Sound not working on Mandriva + Toshiba Laptop
Posted 20 June 2005 - 10:22 PM
I am a complete newbie to Linux, I have literally just finished installing it on my laptop, most things are up and running but I have no sound and don't know where to get a driver etc from or how to install it!! I have a "Linux for Dummies" book that i'm working my way through but I wondered if anyone could tell me how2 ??
I have installed Mandriva, the system is a Toshiba Equium A60.

open a terminal
sudo kwrite /etc/modules
when the document opens, add snd-sbawe to it
save it, close it and reboot
When I did this the mixer was available in KDE and I just had to adjust the levels.

What model is it that you have? Is it a P10-S429?
This guide may help.
Often, the sound is muted and needs to be set unchecked for mute.

Did you try the solution noted on the linked page? Especially look and see if the sound settings are muted, or the sound is not turned up all the way for each channel.
The modem will most likely be a challenge. It is a "win-modem" designed to work with Windowes and it will need some special work to get it going. If you like all the technical jargon, take a look at this users experience.
