Hello. I'm a n00b in linux. I have slack 8.1 on a Shuttle motherboard: Via KT266A VT 8366-8233. I have sound on board. I had compiled my kernel with Via Chip-set Support (BTW i have kernel 2.4.18) and VIA 82C686 Audio Codec as a module and VIA 82C686 MIDI integrated. I had modify the rc.modules and every thing goes ok. I passed the /dev/dsp (no such device) problem. But still no sound. When i run xmms, even as a root, it blocks. The mplayer has no audio output. It runs the movie but with no sound.
When i: lsmod the output is:
via82cxxx_audio 18080 2
ac97_codec 9568 0 [via82cxxx_audio]
soundcore 3236 2 [via82cxxx_audio]
i tryed to /sbin/module via82cxxx_audio irq=5 coz i did a lspci and i find out the irq. i even changed the mod of /dev/dsp to 666 and after to 777 and nothing same "black sound". The sound works perfectly in Windows and on my other box were i have a Epox motherboard the sound works perfectly. I don't know what to do any more. I even Thoth to download some new drivers but i don't know from were so please help me with this problem.
