No audio after installation

Postby emkuf » 2010-04-04 06:28

So I used the latest Debian Net Install I think its Lenny not sure. While installing I set the taskel to basic system no desktop environment after it asks to remove the disc I follow up with. apt-get install xorg xterm wdm fluxbox. Then I download Mplayer which works in the video category but has no sound.

Question that I want to know is how do I enable sound.

After varifying that alsa is installed check the mixer settings and un-mute things and turn the volume(s) up.

As you are running Lenny,have you tried running alsaconf as root?.
Give it a try and then as previously suggested check your volume levels by running alsamixer.

I too am suffering with no sound after the netinstall of testing. Everything else is perfect.

Now, I would greatly appreciated as what should I do to enable sound in:

1. Lenny netinstall

2. Testing netinstall.( Here since I can't do alsaconf)


and make my 4.1 speakers to work.
