FC3 sound problem on IBM ThinkPad 600

I am a newbie to Linux. I have Fedora Core 3 installed on a ThinkPad 600. Everything but sound is working. The laptop uses a Crystal 42xx chip that was not detected at install. If you can help, please be specific with instructions (newbie, remember). By-the-way, the laptop has a 20G hard drive and maximum memory (392meg or so).

PS: This is a sweet little lightweight machine that I plan on using until it is so out of date that I can't stand it.

I had a similar problem on my thinkpad. I use Mandrake, but it should be similar with FC3.

yum is the package management tool. So do a "yum alsa-utils". I then did a "alsaconf". From there I let the software detect the card. It works really well now.

Hope this helps.

I have a thinkpad 770x it am pretty sure the 600 uses the same sound card. I used the oss drive to get mine working

1)edit /etc/modutils/sound, add the following lines:

alias char-major-14 cs4232
options cs4232 io=0x530 irq=5 dma=1 dma2=0

2) run: update-modules

3) edit /etc/modules, add the following line


4) run: modprobe cs4232

note: this was one debian so it may be different.
