Your sound maybe muted. Open a terminal
and type: alsamixer

Then use the up and down arrows to adjust and use m to unmute.

Also, I think that snd-intel8x0 module is blacklisted. First check alsamixer as bigpaws wrote and then with lsmod command check if that module is loaded.

Erik: put a music CD in your CDROM drive, launch xmms to play the CD, launch "alsmixer" in a terminal and play with the controls until you get sound.

Dear Folks,

I reread the howto. I remade the following operation:

Find out what module is being used for your soundcards:
Code:

cat /proc/asound/modules


On my computer this could give
Code:

0 snd_usb_audio
1 snd_es1968

This means that the card that's currently the
default soundcard (card 0) uses the snd_usb_audio module.

Was giving the comman:
snd_intel8x0

It worked.
