Does this help?

RHEL5 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux)

Download the driver of sound (alsa-driver-1.0.17.tar.bz2)

tar jxvf alsa-driver-1.0.17.tar.bz2
cd alsa-driver-1.0.17
./configure --with-isapnp=no --with-cards=hda-intel
make
make install-modules

I don't know

I looked around on the net for that laptop and your distribution and found the procedure that I posted, but I don't have the experience to do much more.

The output of the command process seems to say that it is as fbianconi indicates, that you need to try to install the kernel source.

I would read the link he included and try, and when I hit a problem, try to open a new thread explaining how far I had come, and what happened.

Sorry I can't say more.
