    Yeah the key to gettin ur sound workin is definitely findin out what sound card u got. Then try use to search for ur sound card. Also does edulinux use ALSA or OSS for its sound?:cheers:

    The command "lspci -vv" (as root) will tell you what sound chip you have, look for the entry about the 'Multimedia audio controller', here is mine as an example,
    [email protected] bern$ su -c 'lspci -vv'
    00:05.0 Multimedia audio controller: nVidia Corporation nForce MultiMedia audio [Via VT82C686B] (rev a2)

    The module for this chip is snd-intel8x0, you can check if it's loaded with the "lsmod" command (again as root), eg:
