Help needed for installing my sound card!
 
I have the following information for my sound device. I have FC9 on DG33FB. I want to know how can I install driver for this audio device. Thanks

Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02)

It should be in the kernel. Please submit the output of "/sbin/lsmod" to this post so we can see if it's loaded or not. Thanks!

If I'm not mistaken, someone once said that this module loading could conflict with the sound card. Try blacklisting it and tell me if that fixes the problem.

There's also "alsaconf", but personally I don't like it and I don't use it.

How come? I've never had problems with it. It's fast and simple.

Mainly because I've never needed it. My sound has worked correctly out of the box since ALSA was first encorporated into the Linux kernel, and even before then. Also, with a little ~/.asoundrc I have perfectly working dmix. I also totally removed OSS back-compatibility and still have had no problems. Whenever a Slackware release comes out I do a clean install and just copy over my ~/.asoundrc. No problems at all.

Frankly I've just never needed it. I've also seen it fail to detect sound devices (namely my USB Altec Lansing XT1), so I just don't bother using it. Much less the devices all worked before I ran it in this example, so I fail to see the point. I recommend it once in a while but not often. If your sound works already, why bother running it?

I am still curious why people in the Linux community act surprised when someone doesn't use <insert program / tool name here>. Why do you care whether I use alsaconf or not?

I don't. It was a mere curiosity.

I'm interested in him blacklisting pcskr right now. Maybe that's the issue. If I exhaust all my other avenues of troubleshooting, then sure, I'll have him run alsaconf, but mainly out of desperation. ALSA is an excellent set of drivers: I've seen very few weird situations with it.
