Alsa v1.0.14rc2 Not working with Intel 82801G on Redhat enterprise 4 RHEL4


Have been spending quite some time with my linux installation to get the sound / audio to work.

Eventually, installed alsa v1.0.14rc2 , after I uninstalled all the old alsa drivers. I get errors in dmesg and the /proc/asound directory doesn't exist.

Your post indicates that snd_page_alloc is the only driver loaded.
