Need Help, Compaq presario sound card (ALI 5451) Mandrake 10.0
Need help getting sound from compaq presatio 2100 series laptop. I am running Mandrake 10.0 kernel 2.4.21-0.30
The sound card is a ALI 5451 (10b9:5451)
good old sndconfig has been tried, identifies 10b9:5451 but says unknown vendor etc and exits.
lsmod does show snd-ali5451 as being loaded which should make it work, but no luck when i play any sound files etc. I know the thing (speakers etc) work.
The thing is obviously as the module is loaded etc, i don't (i think) have any error messages to submit.
I am sure more information is required abt this but can someone please tell and I will post.
