Hi Everyone 

Seems that quite a few people are having sound probs ! 

I am about to join in here - I also cannot get my sound card to
operate.I have a P2 with a 20 gig Hdd and 128Mb RAM - the machine has
onboard sound so I tried all the options - PNP BIOS, pcm, anything
generic, and the sound pro config (as thats what the bios indicated it
was) from the handbook, no good,(I did reconfig the kernel each time as
well) so I disabled the onboard sound and installed a sound card - no
idea of brand, it came from a dead computer but I knew it was working be
fore the motherboard fell over. Main problem is my system recognises 2
video cards (as it did before I disabled the onboard sound) and the new
sound card is not recognised (as far  as I can see)

pcm0: <Ess 1868 DSP> at io 0x220 irq 5 drq 1:0 bufsz 4096 (1p/1r/0v
channels duplex) 

(isn't this saying that it is working ?)

Output of grep pcm /var/run/demsg.boot 

pcm0: <ESS 18xx DSP> on sbc0 

(doesn't this also indicate sound is happening ?)

I get no errors when I try to play an MP3 through xmms, problem is I get
no sound either. The error message saying my sound card isn't configured
when I start kde has gone away as well

Which as you can see shows two video cards and no sound card. Heck, I
dunno, I'm willing to try anything now. All help, helpful or not will be
