    Default Intel sound problem was sorted but no mixer

    i dont know if this is the right thread

    i am running bt3 with kernel 2.6.21.5 although the sound didnt work to start with i downloaded a .lzm file from

    hxxp://download.airdump.net/data/backtrack/modules/

    its the intel sound
    now i ran lzm2dir filename /

    then restarted. everything worked fine sound works great etc but after a few reboots i notice that sound doesn't work. at the bottom of the screen where the kmixer should be it looks like its muted so i double click but it now says there is no mixer

    any ideas what the problem could be

    i could just reinstall the module all the time i reboot but it gets a wee bit tiresome

    any help appreciated

    Does the problem happen with root user?
    If it only occurrs when you're using non-root user, then just give that user the permission to access audio hardware by add this user to group audio.

    Hi there, I had the same problem.
    Edit the /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf and add this:

    alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
    alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
    options snd-hda-intel model=3stack

    After that if you add a new user in the users group edit the /etc/group and search for audio you must have something like this:

    audio::17:users

    Reboot and you should be all done
