    Check to see if its muted, check to see if the driver is loaded.

    launch alsamixer and push the volume up, just scroll various pages with tab key...then run "alsactl store" to save settings.

    I have this problem too.

    I tried alsaconfig but it says "No supported PnP or PCI card found" after searchin for sound cards."

    I have a Realtek HD sound chip on my Asus P5Q mainboard.
    Realtek and Asus both are providing the alsa drivers - but they're not working on my BT3 installation.

    Is there no other way to solve the problem than re-compiling the kernel?

    Well I would say no but I went to the bt kernel to check it for you however it doesnt seem to be in the config which is odd. Here is my normal gentoo box ....

    purehate@pwnsauce ~ $ cat /usr/src/linux/.config | grep REALTEK
    CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_REALTEK=y
    purehate@pwnsauce ~ $

    As you can see the codec is built in however here is my BT box and it doesnt even seem to be in the config which is odd

    purehate@pwnsauce ~ $ ssh root@192.168.2.26

    backtrack3 ~ # cat /usr/src/linux/.config | grep REALTEK
    backtrack3 ~ #
