Which kernel version are you using??? I found that upgrading the kernel to 2.4.21 (from 2.4.20 which comes with slackware9) and customising it to include AC97 sound support worked. Check out http://www.kernel.org for source and info

Don't mind me(as i jump in), but i have the same question i had just found a work around(benq cdrw has a headphone jack).
This is my output:
Code:
00:14.5 Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C686 AC97 Audio Controller (rev 20)
        Subsystem: Compaq Computer Corporation: Unknown device 003d
        Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 10
        I/O ports at 2000 [size=256]
        I/O ports at 24b0 [size=4]
        I/O ports at 24b4 [size=4]
        Capabilities: [c0] Power Management version 2
What's your output trinux?
{edit}
There is no module to load to get this kind of support in 2.4.18(if i'm correct by looking '/etc/rc.d/rc.modules') Buuuuut this
and the post above above helped.

trinux,

I think you can solve all your problems as I mentioned by upgrading and customizing your kernel to version 2.4.21. I know this sounds awkward just to get sound working, but if you follow the guidelines fixed at the top of the board then its really not that hard, and is in fact probably easier than installing the ALSA drivers.

I had the same problem after installation (i.e. onboard ac97 sound card, but no drivers or sound support), and simply upgrading the kernel sorted the problem first try. It also allowed me to include high memory support as I had 1GB of Ram , but the default kernel only supports ~896Mb, as well as choosing the correct processor architecture i686 instead of the generic ix86.

It would also give you a chance to get used to upgrading & customizing your kernel for future use, and if you the instructions at under the thread "Kernel compiling guide for newbies..." it really is a breeze.

HTH

Neil
