Have you moved the soundcard to a different slot and given it a try? Also, have you double-checked to make sure that your soundcard module is loaded?

lsmod

will provide you with all your installed modules. If you don't see it, run as root:

modprobe via82cxxx_audio

This should get it loaded for you if via82cxxx_audio is the correct module name. Let us know what happens on both of these and please post any error messages.

BTW, I tried to get a hold of you with Gaim last night, but I don't know if you received any messages--it didn't seem like you were online at the time.

You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg

try this boot option in the kernel line of grub, or the append line for lilo. Or at the boot promt.

pci=biosirq

then reconfigure your card with sndconfig
check the output of dmesg after bootup

dmesg | less

I have been having exactly the same problems. No sound with any RH 7.2 7.3 or 8.0 install. Finds the onboard sound card but has the same errors. I keep getting told to install the latest ALSA drivers but I have not had any luck with them. I have installed Mandrake 9.0 on a different partition and it all works perfectly.

There has to be an easy way for us dumb bums to do this.

I have the same problem with RH8 and a Soundblaster Live 5.1 card (which I'm assuming is very common). Watching this thread with interest and will try some of the suggestions this evening.

Sometimes I get a message on boot which reads something like "Failed to initialise sound, the sound server will continue running to output 0". Or something

Oddly when I run Knopix off CD, it works fine

Well guys, I figured out the problem. You cant use a onboard sound card. I figured out that it doesnt work with it, so I installed a sound card from my old computer and now I have great sound. And now I am professional music guy.

recompile your kernel with VIA sound support built in.

Why should this be needed? If redhat can detect the sound card when installing why doesn't it configure the kernel correctly and load any modules that need it? Mandrake 9.0 seems to do it perfectly.

Sorry to harp on the one point but it seems that the supposed biggest and best in the linux field is heading down the MS path. We will look after the big guys that can throw heaps of money at us. They are forgetting that not everyone out there is a configuration wizard.

PS. When I compiled VIA support into my 2.4.19 kernel with RH7.2 it had no effect at all.

I'm sure they would like to hear about it.

You should report it so support for your hardware can be fixed.

Lightbulb Just got it!

Hello everyone. I've recently switched to Linux also. I have the VT8233 AC97 Audio Controller, with the via82cxxx_audio driver. These people have the driver that is now allowing me to listen to my cd
http://www.opensound.com/install_gzipped.html I hope it works for you!

fwiw, installing a driver for my usb modem solved my sound problem (the modem was wrongly identified as an audio device)..

..didn't actually get the modem working, but, hey ho...
