Question SoundCard AC97 under RedHat 7.1


Hi,

I installed RedHat 7.1 and everything works fine, except the SoundCard. When I look into the HardwareBrowser I can see,
that the SoundCard is somehow detected correct (AC97),
but whenever I start the mixer or any other application I get a "Mixer" error or I do not hear anything.

I have a dualboot system (WinXP and RedHat 7.1), so I know, that the speakers are working.

Has anyone an idea?

Thanks in advance,
Martin.

Look for your kernel version. I have similar sound and it started to work in 2.4.3 (?), I don't remember correctly.

Hi Mara,

Thanks for your help. I looked into /boot directory and found
just filenames with xxxx-2.4.7, so I assume, that this is the
kernel version. Is my assumption correct or is there a command, that tells me the current version.

Have you modified any config-files to get the soundcard to work or was it working, when you updated the kernel??

Thanks and best regards,
Martin.

Hi,

I just unplugged my Webcam (Logitech QuickcamPro 3000) from my USB hub and the it worked.
Is there a problem with USB hubs or with Webcams? Are they not supported?

Regards,
Martin.
