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.

Run harddrake2 in X, and check your card section.. It should provide 2 buttons on lower left Run Config Tool and Configure module... One of them letz you choose the kernel driver (as I recall it's snd-cmipci8738, or just cmipci8738). If that doesn't help, check this out http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=199167... same problem... You should give it a try with the alsaconf.
Try a lsmod and see wether the kernel mdoule you chose is listed there... if not, do a manual modprobe snd-cmipci. I belive snd-cmipci is for the pci version, duuno 4 sure. You said yours is onboard and the module might not see it in the right place. Look for some drivers on the net (maybe on the motherboard CD?)
since it's onboard sound, you might need to run sndconfig. in a terminal as root type sndconfig (hit enter). let it search for your sound device. when it's found, select it, ok it, let it install the necessary drivers, test the sound.
sorry about 2 replies in a row, but I just thought of something!
Would the 2.4 kernel sound drivers work? because I used to be on redhat 9 where this soundcard was picked up straight away. If these sound drivers would work, and someone has them, can you PM me about them?
/dev/dsp should be a hyperlink to /dev/dsp0. Open XMMS, go to config and select the OSS sound module at the Output device. Configure it and choose alternate device. In the box, type /dev/dsp0. If this doesn't work, do a ls -lah /dev/ds* and see what comes up. try all the /dev/dspX listed by ls.
