No Sound card with Gateway Laptop and Mandrake 10.1 Official
I installed Mandrake 10.1 official on my Gateway M320 Laptop, but I am not getting any sound.
The outputs for /etc/modules shows only 2 modules loaded, which means sound module is not loaded.
%s Cat /etc/modules
The hardware support, however shows the following sound card and says configured.
I tried all possible things with alsa, and made sure that nothing is muted. Everything is "on" but no sound.
The hardware specifications that Linux detects is as follows:
Vendor: Intel Corp.
Description: ICH4 845G/GL Chipset AC'97 Audio Controller
Media class: MULTIMEDIA_AUDIO
Bus PCI #: 0
PCI device #: 31
PCI function #: 5
Vendor ID: 32902
Device ID: 9413
Sub vendor ID: 5663
Sub device ID: 8250
Alternative drivers: ali5455, i810_audio, nvaudio
I am not very experienced in Linux and do not know how to load modules manually, or figure out which module is to be loaded. Please help.
