Sound Driver for Dell Integrated Audio Chipset?


Does anyone know where to find the driver for the Dell Integrated Audio Chipset for linux? I'm running slackware 10.1, and also need help modifying my system to support the audio...

You might try to see if this can work for you I don't know what kind of onboard audio you have posting lspci would help.

Thanks for the "foolish" advice and everyone's help!!! Rufous rocks again.

Here is how I got the sound card in my Dell 400sc to work. The motherboard is an Intel 875PBZ (AD1980 integrated audio). I am using the stock box from Dell with no modifications... well except that I am running Fedora Core 1 (which they consider an "unsupported" platform). They only support Red Hat 9. I tried messing with some ALSA drivers I found for RH9 at one of their asia download site, but got no where. The documentation was horrible and very sparse.

There is no regular sound out from the internal speaker. Also the stereo speaker out jack is the middle one of the three audio jacks on the back. There is no standard "headphones" icon as I am used to seeing.

I followed the steps for the alsa setup at http://foolish.digitalinc.info/docs/alsa/ It was an excellent, clear guide.

The one problem I had was when going to alsa-project.org to get the right parameters for modules.conf as suggested by http://foolish.digitalinc.info/docs/alsa/ in the setup guide.

At the alsa-project pages the "details" page for the Intel i810 takes you to the 820 page. I guessed around at the URL and finally found it at http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc...odule=intel8x0

Executive Summary... Read these pages :-)

It's in the /usr/bin on my system. Typing whereis,locate or find <filename> will often give you the location of what you are looking for. To use lspci just type lspci.

hmm. "locate" doesn't work on my machine. I get the error "warning: locate: could not open database: /var/lib/slocate/slocate.db: No such file or directory." file doesn't exist in /usr/bin

Try asking in the Slackware specific forum.

You need to create that file first.
Code:
touch /var/lib/slocate/slocate.db
ls -l /var/lib/slocate
If it works you should see the slocate.db file, and it will have a size of zero bytes. Then, you need to run updatedb as root
Code:
updatedb
That may take a few minutes. That should do it. -- J.W.
