I went poking around on this one for a long time, and its just another i810 clone:

/sbin/modprobe i810_audio (as root)

Then check to see if you have a mixer in KDE or Gnome that see's the card.

Cheers,

This is a little odd now... let's first make certain you actually have an SiS 7012, what's the output from:

/sbin/lspci

As regards to "Multimedia Controller"?

Just type 'lspci' from the bash terminal, no ''s obviously.

Its completely possible that Mandrake, in their infinite wisdom, took a 1k binary like lspci out of the default install, this does the same thing, it just takes all the info unproccessed:

cat /proc/pci

This is weird, this is the second time I've seen an SIS 7012, not working when it should. The i810_audio module has been hacked up to accomodate for it.

Maybe Mandrake did something so screwy with 9.0 that it won't install anything right but alsa, but go ahead and try:

modprobe i810_audio

See what happens.

Cheers,

Finegan

I have the same problem with asus P4S8X-X...
I can't load the i810_audio module. after i check with command 'dmesg' and found out the i810_audio using IRQ 0,
which is not correct.

so, in case to correct that, I used command 'modprobe i810_audio irq=18' , where irq=18 is i get from win XP.
but it doesn't not work, warning message show up that the module doesnt not accept irq parameter. it seem modules cant be configure using parameter 'irq=18' .

any idea how to solve it?

Hi there,

I have successfully activate the SiS7012 in my Linux box.

The trick is you have to disable the plug & play OS in BIOS. then linux will able to detect itself. the soundcard by passing correct IRQ to it.

Hi ykchew!
I'm new in Linux.

I have a motherboard just like yours (p4s8x-x), and I couldn't have sound either. I've done what you said and it worked. Now i've installed Mandrake 9.1 and the sound works... only have one problem.

The sound instead of coming out from the speaker exit, it comes from the microphone entrance.

Can you or anybody help me with this? It's really annoying having to change the speaker plug every time I use a diferent O.S...

Thanks a lot!

Ricardo.

strange audio..

Hello,

I have the asus P4S8X-X motherboard with an Audiofile M-Audio soundcard installed.

All works fine apart from the sound, both internal and whilst playing CDs is choppy and even slows down occationally, like it's struggling to keep up with it.

I have been told that my IRQ settings are all over the place.

Does anyone know how to change your IRQs and where I should put my soundcard for optimum performance (I run a home music studio)

thank you,
Darren

Maybe check the manufacturer's web page I know ASUS writes redhat linux drivers. You may want to check there.
