Asus Motherboards integrated peripherals -- wtf???


Hi everyone,

I have two machines here in front of me, both brand new and running debian woody 3.0r1. It seems that the integrated ethernet and audio on the motherboards (both Asus, one is a p4c800e-deluxe, the other is an A7NV8X-X) refuses to work on either. I have read up on the A7NV8X NVidia stuff and said fork it, leave it to the customer cuz they chose the hardware and I'm running out of time. But, is there anything I can do to get the AC97 sound card to work? here is some bg info:

user@best1:~$ lspci
...
00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corp.: Unknown device 24d5 (rev 02)
...

B.best1:/home/user# lsmod
Module Size Used by Not tainted
soundcore 3236 0 (autoclean)
parport_pc 25704 0
parport 21728 0 [parport_pc]
raw1394 6384 0 (unused)
ieee1394 23528 0 [raw1394]
ac97_codec 9568 0 (unused)
ac97 2864 0 (unused)
radeon 92472 0 (unused)
keybdev 1664 0 (unused)
usbkbd 2848 0 (unused)
input 3072 0 [keybdev usbkbd]
usb-uhci 20708 0 (unused)
usbcore 48032 0 [usbkbd usb-uhci]

So obviously there's some fine tuning to do, to say the least.

Any help appreciated, TIA

B.

I have an A7N8X deluxe, and my audio and one of my network ports worked out of the box with hotplug and kernel 2.4.22. I added the nforce drivers, and now everything works pretty well, except that mixing isn't so good.

As Zoombie said, try the NForce driver package (on nvidia's site) for the A7NV8X. Native (kernel) support for its NForce2 chipset is sketchy. Not sure about the other mobo.

I have an A7N8X (not deluxe or -X), and I have my ethernet and sound working fine.

CanadianPenguin, what distro are you using? Were the integrated periphs recognised during the install process?

Thanks

B.
