    Here's what I've found thus far:

    Assuming it's a tcp port (versus udp):

    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 27015

    man iptables for more info.

    i HAD sound but after an update its gone. i have ALSA for everything why did it go?
    I really hate it when something like this happens.

    Okay, I'll need to round up some information. Please post the output of:

    lspci | grep audio

    lsmod
    (the list is long, please wrap in "code" tags)

    Also, just take a look at the output of dmesg | less and see if there's anything that jumps out at you for a reason (we might be able to grep something once we know what module is supposed to be loading).

    You have gone to system->preferences-> sound and verified that everything is set correctly in there?

    I forgot to mention that iptables doesn't give any feedback unless there's a problem. Sorry.

    As for the sound, Relevent entries:
    Code:
    snd_ac97_codec 133080 1 snd_atiixp
    ac97_bus 10368 1 snd_ac97_codec

    snd_mixer_oss 25088 1 snd_pcm_oss
    snd_pcm 99208 3 snd_atiixp,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm_oss
    snd 79432 16 snd_atiixp,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_os s,snd_pcm,snd_seq_oss,snd_rawmidi,snd_seq,snd_time
    try dmesg | grep -i ac97 and dmesg | grep AC'97

    Meanwhile, I'll search for known issues.
    Edit:
    *Sigh* The problem has been reported... not seeing a fix yet. Still looking.

    This might work. I found a rather involved dialog on this problem that ended in sucess: 8.10: SiS AC'97 soundcard no longer detected - Linux Archive

    The very last entry provided information that proved resolve that user's similar issue, the advice as follows:
    You can pretty easily regain sound in your installed Ubuntu Intrepid by
    reinstalling the linux-generic package, ensuring that the latest
    available Intrepid kernel is installed, and afterward, rebooting. At
    this writing ( 11-28-2008 ), you'll need at least linux-image-2.6.27-9-generic from
    intrepid-security installed.
    -Emphasis added.

    If you need help with following the instructions, just write right back.

    is thwere liek a guide i dont know about on commands? lol how can u figure out
    "dmesg | grep -i ac97" witrhout actually programming the software lol
    1) There are lots of guides. Google is your friend!
    2) Experience and a lot of reading.
