After this I attempted to play a wav file using totem-xine. This sort of
played, but very patchy. I then tried audacity but could get no sound at
all. after this I could not get any sound of any kind. No sound from the
gdm login screen, or from the gnome desktop, or from any sound
application at all, however I launched it.
I tested the es1371 soundcard by booting up an old installation of
Debian 2.2 potato. The soundcard worked fine and everything was fine in
Booting back into Breezy I checked that the alsa server was running. I
ran a sound test on it, which apparently ran, but produced no sound.
Everything I have checked appears to be correctly setup, but just no
sound comes out of the speakers unless I boot into the old potato
I am totally mystified for the first time in a decade of using Debian
Can anyone help?
