Asus P4PE Built in sound card
I have a Asus P4PE system board. It has an AC97 sound card built into the mother board. It does not work under redhat 9. The contents of my
/etc/modules.conf and lspci relating to the sound card are listed below. Any help getting it working would be great. It works fine when my wife boots into XP ...... ouch

alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 usb-uhci
alias eth0 bcm4400
alias sound-slot-0 i810_audio
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1
|| :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 |

i810_audio seems aliased right, is the module loaded?


and see if its in there.... Also, this sometimes creeps up, check through your mixer to see if the kid isn't muted by default. Also, if its got multiple outputs, check the other port, Winders and Linux sometimes scan outputs in opposite directions.

I have the exact same problem. Same MB, same OS, same listings in modules.conf and with lspci.

I remember having the same problems with RH8, and finally got sound in the left channel - if I plugged the speaker-jack in the mic-plug, really weird. I also remeber struggeling with the ALSA driver and with the OSS driver, but without any results. I finally gave up and bought a new soundcard :(

I've been looking at, not tried, the ALSA drivers again, but they do not seem to have evolved since my last try.

I would also be very interested in any news or experiences, working or not, regarding this problem.

btw: I have got the module loaded, and the mixer is not muted.

Here is the output of lsmod.

As Keldsen pointed out, you might just want to switch up to Alsa, heck, they're in the dev kernel and are going to be the standard soon.

"dmesg" might shed some more light on the problem, might not...

Basically it looks like everything is working fine, so it might be in software, it might just be that the i810 driver is inadequate for the rev of the card you have on board.

There have been a lot of i810 upgrades in the past few kernel revisions, maybe a step up to 21-rc2 would help, maybe not.
