Intel i810 ICH4 sound card


Hi, I'm using Mandrake 9.1 and i have an Intel i810 ICH4 soundcard. I don't know what to do to get it work. I tried to install the last version of ALSA, but I couldn't.
If anybody could help me...
Regards.

... and HOW did you try to install ALSA and did it produce any error messages or otherwise useful output?

In response to the messages

When I tried to install ALSA it printed an error saying that there was an operation not permited (no more information because it didn't say wich operation).
Not sound at all.
Linux knows that there is an Intel i810 ICH4 soundcard in my computer, but no sound exists.

Could it have been during the make install phase? You have to be root to do that. Do everything else as a normal user but run make install as root. After the whole thing is compiled you still have to insert the modules into the kernel, edit your /etc/modules.conf (or /etc/modprobe.conf for 2.6 kernels) to make them get inserted each time you boot and turn up the volume as by default all channels are muted.

Alsa was included with 8.2, so thing also included with 9.1.

look for rpm and for Alsa, will probably be more comfortable.

copy and paste output of dmesg and lsmod .

What kind of sound are you looking for ( system? or are you trying to play something ? )

You probably don't know, but to play a cd with Linux a small cable should be connected from your cd-rom to mother board ( wdz don't need it !! ).


Also, have you sound as Root ?

The more information you give, the best we can help !!

That's not true. There are some programs that need it but some don't XMMS for instance (with the cdread plugin).

I have the c.d. cable that you said plugged. But, for example, when I wan't to play mp3 or a c.d. or when I enter in a website with sounds or everything that include any kind of sound.
The XMMS plays the mp3 but I dont't hear nothing at all, the same happends with a c.d. and the other cases.

Well it looks like the files snd-hwdep.o, snd-page-alloc.o, snd-pcm.o, snd-rawmidi.o, snd-timer.o and snd.o don't exist in the current directory. Are you sure you didn't get any other errors during either ./configure or make?
