    Sound problem, alsa not working

    Just installed kali linux on my asus t100ta and fixed my wifi, so started looking into my sound problems. There is no sound, no sound card, pulseaudio doesn't start on start up, but even when started manually it doesn't find sound card. Alsa seems to be not loading, since none of alsa commands works and when I try # sudo apt-get install (or remove, or whatever) alsa-utils (or any other alsa package) it gives an error. Although there is alsa directory: /usr/share/alsa.


    Code:
    root@kali:~# sudo apt-get install alsa-utils
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Package alsa-utils is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    
    E: Package 'alsa-utils' has no installation candidate
    Can anyone tell me whats wrong and how can I fix this issue?

    So the problem solved itself. Seems that for some reason my system can't detect alsa-utils package, but finds alsa-base with no problem. So I just downloaded needed packets from http://http://alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Main_Page and installed them by myself
