No sound with GA-8IPE 1000 Pro motherboard


Help plz!

I recently upgraded to a GA-8IPE 1000 Pro motherboard (fried a capacitor on my old one) and after boot-up discovered I had no sound. I got the error message: "Couldnt open mixer device /dev/soundl/mixer." On shut down I noticed the following: "module sound-slot-0, sound-service-0-3 not found."

I looked into /dev and found two files "mixer and mixer1 (both of zero k)", but no /dev/sound/mixer directory.

My motherboard has a built-in sound card: "Realtek AC'97 Audio (Realtek Semiconductor.) Location: PCI Bus0, device 31, function 5. Driver: 8/15/03, 5.10.0.5300 (as per WinnersXP, which is on hda of a dual boot sys.) I'm running RH Linux 9.0 , kernel 2.4.20-31.9.

I told GigaByte I didn't do MicroSoft and they told me they didn't do Linux. I replied that they just lost a customer. They did direct me to RealTek whos web-site wanted info regarding the sound card chip-set which I had no idea what it was asking for.

Has anyone had a similar problem? Ten karma points for your kind assistance. philtr

from linux issue /sbin/lspci -v from a terminal, that info should report the chipset of the soundcard if it is on the pci bus. once armed w/that info, someone here can help you find support if it exists.

from a terminal as root issue

modprobe i810_audio

if that doesn't work have a look in lib/modules/yourkernelversion/kernel/drivers/sound you'll be looking for i810, when you locate the appropriate module, modprobe it. then add it to your etc/modules.conf.

alias sound_slot_0 module name

if the module loads, then you'll need to run a mixer and unmute your sound. these instructions are for the oss modules. you may however choose to go the alsa route. to do this (i'm not sure if redhat 9.0 comes w/alsa)

from a terminal as root issue

alsaconf, if it is succesful it should find your card and allow you to configure it. if it is not have a look here

http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc...odule=intel8x0

if alsaconf goes alright, then you'll want to run

alsamixer, unmute your volume and set default levels then run

alsactl store to save the settings across a reboot. hope something here gets you going.
good luck.

Hmmm...got problems.

I get the following error with the command "modprobe i810_audio": "Kernel requires old modprobe, but couldn't run modprobe.old: no such file or directory."

I ran this command both as user (as 'su' in terminal mode) and root with same results.

RH must have stripped-out some functionality when it came out with 9.0. philtr

Yes, there is a file "i810_audio.o" (32.6k) in: /lib/modules/2.4.20-31.9/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o.

I looked for modprob and found it in "/sbin/modprobe" but, it only pointed to "insmod" (which was the same size (142.7k) and in the same directory (/sbin).) Neither modprobe nor insmod had extensions. philtr

Same sad song! This could get damn depressing if I weren't such an optimist! Heheh! Logging out and doing it as 'root' will take a bit as I have four workspaces in use at the moment. philtr

aight, the module isn't loaded unless it's compiled in the kernel, my guess is no, so now as

su -

try

modprobe i810_audio

post the results.

-bash-2.05b# modprobe i810_audio
/lib/modules/2.4.20-31.9/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.20-31.9/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-31.9/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20-31.9/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o: insmod i810_audio failed
-bash-2.05b#

Looks like the module didn't load. philtr
