Well, i decided to go and upgrade for kubuntu 8.4b from 7.10.
Everything else seems normal, except that i get no sound.
Kmixer ain't able to find a mixer, and alsa gives function snd_ctl_open
Also, there is no /dev/mixer or /dev/snd directories.
Some sound and soundcard info:
>modinfo soundcore
filename:       /lib/modules/2.6.24-12-386/kernel/sound/soundcore.ko
alias:          char-major-14-*
license:        GPL
author:         Alan Cox
description:    Core sound module
srcversion:     548AA54AF08207316C104F8
vermagic:       2.6.24-12-386 mod_unload 486
>lscpi | grep audio
00:05.0 Multimedia audio controller: nVidia Corporation nForce Audio
Processing Unit (rev a2)
00:06.0 Multimedia audio controller: nVidia Corporation nForce2 AC97 Audio
Controler (MCP) (rev a1)

I really don't have a clue on how to fix this, if someone can give me a
light a would appreciate it.
