|Broken sound seems to bit a bit of a theme with DSL. Mine was broken too, here's how I fixed it.|
The main idea is to install sndconfig and then run that to configure your sound - I think it was about an extra 10-15megs of downloads by the time I was done.
so first get dpkg working with (stole this from cbaggers script, thx for that)
then install synaptic ( not strictly necessary I think)
sudo apt-get install synaptic
Then install sndconfig with synaptic (a dpkg gui frontend); pretty straight forward
run sndconfig to get the settings for your sound card - you should know your chip set before you run this
finally run update-modules to "set" the files that sndconfig generates
Worked for me and my Toshiba 320cdt , your mileage may vary
Thanks for the post. This helped me get the sound workng on my HP OB 2000. The only difference is that I did not have to download synaptic to get sndconfig.
I just used # apt-get install sndconfig.
