Hello to you, too!
It sounds like your soundcard's mixer is not configured properly.
If your Slackware box is configured to boot into CLI (Command-Line
Interface) login, rather than startup KDE Login screen, this should be
Login, run 'alsamixer' pick whatever sound values look right. Use
the "M" key to toggle "Mute" (most stuff is Mute'd out). Quit back to
the console and type 'alsactl store'. Then start KDE.
