I'm sort of new to linux as you can see. Few days ago I installed Red Hat Enterprise Linux v4 on my IBM thinkpad 600E which has a cs-4236 as sound card. The Kernel I'm using is 2.6.9-42.0.2.EL
. When I boot up the system a window comes up that says something like "can't find the sound card and /dev/dsp doesn't exist
By the way when I run "lspci" command I get this:
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 440BX/ZX/DX - 82443BX/ZX/DX Host bridge (rev 03)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 440BX/ZX/DX - 82443BX/ZX/DX AGP bridge (rev 03)

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Neomagic Corporation NM2200 [MagicGraph 256AV] (rev 12)
I tried to install ALSA but still it doesn't work. because it doesn't detect any soundcard.
When I run the graphical program "Sound Card detection" it says no sound detected.
And what happened to that sndconfig
it seems to be omitted from red hat. In ALSA site I was told to run the modprobe command in order to insert the module to the kernel ( after compilig the driver files of course) but first the command only works when I'm logged in as root and not in su mode and second it doesn't work and says device doesn't exist.
I want to know if there is any other way to try?
Thanks a lot for your time for helping me.
