Linux audio driver for Intel 915 Family Chipset


Hi all,

At my office desk, I have a Pentium IV 3.2 GHz with an Intel 915 chipset. I installed Red Hat Linux 9, but the audio isn't working. On searching the Intel site, I found that Intel hasn't yet released Linux audio drivers for this chipset.

Could anyone help me out?

Another query : I have another computer on the LAN, that runs Linux and audio is working fine on it. So, is there a way I can remote login to that machine from my desk machine, and then run some media server there, that streams audio to my desk machine? Can I listen to any audio then, though my desk machine doesnt have the correct audio driver?
May be I got this all wrong, but is there any other way to use the remote machine to listen audio on my desk machine?

Thanks for any help.

so the 915 chip doesnt' use ac97? I thought that almost all onboard chips did. If there are no drivers, then the only other option is to buy a cheap 20 dollar soundblaster card.(still much better than the onboard intel ones)

that would be impossible. the soundcard must work in order for sound to work. The soundcard is what interprets sound instructions and converts it so it can be output to a speaker/headphones.


And one more thing, Redhat 9 is very very old. Redhat was discontinued a few years ago, and now it has become fedora core. i would install the latest fedora core, as redhat hasn't been updated since 2001 i believe.

I had the same problem. Solution found:

Install a new kernel AND Alsa 1.0.8 and then you should type alsaconf to install the driver.

I was unable to correcty install a new alsa so I just switched to a distro that already comes with alsa 1.0.8 and a new kernel: Mandrake 10.2

It detected the audio driver upon installation and no more problems!!!
