Asus P4PE Mobo sound problem (have AD1980) & configuration problem
Hi, linux lovers.
I got a new box and installed Linux 9.0 then all the trouble start happen. Since I had an old machine, linux never gave me any problem with driver issue. Especially, a sound card and a nic card.
I have found number of good articles by google, including this website. I found sound card issue in this website with same mobo, but unable to solve the problem yet. I downloaded newest version of ALSA-driver(0.9.2), util, and whatever is there and I was able to run alsamixer. I changed all the volume level and tried green and red port as well, but still no sound. Can someone tell me what I supoose to do now and those of you who installed the driver succesfully can send me your moudles.conf. Also can someone send me the .config file, since I have trouble upgrading kernel. I always have a trouble doing configuration.
I was able to install the nic driver, but everytime when I restart the machine I have to configure the eth0 again by manually. Isn't there a way that can be loaded automatically?
I just setup my P4PE w/alsa 0.9.2 too. The AD1980 chip works just fine.
Assuming you installed the alsa driver/lib/tools/utils already, here's the alsa stuff I use in my /etc/modules.conf:
alias char-major-116 snd
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
# restore mixer settings from /etc/asound.state
post-install snd-intel8x0 /usr/sbin/alsactl restore
# Save mixer settings to /etc/asound.state
pre-remove snd-intel8x0 /usr/sbin/alsactl store
# prevent syslog messages

alias sound-slot-1 off
alias sound-service-1-0 off
alias sound-service-1-1 off

I have the Fast Ether (not Giga Ether) version of the P4PE and it has a Broadcom 4401 10/100 chip on it. I just compiled the BCM4400 module on the Asus cd and loaded that module too. All in all, the board seems quite nice. My BogoMIPS are up to 4797, so I'm happy so far.
OH BTW, one big thing to remember with alsa -- by default everything is MUTED when you start it up. You must raise the volume AND unmute with whatever mixer you decide to use.
I am having problems getting my sound to work on same mobo with suse 8.2. I was going to alter the modules.conf file as suggested and then the /etc/rc.d/rc.modules file but i don't have one. I have the directory structure but not that particular file.
When configuring in yast2 i get
The kernel module snd-intel8x0 for sound supportcould not be loaded. This can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
Which seems reasonable but I have no idea how to set them or what they should be (pref GUI as i am only 2 days into this)
