is not working


    I have updated my kernel 2.4.29 => 2.6.11.8 . i have downloaded the most recent releases from alsa-project.org. 'alsaconf' works fine, it finds my sound card, i select it. In the end of configuration it tells: "Now ALSA is ready to use. For adjustment of volumes, use your favorite mixer. Have a lot of fun!". I want to use 'alsamixer', but it does not work : "alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such file or directory" i try to launch 'alsactl' but it tells me: No soundcards found.

    I can't stand alsamixer myself, try aumix and see if that works for you, if not post back here and see what else we can do.

    I was afraid you would say that..

    whoah whoah, this may sound stupid but let me ask you: Did you reboot after installing the new kernel?

    Possibly.. edit the kernel and make sure under Device Drivers you have everything for your card, also make sure you make them modules, do not put them directly into the kernel - it will not work.
