    I have installed Ubuntu 5.10 in my PII 300, 128MB, 20 GB with creative vibra 128 sound card. There is no sound. I have tried loading emu10k1 and ca0106 in alsa with no sound. XMMS plays songs but without sound. Any suggestions? I am linux newbie (well almost).

    If XMMS plays without error, the module should be loaded up fine. Try unmuting the volume with

    Otherwise post the output of "lsmod | grep snd"

    I think support isn't compiled in the kernel, for breezy.. for creative vibra 128 sound card. He'll have to recompile the kernel.
    @ smuthy
    1. Download the kernel source for breezy via apt/synaptic.

    2. A symlink wud be created for the sources as /usr/src/linux.

    3. Do a
    $ cd /usr/src/linux
    $ sudo make menuconfig

    This should fire-up a ncurses based menu structure. Press [shift]+/(?) key to search.
    Search for the following terms,
    => creative vibra 128
    => ca0106
    => emu10k1
    For each result given, press M key to select the items as modules<M>. Make a note of the module names, this is extremely important! Select [Exit] and save the configuration when it asks to save.
    next, when you are at the shell,
    $ sudo make install && make modules_install
    Now copy over the bzimage
    $ sudo cp /usr/src/linux/bzimage /boot/ubuntu
    Now edit your /boot/grub/menu.lst and create a new boot entry on top as,
    $ sudo vi /boot/grub/menu.lst

    title Custom Kernel 2.6
    root (0,0)
    kernel /boot/ubuntu

    Now reboot your computer and boot into the new kernel. Now modprobe the the modules you noted before.
    $ sudo modprobe <modules>
    report if it works.. Best of Luck! :p

    I dont think You need to compile fresh kernel from source,since your sound modules are listed...Better try alsaconf and any small mistakes like muted volume etc..another good utillity is "modconf" try searching modules using this command
    @satish:Debian and Ubuntu got a better kernel compile system using make-kpkg to make kernel-image.deb or alsa-kernl-modules.deb etc..i've tried it long back..dont remember..but its easier for me than manual install..
