Hi,

   Try to unmute all your sound channels with amixer. you can type something like this :

amixer set PCM 100 unmute

   You have to do it for all the group that you have. You can see all the group that you have when you type amixer without arguments.

   When you are satisfied with your settings, you can save them with "alsactl store". You have to restore your settings each time you boot your system and to do that you can add "alsactl restore" in one of your init script e.g. rc.local.


Hope this help.


Bye.

You cannot delete a question once comments have been entered.  For that you need our help.  But since you also provided the solution you yourself found, I will move this to the PAQ database to close it, since it "may" help someone else in the future.

Your 100 points have been refunded to you.  Please update and finalize your other questions.
