Mandrake 9.2 and C-Media 8738


Ok, I recently installed MDK 9.2 over 9.1. From 8.2 to 9.1 sound has worked beautifully with no configurations necessary on my part. Now, with a recent install of 9.2, I have no sound.

I'm a newbie, so I'm not quite sure what to do. harddrake appears to have correctly identified and installed the sound card (using snd-cmipci as recommended on ALSA website). I've also checked aumix to make sure that nothing is muted and it isn't. I raised the sound levels to 100 and still i get no sound.

I have nothing plugged in that would interfere with the sound (ex mic, camera etc...). However, if I do plug the mic in that is attached to my monitor, I get a loud, flat, tone.

I do have a winmodem (occassionally used in windows) that has onboard sound (riptide audio) that is detected by mandrake but has no drivers installed for it.

Let me know if I need to post info from a file. Any help would be appreciated.

Unhappy

Using harddrake I changed the it from snd-cmipci to cmipci but the sound still does not work. The module still lists snd-cmipci, ever after a reboot, in the information window. However when I click on the "run configuration tool" it says cmipci.

Here are the contents of the module.conf file.

alias eth0 8139too
alias sound-slot-0 cmpci
probeall scsi_hostadapter ide-scsi
above snd-cmipci snd-pcm-oss
probeall usb-interface usb-uhci

Should I change the "above snd-cmipci snd-pcm-oss" to "above cmipci snd-pcm-oss" Last time i edited the file I made a big mess.

I seem to have similar modules.conf what comes to sound and it works great. Can't really say what is wrong with yours.
