no sound on kernel 2.4.20


Hi,
I just freshly installed Evil Entity Linux on my box last night. Every worked very well. However, I am getting no sound. I'm pretty sure that the name of my sound hardware is called "Realtek AC93". I've tried searching the hollowed halls of linuxquestions.org, searching for a solution, but couldn't find one. By the way, this is integrated sound.

Here is the output from lspci:
Code:
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corp. 82845G/GL [Brookdale-G] Chipset Host Bridge (rev 03)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corp. 82845G/GL [Brookdale-G] Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 03)

02:0a.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 MX420] (rev a3)
02:0b.0 Communication controller: Lucent Microelectronics LT WinModem (rev 02)
Thanks in advance.

EDIT:
Here is the output from lsmod:

you're module for sound isn't loaded up.

try typing modprobe intel_8x0(i think that's the right module) or intel8x0

I tried modprobe intel_8x0 and intel8x0, they both did not work. They both came up with modprobe: Can't locate module intel8x0.

i810audio? have a look in your /lib/modules/(kernel-version)/kernel/driver/audio
for the right name

I believe the proper module is snd-intel8x0. That said, I think you'll have better luck, if you get the snd module loaded first.
good luck.

ok, if you're using alsa - this will not work; this is the oss module.

1. load the modules (become root)
modprobe (the_intel_audiomodule_without_".o")

2. run "lsmod" to verify the modul is loaded.

3. check that the volume is turned up (rexima, mixer,...)

4. verfy that /dev/dsp (the soundcard) is working
cat some_short_audio.wav > /dev/sdp

5. add your users to group audio and make /dev/dsp group audio. now it should work for users too.

6. if everything works right add a line with your module to /etc/modules (they get loaded at bootup).

ls mritch.
