    No sound.


    Hey. I'm using Slackware 10.2 and KDE, but for some reason I'm getting no sound. I'm just using typical headphones that you plug into the headphone jack. What do you guys think might be wrong, and what do you suggest I do?

    open up a terminal and type

    Code:
    su - root 
    (enter your root password)
    alsaconf
    it might detect and load the drivers for your sound card.. after that
    Code:
    alsamixer
    (set the volumes accordingly and unmute any you might find muted)
    (finally, to store the settings)
    alsactl store
    if you dont have luck this method, you can use
    Code:
    lspci -vv
    to find out your sound card, then load the correct driver manually.
