Strange Sound Device Problem


Perhaps someone here can help me. I recently wiped slack 9.1 from a Compaq Evo desktop system that has an internal i810 soundcard. This card worked fine under slack, using alsa. Now I put RH9 on (don't get me started) and it uses OSS drivers for this card. Now I can hear sound just fine from the speaker, but when I plug in headphones no sound comes out of the headphones...it continues to come from the speaker. This box is on my desk at work and I cannot obviously play music like this because it will disturbs colleagues. Does anyone have a solution to this dilema (cannot wipe and reinstall slack, so something OTHER than that solution please).

Any help is greatly appreciated...

G'day mate!
Where did you get the alsa drivers from?
I'm having trouble with my internel via soundchip... also, no sound from the PC speakers

Hello Kenji1903,

I obtained everything from http://www.alsa-project.org/ and just compiled. No problems at all.

Good Luck...

Cheers stingx!

I've tried compiling the ALSA drivers following a mini-how-to on this site... kind of ran into this problem at the final stage:
"alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device"

I'm still trying to find out why, anyway, thanks for your reply
