I got and ran 'sndconfig' as you suggested, it finished
without any errors but I must still be missing/not understanding
something; during shutdown a message scrolls up saying: Starting ALSA
sound driver (version none): modprobe: can't locate module snd failed.
When I retry sndconfig I get the following:
ERROR: No Sound Modules found
You don't seem to be running a kernel with modular
sound enabled. (soundcore.o was not found in the
module search path).
To use sndconfig, you must be running a kernel with
modular sound, such as the kernel shipped with Red Hat
Linux or a 2.2 or greater kernel.
Looked up the following:
skiffworks:/home/bill# uname -r
also did this:
skiffworks:/usr/src# dpkg -l kernel-image-2.2.20-idepci
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err:
||/ Name Version Description
un kernel-image-2 <none> (no description available)
I have been trying since July 28th., when I first installed Debian to
get sound running; It seems a long way off but I think I would like to
bring my PC to the meeting the 2nd weekend of December and elicit your
help if I may. I've become quite discouraged over this, I would like to
move on to other things, there's much to do and learn but I'm bogged
Nor can I remember how you did the sound test on your lap top, I
neglected to note it down.
Thanks for any help/advice that may come my way.
