AC 97 integrated audio


As many other people in this forum I got this problem with my ASUS P4PE MB!
The on-board integrated soudcard doesn't works!!
It seems that is an impossible & too much frequent problem!!But until now the solutions seems far away...

I'm just a bit confused about the type of soundcard 'cause W2K find a Analog Devices SoundMax AC 97 but linux a different one (see below)

It seems that the ALSA drivers doesn't work but ...

These are my various message from the system:

lspci:

00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corp. 82801DB AC'97 Audio (rev 02)
Subsystem: Asustek Computer, Inc.: Unknown device 80b0

Memory at dd000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=256]

dmesg:

i810 TCO timer, v0.05: timer margin: 30 sec (0xe460) (nowayout=0)
i810_rng: RNG not detected

boot msg:

insmod: /lib/modules/2.4.20/kerner/driver/char/i810.rng.o.tgz: init_module: no such device
insmod: /lib/modules/2.4.20/kerner/driver/char/i810.rng.o.tgz: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters includin invalid IO or IRQ

Anyone knows a way to make this integrated audio working???
Thanx Very Much!!

Mandrake does have free iso's, and the minimum is just 1 disc, however there are 3 in the set if you want them all.

As for you audio problem(s) AC97 is generic as saying you run linux. The first line in lspci up there shows you which card to search for on the alsa soundcard matrix:
http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc...odule=intel8x0

You've got the intel 820xxx (or it would appear so anyway).

Same idea for everyone else, look at that first line, head over to:
http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc/

And look for info for your card.

Works on Slack too

Cool

you could search for posts by either MasterC or me as he was helping me trying to get my onboard sound AC97 device going a while back - and yes I have had it working but I still ended up installing a soundblaster live! 5.1 digital, which was by far the most satisfactory solution to my sound problems. Oh and I had the problem with suse 8, mandrake 8.2 and 9.0

good luck!

regards

Try doing modprobe audio_i810 or modprobe i810_audio at the console...and then it should work.

Well, TNX VM to all!!!

The soundcard now working!!!And works well (tested with good sound of ChildrenOfBodom)!!But the problem wasn't the ALSA driver or else.

I want to fix this thing for all ASUS P4PE (model with UATA 10/100LAN) owners:

The output on the back of the card goes out from the PINK connectors and not from the right one (green).
So, you must plug yr jack from the normal audio output (coloured green) into the pink one.

I don't know why under linux the output connetors is different.

Enjoy!!

Just digging through,

Could it be to do with the way linux gets it's sound from the drive in the first instance i.e. the drive that has the audio cable to the sound card will be the one to use for playing music, because I understand that windows picks the sound input from the ide cables whereas linux needs an audio connection to the soundcard though I believe some sound cards can have 2 or more audio input cables from the drives (and no I forgot to check last time I had the box open - this results in me having to use my cdrw to play music, my dvd not having an audio connection at the moment, won't play music cd's)???

Just a thought

regards

John

Asus P4PE Linux sound problem

Thanks Obscure!

Changing output jack from green to pink worked! Where in the world did you find that?

The sound is awesome!

Using the pink connector and not the green one can be very risky. Look at some of the other threads and you will see other users who have done this have messed up their onboard audio. This too happened to me.

I have an intel onboard soundcard whitch uses AC'97. I found the correct alsa driver linked from the official intel website. You might wanna check your manufacturers website, it sure solved my problem. And then be sure to get the mixer and unmute.

The solution is to use and configure ALSA driver...
Now I got my P4PE working correctly....

Bye
