Just trying to summarize the problem.
I'm running under the new kernel 2.6.8.1.
My sound card is giving me problems.
Seems like there is no option on the gconfig to set this sound card on the kernel.
this is my sould card:

Intel Corp. 82801DB AC'97 Audio (rev 02)

and there is a folder on: /usr/src/linux-2.6.8/sound/pci/AC97 that seems to have all the files needed to set my sound card but still there is no way for me to set that because the gconfig is not showing the option for my sound card...

any idea????

That is your card for bios but the alsa module is snd-intl8x0 but that might not be the right syntax,did you put a m or y to that?What happens when you run alsaconf?Is you sound unmuted?

The "Intel i8x0/MX440, SiS 7012; Ali 5455; NForce Audio; AMD768/8111" and the "Intel i8x0/MX440; AMD768/8111 modems (EXPERIMENTAL)" are both Y (actually those are the only 2 installed).

Seems like alsaconf is not installed. Apparently you have to activate the application when compiling the kernel but the documentation doesn't tell you how to do it (I couldn't find it).

this is the error message when running alsaconf: "bash: alsaconf: command not found"

how do I check if my sound is unmounted???

Unmute;open up a mixer and check the settings,if you compiled support Y into the kernel and not as modules alsa may not see it but your sound will work once you unmute the sound.Did you try alsaconf as root?What distro are you using?Redhat?Search for alsa for your distro,the kernel should be OK just need alsa utils installed and whatever comes with that for your distro.Edit your profile and add your distro name to it as each one is a little different in configuring stuff.
