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)
lockd 42420 0 (autoclean) (unused)
sunrpc 57816 0 (autoclean) [lockd]
ide-floppy 8536 0
printer 4536 0 (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:

Module Size Used by
ppp 20316 2 (autoclean)
slhc 4384 0 (autoclean) [ppp]
cmpci 22624 0
lockd 42420 0 (autoclean) (unused)
sunrpc 57816 0 (autoclean) [lockd]
sound 56384 0 (unused)
soundlow 384 0 [sound]
soundcore 2452 7 [cmpci sound]
ide-floppy 8536 0
printer 4536 0 (unused)
usbcore 43920 0 [printer]
sis900 10156 1
af_packet 6152 3
unix 11352 129 (autoclean)

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:
