Sound Recognition on Debian (Knoppix)


Hi everyone....After a brief return to windows I decided to return to the linux community. I am sick of Windows and ready to return with my tail between my legs...
I originally had a Redhat installation but decided because of the slow performance I would go back to Windows, but now I just recently found out about the mini distros and so far I love it!!! I started out with Knoppix 3.4 and decided to do a hard drive install so now I understand that I basically have a Debian system. So here we go...

Knoppix recognizes ALMOST everything flawlessly..I am shocked..It even recognized and configured my 802.11g wireless card.

The ONLY problem I am having with this system is that it won't recognize my sound card and it won't play audio cD'S..

I am running a Compaq Presario 1245 with an ESS 1869 audio card.

The sytem has 160 megs of ram and 3.2 gig hard drive...AMD K6/2 333
Kernel 2.6

As stated I am a newbie to Linux....But am generally pretty good about figuring things out for myself...But am having a heck of a time with this one...Does anyone have any ideas how I can configure my sound card to work with this Debian distro?

Here is a cut/paste of my lspci
sblum@box:~$ lspci
0000:00:00.0 Host bridge: OPTi Inc. 82C701 [FireStar Plus] (rev 32)
0000:00:01.0 ISA bridge: OPTi Inc. 82C700 [FireStar] (rev 31)
0000:00:0a.0 CardBus bridge: Texas Instruments PCI1131 (rev 01)
0000:00:0a.1 CardBus bridge: Texas Instruments PCI1131 (rev 01)
0000:00:12.0 VGA compatible controller: Neomagic Corporation NM2160 [MagicGraph 128XD] (rev 01)
0000:00:13.0 USB Controller: OPTi Inc. 82C861 (rev 10)
0000:00:14.0 IDE interface: OPTi Inc. 82C825 [Firebridge 2] (rev 30)
0000:01:00.0 Network controller: Intersil Corporation Intersil ISL3890 [Prism GT/Prism Duette] (rev 01)
sblum@box:~$


I am hoping for a simple solution...But I know with LInux things can get a little hairy sometimes..

Thanks in advance for any assistance...

Steve

ESS 1869 is an ISA card so it's not going to show up in lspci. What are the contents of dmesg? You could try loading it with modconf. It uses one of the opl3 drivers.

I guess I am using the 2.4 kernel for this particular boot but the 2.6 is available to me at boot time...Neither one of them work..But I usually use the 2.4 kernel because it works better with my mouse....

I hope this helps determine the problem..I really want to get some streaming audio going with this new high speed card....

Thanks for your assistance..

I checked modconf and didnt see my audio driver but I did try the regular sound blaster driver but no luck...
Steve
