AD1985 sound in Debian...PLEASE HELP!!!


I have a Asus P4P800 Deluxe with the AC97 SoundMAX onboard (AD1985), and a HD install of Knoppix (just like debian). Anyway, I get no sound. When I booted off the CD originally, it detected the sound just fine, but no sound (XMMS, KDE sounds, etc)! So I installed it to my HD, then removed all sound related modules (except for soundcore, i just removed i810_audio and ac97_codec modules), installed my 3COM net driver (3C940 built into mobo), and searched on ASUSs website for AD1985 linux drivers, and I found one. It was the ASLA program zipped up, but I installed it anyway. I followed the directions, and loaded the i810_audio module, which also loaded the ac97 automatically. No sound! So I rebooted and tried again. lsmod still showed the modules loaded, so I started up X windows and guess what? Still no sound! So whats the deal? Im pretty new to linux but I know a little bit! Thanks in advance, Josh

I had an old pci soundcard so plugged that in after disable onboard sound in the bios I had sound but it isn`t an answer on the question why the AD1985
isn`t working on this board, I am wondering if the AD1985 really takes the
AC`97 codec or there is something else different on this motherboard.
Question still remains, sorry.

mixer?

You seem to have tried much, but maybe it's so simple that you only have to tune up the volume with a mixer.

P4P800 sound woes

I'm having similar problems with this motherboard. Sound works fine in WinXP. I'm trying to get sound from Fedora Core 1 - nothing. I loaded Mandrake 9.2 distro and got sound from system events but nothing from CD. I'm downloading Mandrake 10.0 beta and will install it tomorrow.

I'm new at Linux, but I will keep at it.

Anybody with a P4P800 had success?

This is really starting to make me mad. I also have a P4P800 Deluxe, AD1985 onboard sound, on Debian 3.0. No Sound. I've tried Alsa to no avail. If someone has figured this out, let us know

P4P800 sound nic video

Well, I finally got my Sound/Video/Nic working perfectly. If anyone else is having problems getting ther perhiperals to work on a P4P800 Deluxe running Debian 3.0 r2, hopefully this will help you with you out. (I spent way too long getting my things in working order)

Download kernel 2.6.6 or newer (http://www.kernel.org)
When configuring the kernel, do the following.

NIC (Onboard 3Com Gigabit LOM (3c940):
---->Device Drivers/Networking Support/Ethernet (1000 Mbit), select
Marvell Yukon Chipset / SysKonnect SK-98xx Support

Sound (Onboard Soundmax/AC97/AD1985):
---->Device Drivers/Sound/Advanced LInux Architecture/
ALSA
Seq. support
OSS Mixer API
OSS PCM
OSS Seq API
Intel i8x0/MX440, SiS 7012, Ali 5455; NForce Audio; AMD768/8111

---->Video (GeForce FX 5200):

/dev/agpgart (AGP Support)


Compile, install, boot new kernel.
Download & Install nVidia driver from http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-5336.html
Have fun.
