I have an AC'97 sound card too but an Intel 810 MoBo and it works just by making the module. You could try recompile your kernel with sound card support or try with the ALSA divers if your MoBo is not supported by the OSS drivers

run
modprobe ac97
and
modprobe ac97_codec

your soundcard should then work. (withour having to recompile the kernel or anything)

actually the chances are upgrading will fix your problems, I had problems with my sound card in slackware 8.1 but 9.0 configured automatically for me which was great!

You need to get hold of a complete slackware 9.0 cd. I wouldn't recommend just upgrading the kernel package from the cd as it is likely to couse problems.

Slackware is much more configurable but can be hard to set up. if you are having too many problems with slackware I would recommend a distribution like suse or mandrake.

by all means try red hat. I personally prefer slackware but if you can't get it to work try whatever distro you like.

RedHat Vs Slack?

Redhat Vs Slackware No compatition. Slackware is the best.

But redhat is like micro$oft windows in a way, Good for the newbie. Simple easy and ok to start. But if your hardcore Slack is the best.

= Slackware
= Slackware newbie

= Redhat
= Redhat Newbie



^ Use Diagram... :P
