I have a Realtek ALC880 soundcard that Fedora (and other distros) are having trouble with. I went to the Realtek website to download drivers for their product and all I got was alsa 1.04. I decided not to install it since, from what I understand, Fedora already has a newer version. The instructions also told me to change the alsa's modules.conf file according to their included file which contained:
#alias sound-slot-0 via82cxxx_audio //remark this line, this is default audio driver
#====== added those lines =============
alias char-major-116 snd
options snd major=116 cards_limit=1
# -- Azalia controller -----------------------------
alias snd-card-0 snd-azalia
options snd-azalia index=0 id="Azalia"
#--- Intel 8x0 , SiS 7012 and NVidia----------
#alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
#options snd-intel8x0 index=0 id="ICH"
#--- Via8233 Via686a -------------------------------
#alias snd-card-0 snd-via82xx
#options snd-via82xx index=0 id="VIA"
#--- ATI -------------------------------
#alias snd-card-0 snd-atiixp
#options snd-atiixp index=0 id="ATI"
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
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 || :
My questions are 1) where would I find the modules.conf? and 2) how would I add this information? Just paste it straight in?
i'm in a similar position - but not yet at this stage - meaning i'm already having error messages while make and make install is executed - i also have feodoar core 3 (or maybe 2) - do i have to have certain packages to be installed to proceed??
