Software: Jaunty Jackeope, also the Ubuntu studio

I am really tired and disgusted at this point. I have re-installed Ubuntu at least 7 times, trying to resolve an issue with dual booting with Window XP Pro. Each re-install produced no sound. Once I got the dual boot issue resolved, I had to delete all of the Ubuntu install partitions so that I could recover all of the space.

I have workded through the steps described here:


as well as other places. I even ran a script to compile the lastet driver from the alsa site. The end result is the same. Linux knows I have a sound card and what type it is, but it will not load the drivers. Is there a command that will force it to re-recognize the sound card?

The results from running the asls script are at


I tried this too.


I have spent literally hours on this without the OS recognizing the sound card. If I plug in my Logitech web cam the pulse audio system will find it and use it.
