Re: update killed my sound AGAIN!!!

Re 'Package linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.32-40-generic not available', I have
been informed that this package is no longer required or provided: the informer
has updated the Ubuntu Sound Troubleshooting webpage:

However, alsamixer (as instructed to use on this webpage) does not work
john@JohnDesktop:~$ alsamixer
cannot load mixer controls: Invalid argument

I have also tried Gnome alsamixer & AlsaMixerGUI with the following results:

Gnome Alsamixer gave:
john@JohnDesktop:~$ gnome-alsamixer

(gnome-alsamixer:4407): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_type_instance_get_private:
assertion `instance != NULL && instance->g_class != NULL' failed

(gnome-alsamixer:4407): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_type_instance_get_private:
assertion `instance != NULL && instance->g_class != NULL' failed
Segmentation fault

AlsaMixerGUI gave a popup displaying:"Function snd_mixer_load filed: invalid

PS this is documented in Launchpad Ubuntu bug 971014 & question 192344.
