Go to ALSA.org and get 0.8 I think it is. I have the same chipset on my laptop and it will work once you follow the install steps.
I got these from some where ....

==================================================================
You need to download 4 packages : alsa-driver, alsa-lib, alsa-oss and alsa-utils - get verson 1.08 from http://www.alsa-project.org/ - (see top right of page for links)


extract all of files

bunzip2 alsa-driver-1.0.8.tar.bz2
tar -xf alsa-driver-1.0.8.tar
bunzip2 alsa-lib-1.0.8.tar.bz2
tar -xf alsa-lib-1.0.8.tar
bunzip2 alsa-oss-1.0.8.tar.bz2
tar -xf alsa-oss-1.0.8.tar
bunzip2 alsa-utils-1.0.8.tar.bz2
tar -xf alsa-utils-1.0.8.tar


Now complete the following. Now this will differ from what is listed on the alsa website for intel sound cards, you will not be specifying a card type. You will need to be root for this. So 'su' into root.

cd alsa-driver-1.0.8
./configure;make;make install

cd ../alsa-lib-1.0.8
./configure;make;make install

cd ../alsa-oss-1.0.8
./configure;make;make install

cd ../alsa-utils-1.0.8
./configure;make;make install

now just to be sure that everything is set right you will want to run snddevices

cd ../alsa-driver-1.0.8
./snddevices

after this reboot the machine.

After the machine has come back up. From the shell run 'alsamixer' and change your volume settings. Or just go to the sound icon on the panel and adjust them there.

And make sure your speakers are actually plugged in. I forgot to make sure and thought this whole process didn't work.



The above worked for me but I still can't adjust the volume and had to use software volume adjustment in XMMS - these cards / chip sets are still so new - you might have to get an older more compatible know to work one!
Hope this helps and thanks to whom ever I copied these instruction from too!

checking for kernel version... The file /lib/modules/2.6.11/source/include/linux/version.h does not exist.
Please, install the package with full kernel sources for your distribution
or use --with-kernel=dir option to specify another directory with kernel
sources (default is /lib/modules/2.6.11/source).

What version of Linux do you have? - you'll need a newish version link Fefora Core 3 and once you've installed it update all the packages (use yum) If you wait a few weeks fedore core 4 is gonna come out but you could get a test vesion now from fedora.redhat.com - you will want vesion 4test3 - just came out on Monday. Searching on this forum I see people have got it working out the box with mandrake 10.2 I think - less hassle than downloading Fedora and pissing around with dependency problems.

I don't know what version of ALSA that has, and alsa has to play nicely with other parts of linux too or you get errore when you compile the code( like you did) Do a search on the forums as I see some other post on the 915 chipset - I'd install mandrake cos I think thats what one person installed and it worked out the box - I think 10.2 is not free though.
