    Due to past misconnunications I have to ask, is there no sound coming from any app in the Operating System or is only a single application effected?

    Also what make/model of a sound card are you using on your system?
  • i'am using mandriva 2010 the sound is not working for all the application. i check on the driver it is snd_hda_intel but my laptop is ATI what should i do

    the intel sound type is the default value for realtek onboard audio. It sounds like your system may not know what sound card to use. Since you have disabled pulse, then I beleive it should default back to using alsa, you can configure the audio card for also by running "sudo alsaconf" in the terminal, and you can midify and check the mixer settings by running "alsamixer".

    I am a Slackware user and these are the controlling commands for alsa based off of the orignal application and in slackware, hopefully mandriva didn't remove those apps from their distribution. Please let me know if these commands are not present, if they are not then I will install mandriva to test it on my system.
  • What model laptop are you using? I can't find it.

    If your drivers aren't working, open the Terminal an type
    lspci

    and paste it. This command is very useful as it gives an output for all devices in the system. It will give us a good idea what to install for which device.

    Here is a report back.

    It appears that the sound problem in ubuntu 9.10 is pretty widespread and is a problem cause by the move to pusleaudio.

    I have detailed some information in the post at http://www.linux.com/community/forums?func=view&catid=8&id=3653 which might help, please try the script I referred to and tell me in it helps.

    You should look if your card is installed under ALSA, the pulse audio daemon uses alsa as the sink for the sound.

    With the following command you can retrieve the information of your card:
    cat /proc/asound/cards
    

    If your card is installed under ALSA, you should see the name of your card and a number assigned to it.
    0 [NVidia         ]: HDA-Intel - HDA NVidia
                          HDA NVidia at 0xf4480000 irq 18
    

    if it's there you can look at the sound levels with this command
    alsamixer -c
    
    "number of your card"
