AC 97 Integrated Audio


Hey all, i recently installed Slackware Linux (10.0) on my computer, everything works great, except 1 thing: the audio.
I got a AC 97 sound card (integrated, my MoBo is an MSI KM4M), i did everything to get it to work, and no luck.
So please, if you know how to get it to work, it will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance

I don't know how Slack does sound configuration. But I'm guessing you need the via82xx kernel module. Is this getting loaded? Check output of 'lsmod'.

Hi,
Have you got ALSA installed? Because your sound card is quite common and works well
in Linux. You have to have installed alsa-base and alsa-utils.
Once installed, run 'alsaconf', as root.
Once your card is detected, and you have the 'enjoy' message, finish with :
'alsactl store', to save your settings and not have to do that at each reboot.

cheers

And of course start up alsamixer in a terminal window and check that at least Master and PCM are unmuted and turned up.
