No sound in LMDE, how should I start debugging?

Hi all,

I've just installed LMDE on one of our old systems, and when it boots up all we get is a "Beep" sound. There is no sound at all, and no speaker icon displayed in the taskbar also.

Re: Does auto login for mdm work on LMDE?

I just went back to GDM and modified its /etc/gdm/gdm.conf. But MDM is the default, and somehow GDM3 doesn't install on my install (apt-get breaks at some point with some error), so I will stick with MDM for it is the safest. I've actually managed to find a workaround to have a Timed Login with the...

Re: Does auto login for mdm work on LMDE?
