Sound on a Dell Latitude Cpt-C


I've just installed Gentoo 1.4 on a Dell Latitude Cpt-C laptop. It has a Neomagic Corporation NM2360 [MagicMedia 256ZX Audio] soundcard and it detects just fine, my problem is that I have absolutely no idea on how I can get some sound out of my speakers I haven't got a lot of knowledge about linux. It appears that sound support isn't supported by kernel? I used genkernel to compile the kernel.

Go back and use the acpi kernel and you'll be fine. Or go back and compile a new acpi kernel and you'll be fine. This is in your laptop specs and also all over these forums in hundreds of posts. Search features work well for this.

Then could you give me the URL to a relevant thread? You don't know how to implement acpi with genkernel?

You either compile the kernel. WITH, acpi. Or you run and install from the kernel, WITH, acpi, to begin with. If you didnt compile or start out with it its not there.
