Help!! How do I enable the audio driver for the 82801BA/BAM AC'97 Sound Card?


I have just installed Red Hat 9 on my HP Pavilion, but I couldn't figure out how to enable the sound driver for the Intel 82801BA/BAM AC'97 Sound Card. When I used the view mode to see what inside the Modules.conf file, it showed the following lines:

lias usb-controller usb-uhci
alias eth0 e100
options e100 irq=7
alias sound-slot-0 disabled
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :

I also used the SoundCard Detection to detect the hardware and it showed this:

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

Please help!!!

The correct module for the Intel onboard soundchip is snd-intel8x0.

From a terminal try
# modprobe snd-intel8x0
and if this doesn't help, go to the ALSA site and read and follow these
instructions to use the ALSA drivers. I don't know what RedHat uses by default.

You may also have good results by searching LQ for a similar post.

Thanks

I went to that website and read the instruction. The website suggested that I have to recompile the kernel, which I am not familiar with. I will figure it out when I have time. Thanks very much for your help!

How did the website suggest that you recompile the kernel? Is it because it says

Most modern distros come with soundcore compiled as a module. You can check this in numerous ways. The easiest way is to type.

modinfo soundcore

If this command returns that you have this module, then you don't need to recompile your kernel.
Well, here's modinfo soundcore on this box
Code:
root@paul:Tue Jan 27 08:51:10/home/mingdao# modinfo soundcore
modinfo: soundcore: no module by that name found
and I have the same Intel soundchip that I compiled with the ALSA drivers and instructions.
It worked just fine. Now I'm using a SoundBlaster Audigy ES that I compiled
with the ALSA instructions on that site and it works fine.

Hey, why don't you just use those instructions and try it. The worst thing that
can happen is you won't have sound...
