Red Hat linux sound card detection problems


I run RedHat 8.0 and a have a weird problem with my sound card. I have a sound card enbeded in my motherboard. The problem probalbaly isn't driver because i installed the right drivers for it. When i run the soundcard e=detection program it dosen't work because it say that the module is disabled. Is there anyway to enable my sound card module? I've looked around on the internet and I see that this is a common problem among red hat users but i haven't been able to find answers to the problem. Many fourms have a few post that the problem exsist but list no reall solutions.

Did you try running "sndconfig" as root from a terminal and setting up your sound card properly?

If that does not work, and you need to load the module for you card, then, as root, do:

Code:
modprobe <name of the module to be loaded>
let's say you have a sound blaster compatible card, then "modprobe sb" would do it. If you know your sound card type then "modprobe your_card". You can modprobe for a lot of devices too, as scanners, webcams, joypads...
