First thing to do: Run valsaconf as root.

Did it detect a sound card?

If it still doesn't work, try opening alsamixer and make sure the channels aren't muted. You select audio channels with arrow keys, and if they're muted you'll see two big M's at the bottom. Press 'M' to toggle the muted state.

If you have two sound cards (may be one on-board another one on slot), try to disable the on-board sound card by adjusting the bios settings.

Then , as root , run the following commands:

alsaconf      (to configure your sound card)
alsamixer   (after adjusting the volume level pre "Esc" to quit)
alsactl store (to store the mixer sound level)

Let us see what ahppens.

Small & useful tip to get a list of playback hardware devices, in a Terminal run (root or user, it's the same):
Code:
aplay -l
It will show something if the hardware is recognized and the modules loaded.
If not, check the specifications of the (PCI, ISA or Onboard-) souncard and try to get the name of the chipset in the Web, to know which module to load.
Good luck.

It looks like you have modules loaded OK for that card. Go back to "hanumizzle's" second post to you. Puta music CD in your CDROM drive. Open up xmms and play the CD. Open alsamixer in a terminal and adjust sliders up and unmute all stuff until you get sound.

FiredudeChad, I have the same card in another computer (laptop). On VL SOHO I didn't get any sound either. On my box it was a "problem" with the mixer settings.Try playing some sound, open kmix, go to the "switches" tab and enable the "External Amplifier" switch.

Hope it works for you.

Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.
