I'm not getting sound out of my speakers. The Sound Preferences > Hardware tab is not listing anything. I know these speakers are good, and I know they cooperated with the hardware at one point, but after some playing around with oss/pulse/etc back in the days of Ubuntu 8/9, they haven't been working since, and a full purge and reinstall of pulse did not seem to fix it.
lspci -v lists the following for my audio controller
So the card (or technically, chipset) is there. It looks like it might be trying to use oss still, maybe.
$ lspci -v

I'm still not completely terminal savvy with linux, so if you want anything from me, try to walk me through how to do it, like at least give me the terminal commands.
cannot open mixer: No such file or directory
Please help me get my sound working again.
