Intel Corp. 82801eb AC'97 Soundcard


I post in an eariler thread about this, but it seems the thread got lost. Anyways.

I have been trying to get this card to work for about 5 days now. I have tried everything from alasconf to sndconfig. Anyone have an idea on how I can get it to work.


Thank you

Is this in ALSA or OSS?
The ALSA module for this chip is snd-intel8x0.

Check your sound device permissions.

Fixed 8280x sound card with Alsa problem under Gentoo

Once gentoo 2007.0 was installed, I had no sound setup yet.

My motherboard uses a 82801 intel chipset including an AC'97 sound controller.

I tried to compile the kernel 2.6.22 R9 to include Alsa (as proposed into the gentoo alsa help page : http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/alsa-guide.xml)

The sound level gnome applet would not allow me to unmute PCM nor change the amplitude. And I could not get any sound.

Then I found out that running alsaconf in a shell would enable sound.
There was however a mixer setup error reported upon finishing the script:
'alsactl: set_control:1159: Cannot write control '2:0:0:PCM Playback Volume:0'

And Gnome sound began working.But PCM volume control was still unusable.
And I had to redo it upon every reboot.

I recompiled the kernel to remove all alsa and oss modules and only keep the basic sound support (reportedly named soundcore), not as a module but as a feature (that is selected as a * in menuconfig. not a M)

I then tried to install alsa-driver (as proposed into the gentoo alsa help page : http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/alsa-guide.xml)

And everything now works fine!
