    [sorry if this post is a bit long... I really don't know what specific
    lines I'm supposed to be pulling information from for some of this)
    Good morning. I just installed Ubuntu (Hoary Hedgehoge)or the first
    time (virus problems drove me from windows). Everything works great
    except that I can't get the sound to work.

    I posted on the hoary boards a day ago but there haven't been any
    responces yet (I hope this doesn't mean there isn't a solution...)

    The sound card is CMI9880L from CMedia; its part of the MSI 915P/G Neo
    2 Platinum Mboard). However the Alsa page
    ( doesn't seem
    to refer to this chipset anywhere. Does that mean that the chipset
    isn't Alsa?
    (Can anyone explain what the difference is?)

    aplay -l returns
    aplay: device_list:200: no soundcards found...

    The following is the output of the general hoary sound debug instrux
    (except that " lsmod | grep snd" doesn't seem to return any info)
    graf@Grafnet:~$ lspci
    0000:00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corp. 915G/P/GV Processor to I/O
    Controller (rev 04)
    0000:00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corp. 915G/P/GV PCI Express Root Port
    (rev 04)
    0000:00:1b.0 0403: Intel Corp. 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family)
    High Definition Audio Controller (rev 03)

    #deleted stuff that didn't look relivent to sound

    graf@Grafnet:~$ lsmod | grep snd
    graf@Grafnet:~$ aplay /usr/share/sounds/login.wav
    ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:868snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
    aplay: main:508: audio open error: No such file or directory

    Does anyone have any idea?
