Hiya Thanks - a little messing around, and some very helpful information from Sergey and Danny have got my sound card recognised. Only small problem is that hissing sound that you get from"cat /dev/urandom>/dev/dsp" is all I can get (at least it's a sound :~))when running xmms, kaboodle, or just the system sounds in control panel. I unplugged the speakers (Double checking just in case)and when I tried to run xmms, it said that my sound card was configured properly and was working fine (just my luck to install a tone deaf xmms version LOL)but it was plugged into the wrong outlet - so I put it back, and get the hissing back. Any idea what is going on ? The system tells me I have it right, but I don't :/
