Have you got the sound working yet?

I had to use the alsa driver for i810 (and when I did get it working , it still didnt stop me buying a soundblaster live! 5.1)

regards

John

i just cant make it work

my onboard ac97 is 5.1 channel...the 3 outputs on the back are left/right, rear left/ rear right & centre/sub woofer

the front panel has 3 outputs too... a mic, a speaker and digital audio out

if i plug the front speaker in... no sound comes out the rear outputs

i dunno what happens with digital cos i havent used it yet...

maybe the drivers i have r trying to use digital or something?

im still very confused

Talking got it working

I guess you solved that problem in the meantime, but i found this
while i googled and if somebody else finds it maybe this will help.
(if he has a VIA southbridge)

go to http://www.viaarena.com/ and download the driver, build
and install.

It worked for me.

I have MSI KT3 ultra2 mainboard, and a built-in realtek ALC650
sound.

ok, here we go...
first, make sure you have those kernel sources downloaded and extracted, put them /usr/src, and then a folder should be created linux-2.version; you should do this as root from console: extract the tar.gz file with file-roller or whatever program that extracts tar.gz (or use terminal) and then in a terminal use mv /directory-of-linux-extract/linux-2.version /usr/src

now that that is done, (realize i'm using 9.0 redhat, so this may not be fully correct for yours) but go into your add/remove packages or whatever utility and get the snd-config utility (i believe that is what it is) installed (it should be listed under the sound category and was the only thing unchecked off mine)

now, try to see if you can get your sound working by using whatever sound card utility came with your redhat

if not, download the latest alsa-drivers and the latest alsa-conf

as root in terminal, cd into your alsa driver directory (i assume you extracted the files) and do ./configure and make sure there are no errors reported; then do make, and it will take a few minutes to build the modules; then do make install and it will put the files in their places

now cd into alsaconf directory (once again extracted) and do ./alsaconf, go through the configuration program, choosing your card from the list, hit enter through those screens, and then it will run some other things and setup the card (and it will do the modprobe whatever; however if you get an error about the module not being found, come back here with the output)

now, hopefully no errors, go into the sound card utility and see if redhat will now recognize the card (in 9.0, it will play three test sounds and will not give an error box)

if you do not hear sound but no error is reported, try increasing and unmuting the volume

if anything goes wrong, come back and we will be glad to help
