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.

I to am having problems with what I believe to be the same onboard sound card, and I also run Slackware 8.1. I don't know much about linux, and would really like to get some sound soon. Any help is appreciated. Please try to explain as simply as possible.
That chip uses the the via82cxxx module so "modprobe via82cxxx_audio" will load it and the needed dependent modules.
Uncomment the module in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules to have it load at boot. You might also need to adjust the permissions on /dev/audio*, /dev/dsp*, /dev/midi*, /dev/mixer* and /dev/srquencer*, and check that the volume is not muted in kmix.
Thank you! Buy using Modprobe via82cxxx_audio I can get my sound working. I looked in my rc.modules but found no mention of the driver, so I have to modprobe every time. Oh well. Thanks anyways, I am just happy to have the sound. Also thanks for the link to the new driver, I will have to check it out.
