I am attempting to get a Logitech USB headset to work on my Debian Squeeze computer. However, no matter what I do, there is no sound. I've already tried everything I could find on Google with no luck.
cat /proc/asound/cards listed the internal card in slot 0 and my headset in slot 1. After following the suggestion to rename
/lib/modules/2.6.32-5-amd64/kernel/sound/pci/hda/snd-hda-intel.ko so it can't be found, it no longer reports the internal card, but my headset is still in slot 1.
I also tried editing
/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf to comment out the last line and add
options snd-usb-audio index=1, but nothing I did to this file had any effect. I also tried rebooting the computer in between each change, but that didn't help.
Update: I reenabled the
/lib/modules/2.6.32-5-amd64/kernel/sound/pci/hda/snd-hda-intel.ko module, so both the internal card and the headset showed up.
Then I installed PulseAudio using the directions at http://zitzlinuxblog.blogspot.com/2010/10/this-is-updated-version-of-how-to-i_07.html, but this only made things worse! Now the only thing that shows up under sound preferences and pavucontrol is "Dummy Output".
So what can I do? I'm at my wits end.
