    things to check when ALSA won't work:

    1.) ensure user is in "audio" group
    2.) use alsamixer to unmute output and turn volume up. hit 'm' on the bars with "MM" on them. this means they are muted.
    3.) run this command as root:
    $ alsactl store
    4.) try to play some music. it should work, but if not, try these commands:
    $/etc/init.d/alsa stop
    $rm /var/lib/alsa/asound
    $/etc/init.d/alsa start

    Code:
    bash-3.00# /etc/init.d/alsa stop
    bash: /etc/init.d/alsa: No such file or directory

    woops. the directory is actually /etc/rc.d instad of /etc/init.d. its probably goign to be /etc/rc.d/rc.alsa. that part I copied and pasted from somewhere else, so forget about that. It was a bad suggestion

    Google is your friend. usermod is the command you need. a good reference for linux commands is http://www.linuxdevcenter.com/linux/cmd/

    people REALLY need to read the slackbook

    www.slackbook.org

    all of this is covered.

    K. My new slack install is working pretty well (except dhcpcd wont respond ).

    Now, I ran 'alsamixer' and 'alsactl store', and I can play sound for about a second on xmms. I opened a song in /mnt/windows and it played, then stopped (for one second).

    I'll try everything else when I get back home.

    Hm. I doubt it. I acutally think I killed slack, my mouseconfig wont work and the CLI has big text again (I attempted to recompile my kenel)

    I'll reinstall and try that when I get home
