I ahve heard that in Slackware you use
modprobe ac97_codec
modprobe via86cxxx_audio

and then it works!
run lsmod to see what modules are loaded and see if ac97 is there.
I have the same board, but it won't work for me either, but I ahve heard that those commands do!

Thank you.
Do you know somebody using Red-Hat?
Only because i need an help.
I downloaded alsa-driver and configured them and other steps but the sound doesn't work.
But i think it is very painful to do, because nobody could help me since two weeks when i mailed my request for the first time.

I have Mandrake 9.1 running on that motherboard. It automatically set up the onboard sound. Here's the relevant output of lsmod

snd-seq 42608 2 [snd-seq-oss snd-seq-midi-event]

Does that help?

GA-7VAXP Sound Problem

I have the same board.

Tunr off ACPI in LILO or Grub.

Your problem will be solved.

Turn off ACPI

Enter acpi=off in Extra parameters.

I'm only a couple of years into Linux, so I still cling to GUI config tools.

From the KDE Control Panel
Select <System>
Select <Boot Manager>
Type

acpi=off

in "extra parameters".

Your system should (repeat "should") work.

With Mandrake I had a problem with the LAN driver
With SUSE I had a problem with the Sound driver.
So, it seems, ACPI doesn't cooperate nicely, let alone consistently.

Let me know how this works out.

done

Thank you for your help. I apreciate it.
I found what it did not work! The volume in the alsamixer!!!
I had to turn it on manually.
Now i have other new problems, after all it's not easy to be a newby.
See you.
