What does the command 'lspci' say?

lspci is a root command. You'll need to do the following:

Open a terminal
type "su"
at the prompt, enter the password you have for root

after that, you will be able to run the "lspci" command.

Eh, I was slightly wrong. lspci isn't solely a root command, but it does display more detailed information to root. my bad.

Anyway, it appears that (for some odd reason) lspci is not in your defualt path. On my system its located at /bin/lspci.

If you have it installed, you can do:

slocate lspci

which will pull up the location of lspic on your system.

failing that (which is pretty likely), you can do:

find / -name lspci

Your hard drive will get pretty active at this time, as the find command scans your hard-drive on request, whereas slocate builds a database.

If your computer (for some very strange reason) doesn't have lspci, post again, as we might have larger issues than just your sound

Or (probably) with locate command.

In debian, lspci is found from /bin and from /usr/bin.

If there is no lspci in your system (which is strange and an issue itself), command
Code:
cat /proc/pci
should give somewhat equvalent information.

Use

su -
root password

( su with a space then a dash )

to become Root user with a full Root environment and PATH..... ie root,root

Ok, the souncard you are having has the ensoniq chipset. If I'm correct, the rh9 uses oss by default. So to get your soundcard working, try running
Code:
modprobe es1371
. If there is no error messages, you have installed your soundcard driver succesfully.

Next step is to run a mixer (aumix, gmix, kmix, setmixer or similar), because the volume might be muted by default. Now the sound should work.
