For some reason, my sound doesn't work on my new machine with its

jessie) and it works fine here on Windoze(I use youtube to play old

can't find alsa to install, and pulsesudio is already installed.
Any and all suggestions/fixes appreciated. Please spare the
imprecations and chastisements!
I was having a similar problem just last week after an update>safe upgrade..
After scratching my head for several days and trying everything I could
think of (including querying this list), I found I had something called
PulseAudio-volume-control installed, a graphical tool to manage volume
for PA , and, when I found it, it showed "analog output" as muted (no
idea why), I unmuted it, and had my sound back!
If you can't find it, install it and check all the volume settings.
It's listed in the repos as pavucontrol.
so just apt-get install pavucontrol .
(or aptitude if you prefer)
aptitude install pavucontrol
Could I first suggest that you get hold of a recent version of
Knoppix? Not just to solve this problem, but you seem to be at a point
where you need a variety of help. It takes forever to boot up, but it's
worth waiting for.
Joe we are not doing advertisements for this or that distro. Either provide
an answer or do nothing please ...
