misc driver questions


Hi
I'm running Debian etch with a 2.6.18 kernel.

My sound didn't work out of the box and I'm sure all I need is a driver. I'm not quite sure which sound card I have, but it's onbord.

lspci gave me this result

00:1d.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) USB UHCI Controller #1 (rev 02)
00:1d.1 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) USB UHCI Controller #2 (rev 02)
00:1d.2 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) USB UHCI Controller #3 (rev 02)
00:1d.3 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) USB UHCI Controller #4 (rev 02)
00:1d.7 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) USB2 EHCI Controller (rev 02)
00:1e.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82801 PCI Bridge (rev c2)
00:1f.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) LPC Interface Bridge (rev 02)
00:1f.1 IDE interface: Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) IDE Controller (rev 02)
00:1f.2 IDE interface: Intel Corporation 82801EB (ICH5) SATA Controller (rev 02)
00:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) SMBus Controller (rev 02)
00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV31 [GeForce FX 5600] (rev a1)
02:02.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
02:04.0 Multimedia video controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Video Capture (rev 11)
02:04.1 Multimedia controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Audio Capture (rev 11)

Which driver (kernel module?) do I need to get my sound working?

I also have a Lexmark Z52 printer. Lexmark provides almost no linux support. has anyone managed to get this printer working?

Thanks in advance

If you get, command not found...

# aptitude install alsa-base alsa-utils
# alsaconf

Lexmark printers suck, but check out linuxprinting.org, and see if they provide any hope for you
