Angry RH 7.2 and Integrated Audio

Can someone tell me how to get the audio to run? I get the following message:

Error while initilizing sound driver.
Device /dev/dsp can't be opened (Device or resource busy)

I have had this problem with past versions on Linux and alsa drivers have worked, but not this time. Any other suggestions?

Mentioning which sound card you have and which driver you are trying to use might be helpful.

True As I mentioned it is integrated/onboard audio and the brand is SoundMAX. Linux is using the defult i810 driver.
