I tried using alsa 0.5.9d, oss, and some other methods I've found on here but always get errors. I know I enabled sound support when I compiled the new kernel, but shouldn't it show up on lsmod? Do I need to do anything to enable it or did I just do something wrong(this is my 2nd day using linux). I've gotten my video card to work and successfully compiled a new kernel so I really want to get my sound working. Any ideas on what I can do to get this to work or should I just drop the cash and get a new card?

Nevermind I got it working using alsa 0.9.4 from along with the lib and utils. If anyone else is have the same problems use Linux Online's ALSA HOWTO. When you get to the modprobe part...use /sbin/modprobe au8830. If you have the problem that says gcc version 2 was used for the driver and kernel was gcc version 3(or something like that) use a hex editor and change the gcc version from 2 to 3 in au8830.o. If you have any questions I'll try to help. I'm still new at this too....forgot -also had to modprobe soundcore since I had sound support as a module when I compiled the kernel.

Looks like you have RH9.0 workin with an AU8830 (turtle beach montego II). I have the same but not working at all. I think I need first to install the divers before using ALSA. Where do I get the "rpms" for it? Thing is when I do "modprobe au8830" I get back "Can't locate module au8830". I know for sure I have an 8830 because I had it woking with RH7.2 before.
