Which version of ALSA did you install?

Have you read all the info on www.alsa-project.org ? Even the how-to relative to your sound card?

Have you unmuted your sound card using any mixer?

unmuting won't do any good when he can't modprobe it.

Look at the output from the make install again, see if there were any errors. Other than that, you're going to have to give us more info.

the output is fine:

$ make all
...stuff... (no errors)

ALSA modules were successfully compiled.

$make install
..stuff... (no errors)
the last msg's are:

fi
cat WARNING

WARNING!!! The mixer channels for the ALSA driver are muted by default!!!
**************************************************************************
You would use some ALSA or OSS mixer to set the appropriate volume.

$ ./snddevices
..stuff... (no errors)

thx for your answers

I think you're using the wrong install options. It looks like you're using the CT4700 instructions when I think you need the CT5880 instructions. It's 2 rows below the one you used in the sound card matrix.

I guess you're using redhat 9 or a distro with a similar problem when compiling the alsa-drivers.
I'm currently using alsa-driver-0.9.7. try this out: Run configure with the --disable-verbose-printk option, this should help, i.e.
./configure --disable-verbose-printk
and proceed as before.

After making the driver there is a shell script you need to run to make the sound devices. It should be in the same directory that your ALSA sources came in.

Hope this helps.

BongFish, he's already done that.

AlbseN, it may be worth making a script that installs it for you like I have done. All I type is alsa-install and the script does the rest. I just go and get a drink or something.

Yeah possibly wrong driver. I try Soundblaster 128 PCI (CT5880) ES1373 as suggested by adz then if that fails try the Soundblaster PCI 128 ES1371.

You also have to unload any sound modules as well... for instance

/sbin/rmod i810_audio
/sbin/rmmod ac97_codecs

well run:
./configure

then:

make

then:

make install

It is best to Follow the ALSA instructions for your driver to the "T"
