Have you tried tweaking mixer settings? I had a lot of trouble
getting sound to come up, and don't remember all the steps I had to
take, but the biggest one was determining which input source to
record from and getting the mixer to record at volume. I ended up
pulling my sound blaster live card out of my computer completely and
using the onboard AC97 (which I had disabled in the bios, but linux
still saw as present and was causing all kinds of confusion) with the
alsa drivers and mixer.
