Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

And, this is what I get for modprobe via82cxxx_audio
[root@localhost root]# modprobe via82cxxx_audio
/lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/sound/via82cxxx_audio.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/sound/via82cxxx_audio.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/sound/via82cxxx_audio.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/sound/via82cxxx_audio.o: insmod via82cxxx_audio failed
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.
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.
Originally posted by acid2000 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.

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!
