no sound

Link to this post 20 May 09

I can't get any sound at all on any linux distros (live or installed)
that I tried.
alsamixer and alsactl seem to be working
my
# cat /proc/asound/cards
outputs this
0 [Intel ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
HDA Intel at 0xdf300000 irq 11

Whenever I try listen to a sound file, the application
(amarok, k3b, ...) I use remain silent and
doesn't display an error message

I have an hp pavilion dv4-1199ef laptop (purchased
in March 2009).
I have no clue on what might be the reason for this
(alsa, kernel, ...?)

Are you sure that your sound card is working?

I had this exact same issue in Debian before. Remove your libesd0 and install libesd-ALSA0 instead. That solved it for me right away.

Luck.
