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
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?
