Did you check analog vs digital sources?
My sound is not working, even though pulse audio shows it as actively working....and using the slider has no effect. It just goes back to the mute state....help.
Thanks in advance!!!
Any more ideas?????
You'll need to tell us a little more about your problem for us to help (I suck at 20 questions). Here's some commands whose output would be useful:
lspci -v | grep audio
Also run alsamixer (if installed, don't remember if it is)
also make sure you've got speakers plugged into the right port and that the speakers are on/powered. I know it sounds stupid, but I've been bitten more than once by the simple things .

i had this issue when i installed the equalizer. one thing you need to check is that there is an audio server up and running.
one thing I've noticed [and not solved yet] occasionally when I boot pulse only loads a "virtual" output device [in the pulse device manager] the "VU meter" shows that there is sound going to it but of course there's no output.
but after a reboot the physical output device is back and sound returns!
not sure if that's what you're seeing. but its one more thing to check

So what did alsamixer reveal (if installed)?
You are right about that. Common sense tells you to make sure speakers are hooked up. How do you think I discovered I had no more sound in the first place. Worked fine before. Why is it so hard to get everything working at the same time in Linux? No wonder Microsoft is so laxed and doesn't feel threatened by Linux...they know most people don't have the time to be tinkering with the OS forever cause they got work to do, and would rather pay for the convenience of a working OS. Sure you may have to install drivers, but when you do rarely do they affect other stuff thats already working. I have re-installed windows on several machines, and always was back up and running with all my programs re-installed by the end of the day with no problems. I have installed several Linux flavors on several machines, and not one of them has ever been completely running problem free. Heck, I've been working on this install for at least 4 months, and even though I'm close, I have yet to get everything working correctly at the same time. I get one thing that was broke fixed, then something that wasn't breaks. Aggravating!!!! Seems like I will never get this thing in the car cause I just can't make it off the bench problem free.
Excuse me for ranting, but I'm really just getting tired of fooling with Linux...Maybe I should stick to what I know works...ya know!!!!
The only reason I want a Linux system in the car is cause I don't want to have to deal with viruses, plus anti-virus software sucks up a lot of resources(which is limited on the car PC, which is nowhere as powerful as my desktop). If not for that, I would never even considered a Linux system. All "Windows" in the house(and we have 7 PC's), all maintained by me...all running excellent!
