sound configuration


i am trying to make the sound work after a fresh installation. i am doing:
3000:~# apt-get install sndconfig
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Package sndconfig 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 sndconfig has no installation candidate
3000:~#

how do i fix sound? my kernel is 2.6.8.3-k7

Find out what chip is used for sound on that board, then figure out what driver you need, hunt that down (use Google ) and install

Yeah. How about RTFM? 'Cause there you'll find what chips are used on your board... :-\ As a matter of fact, you don't even have to look any further then the description of the board on the Asus website.

The MB appears to have the AD1888 sound chip, so it should work with the ALSA drivers.
Install the packages alsa-base and alsa-utils, then run alsaconf.
