Cool Audio Drivers for Crystal cs4299 on Fedora Core 5 (Red Hat 9)

I wasnīt too sure about the whole sbin/lspci thing, so maybe if I just ask about the following: I am having trouble figuring out how to get Fedora Core 5(Red Hat Enterprise) to detect my Crystal cs4299 sound card to work.

I also figured that it may not have detected it because it is onboard, so who knows. I found the driver on Hewlett Packardīs website, but it is only an executable file, and since I have yet to figure out how to get executables to run on my o.s., this user shall be stuck, haha.

Anyway, if anyone can help, it would be super appreciated! :-)

re: Audio Drivers for Crystal cs4299 on Fedora Core 5

Hi, this is my first post here, so forgive any diplomatic errors?

I used to run two Dell computers with those Crystal csxxxx chips for sound. The easy way I got them working (none ever did out of the box, sigh) was to run either sndconfig (used to come with RH, may still be on fedora, or you can just download it). If that failed, the much more robust alsaconf (also an easy download) would always find my sound and get it running easy peasy, bob's yer uncle. This has, by the way, worked on most distros,not just fedora/rh, for anyone in need of this solution.

I hope this helps, the forum has helped me a lot, I'd be thrilled if I could do something here for someone else.

Good luck, Steve
