    Still no sound


    I've been through most of the threads in here about no sound and I still can't figure out why I can't get this working.

    I'm using the onboard sound from an ASUS MB. I downloaded Realtek drivers for Linux and I think I got them installed correctly.

    This is starting to make me crazy. Any one have any other suggestions?

    Thanks

    When you run alsamixer, do you see your device there? Can you configure it running the sound utility in your menu?

    I'm not sure what you mean. I am using the sound from the motherboard. I ran alsamixer and this is what I got.

    Card: VIA 8237 │
    │ Chip: Analog Devices AD1888 │
    │ View: [Playback] Capture All │
    │ Item: Master [dB gain=0.00, 0.00]
    And I'm not sure what sound utility you are referring to.

    How did you install these provided drivers? Did you read the readme or install file that comes along with most software? What is the output of "lsmod" and "lspci"?

    I didn't install anything that I'm aware of.

    You want the the list of everything from "lsmod" and "lspci" when I put that into a terminal? There's a lot of info there.

    You could omit the parts you know are irrelevant, or put the output in code tags, or upload it to pastebin.. Choice is yours

    Since I don't know anything, much less what is irrelevant, I'll give you everything I got.

    Thanks for the help BTW.

    By the looks of it, all the correct drivers (or modules as they are called in Linux) are loaded.

    as root (su -) typing in "cat /dev/urandom > /dev/dsp", does it produce a noice? (Close by Ctrl-C)
