Red Hat 7.1 - Where is the directory for Sound Drivers?


I am trying to get the sound to work on an old Dell Latitude CPi400GT. I have tried to research this a little online, and have visited alsa-project.org.

-I have ran lspci and found the below information:

01:00.1 Multimedia audio controller: Neomagic Corporation NM2360 [MagicMedia 256ZX Audio]

The alsa web site provides the below information.

You must turn on the sound support soundcore module. This is in the kernel. Look in the sound drivers directory and it should be the first option. Most people enable the module setting. That way you can load and unload the module manually if you have multiple soundcards/devices or if you intend to debug or use cutting edge software which may cause your drivers to halt sometimes. Of course it also means you have more control of your system

Most modern distros come with soundcore compiled as a module. You can check this in numerous ways. The easiest way is to type.

modinfo soundcore

If this command returns that you have this module, then you don't need to recompile your kernel.


Can anyone tell me where I can find the sound drivers directory, and or help in turning on the sound support soundcore module?

Thanks,
Badger

I was able to obtain a copy of Fedora Core 1, which was able to pick up my sound card. I am no longer having this problem. Thank you to all who read and looked at my problem
