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.

Well, I thought I installed the drivers right, and it seemed to work fine. Now when I enter KDE, the sound is crakely or just stops in the middle of the wav file. Also, midi files don't work at all. I can't try CD music as a troubleshooter since there isn't a 'CD_IN' on the motherboard. Is their a way in KDE or Debian to where it reads from the IDE cable, instead of the audio output?
Also, the audio driver was built in the kernel, and is added.
Here's what I found in my 2.2.19 box's modules collection under /lib/modules/2.2.19/misc/
I have no idea which one it is... try insmod'ing them all would probably work. I also don't remember if Deb made Soundcore part of the kernel or left it as a module, so you may need to insmod that first. I'm pretty sure the kernel is new enough for this codec.
Ok, I have all those installed already. I'm trying to troubleshoot my sound. The i810_audio is the built-in sound, and installs AC97_codecs with it. The i810 is the video driver, and the i810_rng is the random number generator. Could the OSS system be causnig this problem? I think it is installed. It's a choice in KDE at least. Do I need the OSS or ALSA at all? Or can it run off the kernel without them? I'm going to switch to the 2.4.17 kernel. I think that will help some of my problems.
Aside from conflicting mixer settings... if all of the modules are load right, then yeah probably a kernel upgrade would make sense.
Alsa is a different entire set of kernel modules you could use instead of the regular kernel modules. It would require a recompile of the kernel with only soundcore, and then compiling alsa against the new kernel.
