redhat 9, no sound


I've installed rh9 almost 2 weeks ago and still can't get it working! I go to sndconfig and it notices my sndcard but says it's not supported. I downloaded the driver and installed it but still no luck. Can someone please help me get sound to work. Thank you!

download and install the alsa drivers, search for them on the net or sourceforge, going to their homepage

after that, make sure sndconfig is installed (by the sounds of it, it is) and after that, use the redhat sound card identifier program listed under system tools or system options, try the test sound and it should play

edit: after that, you will probably need to modprobe the driver: download the program on their site that allows u to configure your sound card and modprobe the alsa soundcard because there is a specific name u have to use for your sound card when u modprobe; also u probably won't have any luck with that program, just post the output and i or someone else can help u after that

also, what kind of soundcard u got?

I have an aureal vortex 2 "au8830". Is the alsa driver for an alsa soundcard or do I just have to install it anyway?

alsa is Advanced Linux Sound Architecture whose goal is to create a basic sound support for many sound cards with lots of advanced features

yes, u will probably need to install them (i did for my i810)

sorry but I'm new to shell. After untarring the driver I cd to alsa-driver and then I typed ./configure. What do I do after that?

after I type "make install" this is what I get:
rm -rf /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/sound
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/safil/alsa-driver-0.9.6/support'
make -C pnp modules_install
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/safil/alsa-driver-0.9.6/support/pnp'
mkdir -p /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/sound/support/pnp
cp snd-pnp.o /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/sound/support/pnp
cp: cannot stat `snd-pnp.o': No such file or directory
make[2]: *** [_modinst__] Error 1
