Hi
I have a problem with sound card on Debian Sarge. I've built 2.6.14.4
kernel for many times, choosing different options in Sound section. I
use ALSA drivers of course. When I chose all cards in section PCi
devices (all sound cards in this subsection of section ALSA as a
modules) the kernel (during the boot) was running only ATI IXP so I
left only this driver in section PCI devices and built it in the kernel
(besides it doesn't matter because I've tried to built it as a module
and it wasn't a solution). The problem is that everything looks fine
but there is no sound I am pretty sure that the card is not mute
because I have been doing everything exactly like on other computers
(on which it worked). On this laptop I run XMMS, set output sound
driver on ALSA, play some music and there are no errors, I can see that
XMMS is working correctly but there is no sound.

Here is lspci output:

And some fragments of dmesg:

So where is the problem?
