Hi, Thanks for the responses. My understanding from the handbook was that I did
not need to do this as I simply loaded a module (by editing the 'loader.conf'
file). Am I mistaken? I am able to hear sound when watching films using mplayer.
Does that not mean that the audio cable is connected to the sound card (in
response to somebody's suggestion)? I will check later that this is the case.
Thanks, Rahul
