Question Strange Problem with Intel i810 AC97 audio and RH7.3

Hi, I'm a relative newbie to Linux but I've gotten Red Hat Linux 7.3 installed on my Compaq Presario 1700T. It is working fine as far as video is concerned, but my sound card does not seem to work. Presario 1700T has a Intel i810 AC97 sound output, and according to these pages:


the sound card works right out of the box (but it doesn't for me!!)

From my Hardware Browser under Gnome, the card is recognized. I also tested it with sndconfig but there was no sound coming out during the test sound phase. I even tried command "aumix" and tweaked with the volume, but still, no sound. This is so odd. Anyone have any insights???

Good Day Mate!

Tweaking aumix was a good idea, but since that didn't help much you might want to try kmix under KDE. I've had same problems on serveral different installation and kmix always did the trick for me.

Some install, depending on which distro, the sound server would work right after install (aka out of the box) and some didn't. Even though you're using gnome, kmix should run fine there. Otherwise login in to kde and launch kmix. Let me know what happens.

Thanks for the info! It worked very well! Now I'm able to listen to my favorite Hong Kong mp3s. *grin*

but no sound was coming . and songs where running but a song of 5 minutes was finishing in 5 seconds.
may be kernel 2.4.19 can help.
