Hi,

I am having some problems with sound. I followed the ALSA guide and used
alsa-driver. I am able to hear songs on mplayer, however i dont hear startup
sounds nor can i get skype to work.

Output of lsmod

Output of cat /etc/modules.d/alsa

alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
alias sound-slot-0 snd-intel8x0

Basic dmix works

alsaplayer -o alsa -d plug:dmix some.mp3 &
$ aplay -D plug:dmix some.wav &
$ alsaplayer -o alsa -d plug:dmix some.mp3 &

So does this
 aoss mpg321 some.mp3,

When i make a skype call .. i get the following messages on the console

volume_open: error opening /dev/mixer: No such file or directory
volume_open: error opening /dev/mixer: No such file or directory
volume_open: error opening /dev/mixer: No such file or directory
