Realtek ALC650 AC97 On-Board Sound


I got a gigabyte GA-7AX motherboard from which i use the onboard sound chip, the Realtek ALC650 AC97 6-channel codec chip. This sound chip/card has been recognized by Red Hat, SUSE and Debian. So far mandrake is no dice. Any idea on how to get this to work? Anyone else had this problem?

(It isnt choppy sound or FUBAR sound, theres just none at all)

No Sound

I also have the AC 97 on-board sound in my Dell machine. I am trying Freespire out running live on the disk. If I install it will the sound work then? If you couldn't tell I am new to Linux, but want to learn. Thanks for any help.

if it works on a live distro, and the distro has the same packages upon install, then it'll work when installed.

Well it doesn't work now! Is there any settings that I should change or check? Drivers for Linux, maybe?

Download the proper version (and install) and you should be good to go.
