hmm... I am not fairy new on linux so I don't know if it will work for you or not...

As far as I know, you can specify the kernel to support that chip when you run make menuconfig on your kernel source /usr/src/linux and re-compile the kernel.

Or may be you can run the driver as a module? If it is a module,
try modprobe <your module name> and it should do it.

If that works, then you can add your module to /etc/modules.autoload file so the kernel will run the module everytime it starts.

Hope this help.

most of those cmi chipsets setup really easy, with
that cmpci model.
you can try to open a mixer program like kmix and
see if it can open /dev/dsp
alsa i think always starts up with all the volumes
turned all the way down, so if its an alsa module,
you'll have to turn the volume up to hear anything.
almost an cm chip based sound card will work with
the cmpci module.

sorry, i thought it was easier than that.
you can check the settings for a card with
cat /proc/pci, and reading the settings for the
card you are looking for.

c-media9738

I'm using a c-media 9738 in a ecs board. I use the i810 sound module. it is
listed as a sis7012 audio controller on my system. The only problem I'm having now is that I have to use arts to control the sound levels. I seemed to have lost the links to the mixers. On the previous board the sis 7012 was running an avance logic sound chip.
