No Sound solved

Postby barkhat » Sun Feb 01, 2009 12:00 am

For some reason I have no sound. I have Linux Mint 6 (dual boot with Vista). Mostly things are working very well but I have no sound. I ran the lspci command that I saw suggested elsewhere and I got the following:

You have ICH8 sound
This (somewhat old) solution is still very useful (not only for capture)

Of course you use model="whateveryouhave" or =auto
Note the link to the major sound thread in Ubuntuforums

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
