Why can't I hear any sound on my Linux machine?

Try running the command, "kmix". The little check boxes are mute buttons. Even if the volume slider is all the way up, if the button muted no sound will come out. Turn everything on and see if that fixes the sound problem.

When the machine reboots, all the channels are muted and you have to un-mute them.
