Pleasure ... have you got any information
to add that might aid us in supporting you?

Like e.g. make and model of motherboard?
Output of
lspci -v
?


Cheers,
Tink

I install the Slackware Linux 9.0 last month and
I got problems on its onboard sound card which
doesn't work at all ...
My motherboard is a cloned P4 1.7 Ghz
I used the KDE GUI and when it start
it prompts something like ...
it can't detect the on board sound card
but I can use my cdrom to plug my speaker

What is this command

lspci -v




I am a part-time user of Slack 8.1 but I find it difficult on Slack 9.0

Can you tell me whats new on Slack 9.0
and other advance command on linux ?

lspci lists everything attached to the pci bus of your computer (literally list pci).

The -v switch tells it to use a verbose format (you could also do lspci -vv which would give you a very verbose output, or just lspci which will just tell you what's attached where).

By posting the output of lspci -v here we'll be able to give you specific information about your soundcard.

Cheers
Amos

Amos has described it quite well,
but as a Slack user you should be
able to try
Code:
man lspci
which would have answered your question
immediately ...

If you still don't know what man does,
open a terminal and try
Code:
man man
If man for a given command doesn't return
anything, try
Code:
apropos <command>
If that returns with empty hands, have a go at
http://www.google.com/linux and enter <command>
as the search-term.


Cheers,
Tink

P.S.: The fact that you don't even know the make and
model of your motherboard can't be accredited to Linux ;)

hello, I happen to have a similar problem.

My mobo came with an onboard sound card (VIAP4X266A), it works fine on the other distro I have installed (RH9) however it seems to not be recognized on my Slackware installation (Slack 9.1).

What I did so far was to head to the sound and multimedia section of the control center (I were using KDE) and chose to test the sound. Currently selected was ALSA. I think I also tried choosing other devices on the list but came up with no sound. I've already also checked the volume control and the volume of my speaker hardware (a pair of amplified ones).

silly me, I overlooked the warnings ALSA was giving me during bootup. It mentions about running alsamixer to initialize it then alsastore to store the settings. I just might go try that.

lspci -v is intended only for pci slots
What I mean is that my sound card is built in with my mother board
so how can anybody solve that ???

So is mine, but it is still recognised by lspci -v, since it emulates a seperate soundcard installed in a pci slot.

For instance running lspci -v as a non-root user on my laptop gives me many bits of output, but the following is the built-in sound card:

Code:
00:02.7 Multimedia audio controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS7012 PCI Audio Accelerator (rev a0)
        Subsystem: CLEVO/KAPOK Computer: Unknown device 2263
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 173, IRQ 10
        I/O ports at 1c00 [size=256]
        I/O ports at 1800 [size=128]
        Capabilities: <available only to root>
If in doubt post all of the output and we'll sort it out.

Cheers
Amos
