Have you installed the alsa utils? I so...try the alsamixer...I had to play
with a couple of channels that were turned off that only were visible with
I hope that helps...(by the way you might want to try to plugg it to the

>6. If I type '/etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S17alsa stop' it tells me that "ALSA driver
