I have integrated sound on the motherboard of my Dell Dimension 4500. It's i810 so it should be using that module, with the ac97 codec/driver Sound worked in Slackware 10, Red Hat 9, but after installing 10.1 (and repartitioning since I have a new hard drive), the sound does not work. When I run an app like XMMS and open a streaming media file or an MP3, etc, it shows it playing but I do not hear the sound. /sbin/lsmod shows:
/lib/modules/2.4.29/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o: init_module: No such device
/lib/modules/2.4.29/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.29/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.29/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.29/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o: insmod i810_audio failed
I'm wondering if this could possibly be referring to /dev/pcm, as I was previously able to get sound to work (in Slackware 10) by using /dev/pcm as the output device and chmoding it so all users could use sound. 10.1 doesn't come with /dev/pcm, and ./MAKEDEV says it doesn't know how to make the device.
If anyone could point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it!
From your lsmod output I can't see any module called i810_audio, so I think the error message you get when you try loading such module is normal.
The modules for your i810 integrated soundcard seem are correctly loaded.
May be you forgot running alsamixer first ???
Hope this helps
I already ran alsamixer, and then saved the settings using alsactl store. But I hadn't thought to try alsaconf.. when I run it, it says that no supported PnP or PCI card is found. However, I know that the sound is supported as it previously worked...
