soundcard not working in redhat 8


i am using redhat linux 8 in my P3 machine with mercury motherboard.

My intel onboard sound card (CMI8738 PCI) is not working after i got my mother board repaired.It was working fine before and it is working fine with windows 98 (i am having win 98 and redhat in dual booting environment). when i try to open any application using sound card i get the message "can not open /dev/dsp, devise is busy"

Since i have not installed any new hardware or any other changes has not been made, i can not understand why sound card is not working now.

i can not find out any IRQ conflict , here is the result of lspci -vv

Somebody please help me....

Try alsamixer, kmix, or aumix, and be sure sound is not muted.
good luck.
