Sound driver for a VT82C686 AC97 Audio


I have a (MSI) MS-6378 Motherboard, that has an Apollo KLE133 VIA chipset. I have a VT82C686 AC97 Audio Controller. I am working with a Debian distribution: 2.4.24. My sound right now is very choppy (chirping and incomprehendible).
I found a VIA site, but it doesn't support my distribution; only SuSE 8.2, RedHat 9.0, Mandrake 9.1, and Red Flag 4.0.
The computer came with a driver's disc, but it is designed for Windows, which is not on the system (only Linux). If I mounted that disk, would I be able to copy the driver into Linux?

Are sure that the driver is not present in kernel sources??? cause I've just compiled a 2.4.23 kernel and there is the CONFIG_SOUND_VIA82CXXX option which enables via82cxxx sound driver.

So have you error messages log in /var/log/messages when sound goes wrong? If yes, send me the log and I can try to help you...
Or another solution if you don't want spend time debugging is to install alsa driver (I know that 1.0.1 release has via82cxx driver but I have not already test it). Futher info at: http://www.alsa-project.org/

Grab a copy of the Movix iso and test your system with that.
It's focussed on movie and audio.

I have the same motherboard and it works fine...
