I have a AC97 (or something) soundcard. When I installed Red Hat 9, it detected my soundcard properly and i could hear the test sound withouth problems. But now when im running Red Hat and try to play the test sound, i can't hear it?!?!
The following audio device is detected:
Vendor: VIA Technologies
Model: VT8233 AC97 Audio Controller
:uts a wet finger to your puter and listens to it sizzle:: :-D
Whoohoo!, nice.. anyway
You could try compiling acpi features, since AC'97 is an acpi card in piles and piles of laptops...
Other than that, since its a really cheap sound card.. go pick up a really cheap soundcard to replace it? Sort of your, 15$ soundblaster from the discount store will do
