[ubuntu] no sound

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have just installed version 9.10 Beta version of the distribution as my hard drive failed so I needed to reinstall anyway. This has to be the first version of Ubunu where the sound does not work right out of the box. I'm using Intel X48 chipsets for making high audio sound. I'm connected to the soundcard from the speakers using an optical cable. In every previous version of the distribution all I needed to do wasn't engage digital output. I have done the same using pulseaudio applet but I still get no sound. I have even tried running alsamixer from the command prompt. No matter what I do I get no sound. I realize this is beta software, but I am feeling that it's going to stay the same for the final release. If anybody has any suggestions on how to fix this please let me know. I am running 64-bit version of the software. The software I mean the distribution. I really hope this bug gets fixed by the final release in a couple of weeks. Thanks for your help:guitar: (Hardware)
