[sound config] ATI sound card????


Hi all! I'm having troubles configuring my laptop's soundcard. My laptop is an acer aspire 1624lmi, and in the instruction manual I can't find what kind of chip is installed. So I typed lspci:

Code:
00:00.0 Host bridge: ATI Technologies Inc: Unknown device 5833 (rev 02)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc: Unknown device 5838
00:13.0 USB Controller: ATI Technologies Inc: Unknown device 4347 (rev 01)
00:13.1 USB Controller: ATI Technologies Inc: Unknown device 4348 (rev 01)
00:13.2 USB Controller: ATI Technologies Inc: Unknown device 4345 (rev 01)
00:14.0 SMBus: ATI Technologies Inc: Unknown device 4353 (rev 18)
00:14.1 IDE interface: ATI Technologies Inc: Unknown device 4349
00:14.3 ISA bridge: ATI Technologies Inc: Unknown device 434c
00:14.4 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc: Unknown device 4342
00:14.5 Multimedia audio controller: ATI Technologies Inc: Unknown device 4341
00:14.6 Modem: ATI Technologies Inc: Unknown device 434d (rev 01)

02:03.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Texas Instruments TSB43AB22/A IEEE-1394a-2000 Controller (PHY/Link)
02:04.0 CardBus bridge: Texas Instruments PCI1250 PC card Cardbus Controller (rev 01)
02:04.1 CardBus bridge: Texas Instruments PCI1250 PC card Cardbus Controller (rev 01)
02:05.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM94306 802.11g (rev 03)
02:0a.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
I used alsaconfig to try a compatible sb16 driver, but i'm not be able to do anything.

Please help me, here you are some informations:
Distro: mandrake 10.0 official, kernel 2.6.3
laptop: p4HT 3.4 GHz, 1024 MB ram, you can see the rest in the lspci i've posted.

Thanks

I solved the problem and i'll post here my solution.

In the aspire 1624lmi is installed a classical realtek ac97 chip, so I went to www.realtek.com.tw and downloaded the linux alsa module (or from www.alsa-project.org for the lastest version). Unpack it and follow the readme (configure, make ecc ecc)... when installed, run alsaconfig (obviously all from root console) and it will autodetect the sound card.

Set the volumes with alsamixer and enjoy!

It's very strange that mandrake 10.0 has a default alsa module that can't support realtek ac97 chip...

However I can hear the sound now!!!

Bye!
