sound card for toshiba... can't find driver


I can't get my sound working running slackware 9.1 (updated to current using swaret) on a toshiba m35-s359 laptop. I have had the sound working during previous installations so, I'm sure it's supported. I booted up into windows to see which driver is being used there. Windows uses:

Intel(r) 82801DB/DBM/DA AC '97 Audio Controller

I haven't been able to find a linux driver for my card.

From what I read, it seems that maybe I should be using the i810 driver??? I don't know... I'm a big linux newb. I think that the i810 driver is what is installed, or is attempted to be installed.

When I run alsaconf, it says that no plug-n-play sound card can be found. I was looking in /var/log/syslog and saw a bunch of "failures" relating to i810.

Here are a couple sections from that file... I'm not sure if it's helpful to anyone or not. The second section goes on repeating for quite a while.

Try the Intel website - they should be able to identify your sound card and I believe there is a driver there.

Thanks for the reply. Intels site doesn't seem to have the needed drivers for linux but... I finally ran across something that worked for me.

If anyone else runs in to a similar problem, follow these directions!
