no sound with intel ich5 / ad1985
I'm having issues playing any sound. I've been trying to test it using $ play /usr/share/sounds/KDE_Startup.wav. It acts like it's playing. I used Totem Media Player on the same file and the picture moves around like something is playing, the volume is at max, but I don't hear anything.
I've just installed Mandrake 10.0, Linux 2.6.3-7mdk (first Linux install for me). In WinXP the integrated sound on my Intel D865PERL, which is AD 1985 using 82801EB / ICH5, works fine.
Installation detects this as 82801EB AC'97 Audio and defaults to module snd-intel8x0.
I've tried to read other posts and use the online help, so far this is what I've done -
# lspcidrake -v | fgrep AUDIO

alsamixer shows I'm not muted on master mono, master surround, pcm, surround, center, lfe, line, cd, mic, phone, iec958 playback ac97-spsa, pc speaker, or aux.
I turned everything to max volume in aumix, and did the same in kmix.
I tried plugging my speakers into each of the 5 jacks on the back of my motherboard with no luck each time.
I ran alsaconf, which chooses Intel Corp. 82801EB AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02). This is the same intel8x0 that the installation program chose. This seemed to complete successfully but still no sound.
From Intel's website I got ftp://download.intel.com/design/motherbd/rl/intel8x0-alsa-1.0.1.sh.gz, followed the instructions, it appeared to install the same intel8x0 as listed above but still no sound.
The installation program lists alternate drivers as ali5455, i810_adio, and nvaudio. After trying to choose those in the installation program and not getting any better results, I added them to /etc/hotplug/blacklist as this had been suggested in another post I read to solve what seemed like a similar problem - still no sound.
Being new to Linux, I'm not sure if I'm missing something or where to go from here to troubleshoot. Anyone have any ideas?
