Need Help with snd-via82xx
Wife's not too happy that I replaced XP with Mandrake 9.1, so please help me out of the dog house. I'm a newbie and still need help with some basics, so please explain well.

Mandrake is defaulting to snd-via82xx driver for the sound card. However I get no sound. Yes the speakers are on.
In KDE/Aumix I unmuted all sliders and set all the levels to 100%. Ran "aumix -q" to see that the settings are showing 100%.

Also ran /sbin/lsmod and see the module there, but it says it's used by 0. Is that my problem? If so, how do I change that?

I've got to get gaim to play sounds!

Thanks in advance.

nope, that's not yer problem. Here's mine:

es1371 29000 0
soundcore 6276 0 [es1371]
ac97_codec 12488 0 [es1371]
gameport 3316 0 [es1371]

Do apps like XMMS play or error?

I need a little more information, is your soundcard actually a via82xx chipset?

Yes? Try your ALSA or OSS configs:
configuration > KDE > sound > sound system
mdk control center > hardware > harddrake

also, unlike me, try checking connections, etc... BEFORE playing with the settings!
