    [help]Sound problem - amd64 (VMware - The default sound device cannot be opened)

    hello guys , hope you all fine
    i have problem with sound since i started using Kali Linux v 1.0.5
    after installing Kali Linux amd64 on vmware workstation even with the latest version (Kali 1.0.6 iso + vmware workstation 10.1) problem was still annoying me
    here's such pic after power on the vmware , off course it happens every time i power on it

    here's what i tried
    sudo killall pulseaudio
    sudo apt-get purge pulseaudio-utils gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio paman pavumeter pavucontrol
    rm ~/.pulse-cookie
    rm -r ~/.pulse
    sudo apt-get install alsa-base alsa-tools alsa-tools-gui alsa-utils alsa-oss alsamixergui libalsaplayer0
    apt-get install kmix
    and didn't work as i still get that message from vmware and sound still muted
    can anyone have a appropriate solution to help me fix this problem and thanks for this good community

    alright i guess Kali Linux (Debian 7) have problem with VIA sound cards maybe
    Backtrack or Ubuntu generally doesn't have such problem
    i even got live CD for Debian 7.4 amd64 KDE and sound work smoothly like this

    so is it bug on Kali Linux (Debian 7) and shall i report to be fixed in future versions or what shall i do
    please i just need answers
    and thank you
