Let it die, Thanks to all who tried to help


I'm running Redhat 8.0 Kernel version 2.4.18 - 17.8.0
The sound card is a dual card it's a Rockwell Riptide combo card with sound/modem. I found drivers for it at www.mbsi.ca/cnxtlindrv, I installed them, but my system still does not recognize the sound. When I do a sound card configuration check it tells me the vendor of my card is Rockwell international, the model is unkown device 127a:4310 and the module is disabled.....does anyone have any thoughts on what might be wrong?? Help would be greatly appreciated....I'm fairly new to linux and enjoying it a lot, but this is a snag I've been trying to fix for some time...

Err ... did you fix it then?
Or were you just bumping the thread? Sarcasm ..?

If it wasn't the first, we'll need more information. What's the chipset on your MOBO? The output of dmesg?

I was bumping the thread with a small bit of sarcasm...I'm working on getting the chipset for the MOBO, I don't know what dmesg is....I'm pretty new to linux...not completely new, but new enough...

just check out whether or not your mobo has the onboard sound.
if so, just kill it by jumper or BIOS.

It doesn't have onboard sound, as I stated above it's a PCI sound card....

Some mobo have cheap onboard sound device incorporated with itself.
If you install an additional sound card, you should turn off the onboard stuff to avoid the hardware conflict.

I know some Mobos have onboard sound, this is the original card with my computer, there is no onboard sound.....it's a rockwell chameleon PCI combo modem/sound card.....I can't find drivers despite some searching.....I guess I'll have to keep looking...

Here you can find a beta Linux driver for Rockwell Chameleon combo card:

The site is in French, you might want to translate it into English here:

Thanks a lot, I'll try installing it shortly when I have a spare moment. Hopefully the drivers will work for the sound part of the card, if not, I might end up resorting to buying a new sound card....

I just tried those last drivers, no sound. The drivers handled the modem part, which I don't need, but they didn't support the sound part of the card. Oh well. I'm going to throw in a new sound card and see if I can get that to work...Thanks to all who tried to help me...it was greatly appreciated..
