sound issue


It seems I can't get the sound to work, and i have no idea what the commands are, i have learned this far that i should use modprobe.

But how ? what more then modprobe ?

I tried modprobe * and it tells me it can't locate loadlin16c.zip
So i checked and i have that file in root, should it be somewhere else ?

Any help is appreciated.

find out what sound chipset you have.
lspci
or
cat /proc/pci
will usually list such things.
look on the web for what modules or necessary to
load for that chipset, and find instructions for that.

or

download the alsa stuff, and use alsa-config, following
the instructions on the alsa website.

ok, so you should be using the es1371 sound module, I think.
Try to see with lsmod if it is there.
If not try modprobe es1371 so that it installs all the needed modules and dependencies.
Do you have any error ? Ie modules missing in the kernel.
Do you have some utility soft like sndcfg, sndconfig (soundconfig stuff), even some wavplay soft if not, to try a sound ?

Do you have any audio stuff that could cause a "conflict", like a usb webcam with a microphone... if then rmmod all modules related to usb (uhci, etc.) and try again to play a sound.

Can you show us the lsmod and lspci output, if this doesn't work ?

Good luck
