No Sound in PC-Chips M758+ mb, with onboard c-media card
 
Well, I downloaded from the pc-chips site the driver for my motherboard, and still no sound, anyway it was the same one available in the modconf, so I'm pretty lost now :(
Any idea?
thanks...

What sound system are you using (OSS or ALSA)? What is the output of lsmod? Does Debian detect your sound card?

Thanks for answering =)
OSS or ALSA ? Well I'm not sure , this is my first linux experience(newbie), but if OSS stands for open sound system, I tried all of the options available there, autodetect, etc, and none worked.


this is what i get with lsmod :

Module Size Used by
ppp 20316 2 (autoclean)
slhc 4384 0 (autoclean) [ppp]
soundcore 2452 0 (autoclean) (unused)

usbcore 43920 0 [printer]
sis900 10156 1
af_packet 6152 3
unix 11352 85 (autoclean)

When I try Menu->Preferences->Information->Sound , I get an error loading the module.

Seems to me that you have neither one of those loaded. Try these commands as root:
modprobe snd
modprobe cmipci
Then test your sound.

Well, I did modprobe 'cmpci', but couldn't with 'snd', instead i was able with 'sound'...
modprobe: Can't locate module snd

now lsmod gives me:

Still no sound :(
thanks anyway

*edit*
just in case, this is a piece of 'dmesg' :

Ok, youre using OSS. After loading in those modules, try playing some file with XMMS (make sure youre using the OSS output plugin in the preferences). Its actually a better idea to use ALSA instead, since OSS is becoming obsolete. You can download and compile the drivers, libs, and oss-emulation from here:
