About Sound Card Driver: Usually, Windows operating systems apply a generic audio driver that allows computers to recognize the sound card component and make use of its basic functions. When enabled by proper files, the characteristics of the sound card (like model, manufacturer, number of channels) are completely available to computers,.

  1. A headphone driver is disc-shaped, and the size varies depending on the make and required sound output. The Impact of Driver Size on the Audio Quality. Simply put, the larger the driver the better the bass. But that doesn’t mean headphones with larger drivers produce better sound than their counterparts with smaller drivers.
  2. However, in order to make use of all network card adapter features, you must install a proper LAN driver that enables the hardware.

Sound playback, recording, and mixing in Debian is provided by the ALSAkernel interface, almost always in combination with a sound server. These sound-related services can, usually, be run in parallel without conflicting, and can often be integrated.

Sound servers and APIs

  • ALSA - The 'Advanced Linux Sound Architecture' (ALSA) is a part of the Linux kernel that provides an interface to the kernel audio drivers. It is also a userspace library ('alsa-lib') that provides more advanced features. All sound servers ultimately rely on the ALSA kernel API, and as such, it cannot be substituted. The userspace library, however, can be replaced.

  • PipeWire - A modern multimedia server looking to eventually unify and replace PulseAudio and JACK. Also a drop-in replacement for alsa-lib.

  • PulseAudio - A sound server that sits between ALSA and user applications, aiming to provide easy automatic sound configuration for users. It also provides a more advanced application interface than ALSA and can glue ALSA and JACK together. This is the most common sound server, and is often installed by default.

  • JACK - A sound server API and sound server daemon ('jackd') aimed at professional usage that provides real-time, low-latency connections for audio and MIDI between applications.

  • OSS (Legacy) - used to be the default sound subsystem before Linux 2.4

No sound: go through these steps while audio is playing in an application (music player, web browser...):

  • Check proper connection of the output jack
  • Check that your amplifier/speakers are powered on and working
  • Check that the audio playback program is unmuted/volume is raised, from inside the application, and in the system audio mixer (eg. PulseAudio volume control or alsamixer.

  • Check that your soundcard is visible, enabled, and is selected as default in the Configuration tab of the audio mixer

  • Disable any other output devices like HDMI, only enable the desired output
  • Check that your soundcard is detected by ALSA: aplay -l

    • Check that a driver/module is loaded for your sound card using lspci -knn

    • If not, identify your soundcard's PCI ID ([XXXX:XXXX]) and paste the ID here to determine if a driver is available in Debian.

    • Check if your soundcard requires an additional Firmware.

  • Check whether you can play sound as Root/add your user to the audiogroup
