The SIS 7012 should be covered by the i810_audio module, what happens when you:

/sbin/modprobe i810_audio

If you search this site for postings containing the phrase 7012 you should find a thread started by me entitled something like No sound with SiS 7012 Onboard Sound.

In there towards the end are the steps I had to go through to get Sound working. Depending on your board, there is a simpler method which does not involve a kernel recompile, reading the various threads should give you some idea.

I've just swapped to Slack 9.0, and have compiled Kernel 2.4.21 after applying the acpi patch and the pre-empt patch, and I now have sound as root without doing anything further than enabling all of the acpi options and disabling apm.

I know that I've now got to change the privileges for access to DSP, which is what I'd logged on to do when I noticed your post.

Hope this helps, I'd advise going for the simpler option I mentioned above first, before you recompile the kernel.

Actually try this first it might work:

I haven't tried it myself, but Diode's suggestion might be some good.

I knew it was there somewhere.

To allow myself as a normal user to get the sound working when it was already working as root I had to

log in as root, and in a shell type:

chmod 666 /dev/dsp


chmod 666 /dev/mixer (Otherwise I couldn't alter volumes etc)
