    Question No audio:x:29:

    Hello all, I have been looking through a lot of forum posts and found:
    Back track 4 No sound !! - Remote Exploit Forums

    They recommended doing:

    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/group

    then search for this line:
    Code:
    audio:x:29:

    and add your login after that line:
    Code:
    audio:x:29:kamachi

    And reboot pc

    I was in the process of doing this, and I don't have audio:x:29: in there. I think I might have missed a step. Any ideas?

    I downloaded alsa-driver-1.0.23.tar
    Unzipped it into a folder called sound2
    and tried to run the ./configure and that didn't work.
    I was following the directions on the site I posted at the top of this post.

    The audio is not muted, I do have the little speaker in my system tray.

    It might be a good idea to first determine if your sound card is recognized by the kernel.
    Then move forward.

    I have been doing a lot of searching, and there are 3 different ways I have found to install ALSA. I have looked at:
    ALSA wiki
    tldp.org/HOWTO/Alsa-sound-4.html
    and
    Here at backtrack

    Yes my card is one of the options on there web site.
    Matrix:Module-hda-intel
    Matrix:Module-hda-intel - AlsaProject

    My card is supported.

    I didn't ask you to search. I asked you to determine if your sound card is recognized by the kernel. If it is then you may not need a driver.
    Here follow this guide. Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide - Ubuntu Forums
    It will walk you through the basics of checking for a card and then adding a driver if needed.
    However you should not need a driver.

    That worked, Thank You Archangel-Amael. I had to purge:
    sudo apt-get --purge remove linux-sound-base alsa-base alsa-utils
    and then reinstall:
    sudo apt-get install linux-sound-base alsa-base alsa-utils
    and it works ok now. The volume control has some static that runs through it but it works. Woohoo

    Thanks again

    Kermit
