Smile Sound on Dell Optiplex GXi


Hi all I have installed Mandrake 10 on an old Dell optiplex GXi. I`m dual booting with Win98 on a 20gig HD. Everything is working great except the sound as it says "No Sound card detected"
Can anyone tell ne how to rectify this as it is an onboard sound card.
Thanks in advance
Steve

Try lspci, in order to see which card it is.
Perhaps isapnptools can help ya too.

I have the same system Running Mepis Linux kernel 2.6.7

I did the command as you said:

root# isapnp /etc/isapnp.conf
Board 1 has Identity b6 ff ff ff ff 35 68 63 0e: CSC6835 Serial No -1 [checksum b6]

Then i ran:
root# pnpdump >/etc/isapnp.conf

kwrite /etc/isapnp.conf


i think i'm on the right track here.....!


I'll keep you posted.

i have a box w/that card, try

modprobe cs4232

post the results. if you get no errors, try running a mixer, and unmute your sound.
good luck.

Nothing happens.
here's the output:
--
demo@27[deleric]# modprobe cs4232
demo@27[deleric]# alsamixer

alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device
--

Should i load the cs4232 as a kernel module on startup?

try another mixer, kmix, aumix, there are others but i think those two are pretty common. have you installed alsa? if so you could try unloading the module and running alsaconf. i'm not sure what steps you taken to get to this point, so you'll have to enlighten me.
good luck.
