you may want to go the alsa route, it could be that the older version of the i810 module doesn't support the newer card, alsa should have a newer driver, have a look at post #4 the link there will take you to the alsa install page for instructions.
good luck.

Been there and downloaded and set up in /home/philtr/Sound:

alsa-driver-1.0.5a
alsa-firmware-1.0.4
alsa-oss-1.0.5
alsa-utils-1.0.5
alsa-driver-1.0.5a.tar.bz2
alsa-lib-1.0.5
alsa-tools-1.0.5
TkAlsaMixer.tgz

Didn't seem to run into any problems untill I got to "alsa-driver-1.0.5a" I got the following output:

-bash-2.05b# ./configure

Please, install the package with full kernel sources for your distribution
or use --with-kernel=dir option to specify another directory with kernel
sources (default is /lib/modules/2.4.20-31.9/build).

At this point I got a bad headache and decided to give 'it' a break. philtr

sorry about the headache, hope that gets better, when you get back to it, you need to install the kernel source rpms, they should be on the cd if you haven't upgraded your kernel, if you have upgraded the kernel, you'll need to get the sources for the upgraded version, they have to match.
good luck.

That's the hitch. I was using RH's "update" utility to up-date the kernel. After snooping around in my directory tree, I came to realize that they never installed the source code when up-dating only the binaries.

I half-heartedly did try to find a kernel tarball. I never got past RH. Their web site was not real helpful in pointing me to the kernel source. At least its (the tarball) location was not real obvious.

I'm coming to realize RH is doing a similar marketing lock-in ploy as MicroSoft. I'm trying to free myself by upgrading using other websites like SourceForge.

So any suggestions where I can get the source for kernel: 2.4.20-31.9 (kerneltrap?)? Another program I'm look for is "yum." I've read some about it but, have not made a concerted effort to locate and install it. philtr

Ran into a problem.

I downloaded "kernel-2.4.20-31.9.src.rpm" and copied it to "/home/philtr/install" where I usually install all my stuff from.

RH Linux 9.0 Bible sayith to useth the command: "rpm -iv kernel-2.4.20-31.9.src.rpm" Halaluja! Praise the Lord!! Can I get a witness!?!?

I was promised (Sweet Jesus!!) that this here package would be installed into: "/usr/src/redhat" (Halaluja, can I get a witness!?!?, Praise the Lord!) which it seems to have done. At least when I ventured to yunder trove, I did find among other things "usr/src/redhat/SPECS" and even "BUILD."

I was told to go forth, fearlessly (saying unto you of weak minds and strong backs!!) speak such wits of wisdom as: "cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS" and witness loudly (Praise the Lord, Halaluja! Sweet Jesus, can I get a witness!?!?) the following: "rpm -bp kernel-2.4.20-31.9.spec"

Balsphmy!!, I was chastened. Blasphmy! Know not ye that: "-bp: unknown option," it laughingly taunted me. ("libdvdread.spec" was off cowering in a corner. terrified that it would be sent to the null zone and would have to get financially straight with the lord.)

Seriously tho, I didn't recognize the "-bp" switch and when I went looking in "info rpm " found only are crypitc use of it which I couldn't fathom the use of: "rpm exec --bp rpmb -bp"

So plz, what command should I use to install the source into: "/usr/src/redhat/BUILD" directroy? Thanks for your patience. philtr

sorry for the misunderstanding, the rpm you've downloaded and installed is used to build a binary of the kernel. you'll need to download this rpm

kernel-source-2.4.20-31.9.i386.rpm

and install it, there is some info and available download here.

http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2004-166.html

good luck.

alsa-driver-1.0.5a seemed to install w/o any problems after the kernel source code was installed (I don't know if the source being for an 'i386' when I have an 'i686' matters.) At least no nasty messages appeared after it was finished being installed.

I then ran "alsaconf" and got the following error messages: "No supported PnP or PCI card found" and "No legacy drivers found"

Bummer. Of course my sound card is built-in to the mother board. I looked at all supported cards at the alsa site. RealTek seems not to be one of them.

Well maybe someone out there is working on a kernel patch for my mother board (GA-8IPE 1000 Pro.) I"m going to leave the good folks at alsa a note asking if anything is in the works.

Why doesn't modprobe work with out first logging in as "su -"?

Any other ideas? Thanks. philtr

modprobe is a system changing command, most of those have to be issued by root, su -, or sudo. other ideas, you could try loading the modules manually w/modprobe again i believe the new module would be snd-intel8x0, it would go like this

su -
password <enter root password>

modprobe snd-intel8x0

if that doesn't work, you might try a reboot, to ensure all services daemons, everything is restarted, then try alsconf again.

Nothing doing. I got the following:

-bash-2.05b# modprobe snd-intel8x0
modprobe: Can't locate module snd-intel8x0

-bash-2.05b# modprobe i810_audio.o
modprobe: Can't locate module i810_audio.o


I'm going to see what I can find at the alsa site. I suspect I'll have to get and install an older PCI sound card. Bummer. Thanks for trying tho. philtr
