i am the beginner of Linux os, yesterday i intall the Fedora core 1 in my laptop Asus S5n which uses the intel certrino 1.4GHz. In windows xp it says my sound card chipest is SoundMax intergrated digital audio, but the fc1 says it belongs to i810_audio modules, and it does not work at all. if i click the speaker beside the clock ,it reply that "an't find the mixer in /dev/sound/mixer...".
After read many articles from the internet ,i know i should install the ALSA drivers, then i download the drivers, utilities and lib packets which versions is 1.0.9 and try to install the drivers follow the INSTALL guide. the last step is edit the /etc/modules.conf , but it doesn't say how to edit it ! so when i try to use the modprobe command, it reply that: can't locate the modules...
i think the problem is i didn't edit the modules.conf accurately, so i turn to linuxquestions.org, help me..
my original modules.conf :
alias eth0 8139too
alias usb-controller usb-uhci
alias usb-controller1 ehci-hcd
alias ieee1394-controller ohci1394
alias sound-slot-0 i810_audio
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
if use the lspci command:
