Installing new sound driver
Caldera Openlinux eDesktop 2.4 detected my soundcard during installation, but I get no sound. My mainboard installation cd has Linux sound drivers. How can I install them to my system?

What soundcard do you have?

Really, we need to know what chipset. The drivers will most likely be on your harddrive in /lib/modules/2.2.x/kernel/sound or something like that. From the output of 'lspci' and 'cat /proc/pci' we can figure out what module you need to be using. However, is this an old ISA sound card?

Funny, there's another thread I'm on with another guy dealing with the Intel 810 mobo built in sound and Debian, but right around the same kernel version, which is all that matters. "uname -i" would tell you the running kernel version. There are 3 modules for the i810 sound somewhere in /lib/modules/2.2.x/misc which pertain to the board. I think you'll need to try:

modprobe i810_audio

I'm pretty certain that's the right module for the job, also, you might need to 'modprobe soundcore' as I don't remember if Caldera made that part of the kernel or not. If it errors, could you post the output?

sound problems
Thanks guys my sound problems are fixed. I'm not sure what I did to fix the problem but going into the files you suggested did something & now I have sound.
