Soundcard problems


** Before you read on, Keep in mind this is my first Linux distro, ever. **

Long story short, I installed Damn Small Linux 0.9.1, It installed all my hardware (Onboard Video,LAN etc) except for my Onboard PCI soundcard I made sure the sound levels weren't at 0 & then tried to play an audio CD and heard no sound either.

Here is the output of /sbin/lspci & cat /proc/pci

cat /proc/pci
Multimedia audio controller: Intel corp. 82801BA/BAM AC'97 Audio (rev1).

IRQ 11
I/O at 0x2000 [0x20ff].
I/O at 0x2400 [0x243f].
Bus 2, device 8, function 0:

/sbin/lspci
No such directory or file exist.

Does anyone know what could be wrong?

Enabling ACPI

Thanks for the reply,

I searched the forums for what ACPI is - Advanced Configuration and Power Interface & how to enable it. But all the threads I found were about how to Enable ACPI for a specific Distro (Debian, Mandrake etc). I was wondering if you could provide me with a link or could tell me how for Damn Small Linux sorry to ask but I don't want to use the method for debian or something and do something wrong.

Well, pick a random distro. I know some of them have to have instructions for re-comp9iling a kernel with acpi. Its the same for you.
