I am running Hardy with an Audigy sound card.

Everything actually works great.

I dual boot Hardy so I can play on one and use the other. On my Work install I have the also mixer. There is no problem.

I am trying to get gnome-alsamixer on my play install.

Installed with sudo apt-get. Got this error. Was playing music at the time, thought this was a problem maybe. Dropped all music stuff. Used synaptic to reinstall. Same deal. Synaptic uninstall. Synaptic install.

Still getting:

I ran a search on SigmaTel_STAC9721,23 and got some things on this forum, none of which seem help. Everyone seems to have a no sound problem. My sound is great. there was a post with the same error list, not solved, and they had no sound back in 2007, no suggestions.

Thread/Howto at

really likes the gnome-alsamixer and I would like to try it as I have not been overly impressed with the alsa mixer but certainly have no real complaint. I am on my play install so it doesn't matter if I break the whole thing.

What the heck do I do now?
