Question Redhat 9.0 Sound Problems


I Have Just Installed RedHat 9.0
I am a complete
I dont get any sound.

So i click on soundcard detection i get :-

Vendor: Intel Corp.
Model: 82801BA/BAM AC'97 Audio
Module: disabled

So I press Play Test sound and i get this error message:-

The disabled driver could not be loaded. This soundcard may not be compatible with Red Hat Linux.

I have been to alsa because i heard that you could use that using the i810 driver.

So i start to follow the instructions on the page when i get to

./configure --with-cards=intel8x0 --with-sequencer=yes;make;make install

i type that in the terminal but i get

checking for directory with kernel source... /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/build
checking for kernel version... The file /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/build/include/linux/version.h does not exist.
Please, install the package with full kernel sources for your distribution
or use --with-kernel=dir option to specify another directory with kernel
sources (default is /usr/src/linux).

so the install can go no futhure. can u please tell me any way i can get the sound working.

I believe this card works best with the alsa drivers. www.alsa-project.org

And you can probably search the forum here as this is a common problem with the AC97 soundcard that is embedded in a majority of motherboards.

www.alsa-project.org was off-line today.

Installing the RPM's may be an option for you.
Go to http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.phpd.net/

On the search-line type:

alsa-driver

this should give your the option to download the file

alsa-driver-0.9.2-fr2.i386.rpm

Do the same for

alsa-lib

and for

alsa-utils

This should give you 3 RPM-files which you can install
with

rpm -Uvh <RPM-filename>

(for example: rpm -Uvh alsa-driver-0.9.2-fr2.i386.rpm)

If there are any problems, lemme know

Check permissions on

/dev/dsp
/dev/mixer
/dev/sequencer
/dev/midi

they should all be lrwxrwxrwx

if they aren't, change them with

chmod a+rwx /dev/dsp /dev/mixer /dev/sequencer /dev/midi

Then start alsamixer and use the m-key to unmute master and pcm channels (and others if you wish).

Unhappy I have problem with soundcard too

I just have Redhat Linux 9 installed on a brand new Dell computer with a typical Dell soundcard. However it says something like /dev/mixer [FAILED] during start-up and I cannot use the soundcard. Somehow it cannot be detected. Is there anyway to solve this problem? Thanks.
