all right first could you please tell us what your sound card is onboard if so mobo type etc.

 

secondly when i used mandrake 10.0 official and community i had the same problem on my computer no sound for anything, cds i never cracked that one for any version

 

but heres what i did mandrake has kde set as the default desktop manager um i just switched to gnome and i had sound went back to kde no sound i dont know why so try that if that doesnt help which i doubt it will post your card and we can go from there

I had the same issue with my Audigy. Everything was set up correctly (kernel) and alsa and its tools were working. After I played around I found that the digital outputs were enabled.

 

If the soundcard has digital output, ensure that this option is disabled.

Do you get sound when you log in as root? if so it may be permissions this is a common problem on some distros.

 

Login to the desktop of your choice as root and try to play an MP3 if that works then you may need to add yourself to the audio group.

 

adduser yourname audio

 

to verify

 

groups yourname

 

you should see something like this..

[10/09/04][greg@otis:~]$ groups greg

greg : greg disk lp cdrom audio src video users

 

if that doesn't work then

 

cd /dev

ls -l dsp*

 

you should see that all things dsp are owned by root and group is audio.

 

something like this...

crw-rw---- 1 root audio 14, 3 Jun 30 12:17 /dev/dsp

crw-rw---- 1 root audio 14, 19 Jun 30 12:17 /dev/dsp1

crw-rw---- 1 root audio 14, 35 Jun 30 12:17 /dev/dsp2

crw-rw---- 1 root audio 14, 51 Jun 30 12:17 /dev/dsp3

 

if not then do this

chgrp audio dsp*

chmod 660 dsp*

 

that should do it assuming it's a permissions issue wink

 

Good luck and don't leave us hanging. It's nice to see resolved issues.
