sound not working

This post was updated on .
Hi could someone please give me a straightforward tutorial on how to get sound to work. I could find one on the web but I thought I would ask for one here specificaly for puredyne. I have unmuted all chanels witj alsa-mixer and ´speaker-test´ does not give any output.

here is my lsmod:

but I assume puredyne loads all modules by default. The tutorial on sound in the manual just told me to unmute all the channels and I did that but, no sound from speaker-test. I am sorry for asking a simple question but right now I can be bothered to follow some out of date tutorial that only half works on the web and work from there as I am too tired.

EDIT: After applying model=toshiba to an option in the alsa-base conf, I now have sound but I MIDI sound (through jack and rosegarden) crackles and pops. Any tips on how to get a crisp MIDI sound from jack and rosegarden using qsynth and fluid-soundfont-gm?

Thank you,

Re: [puredyne] sound not working

I noticed on the nabble board that you got sound working but have MIDI problems. Try decreasing the latency in Jack. You need to go into options and change the buffer size i think.  I usually change mine to try and get down around 5.6 ms or so.  Not sure if it is necessary, but that generally helped with the pops and clicks with midi playback.

Re: [puredyne] sound not working

Sorry I got it all working perfectly. I found that I had oss selected instead of alsa by accident in jack. The reason I didn't post back is that literaly 5 minutes after, tvertical lines appeared all down my screen so I just held the power button. I thought X had locked down or something but now it won't boot past the BIOS and the lines are still present I think my actual laptop monitor has gone bust. Realy annoying but all I get after 'TOSHIBA in touch with tommorow' is what looks like commas all over the screen. I came to the conclusion that my laptop is borked and I am posting this from a school, ms 200 computer. I can deal with software problems but when hardware goes I haven't realy got a clue and if I can't even get past some toshiba sign then I am lost.
