Does any version of zenwalk support VIA soundcard???
 
Hey friends, I have VIA8233 Soundcard in my system(as shown by suse10.1). So does zenwalk provides a driver for this sound card so that i can play multimedia files. I tried 2.8 live cd but i cudnt play the songs bcoz the application call mixerconfig didnt detected any sound card at all there.

I wanted to give suggestion for the developers that the front end style for that mixerconfig isnt that innovative, so try to change it like suse or other distro has.

Thanks

from my lspci on this old laptop

00:07.5 Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C686 AC97 Audio Controller (rev 20)

using
# cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.17.11 (me@zenwalk) (gcc version 3.4.6) #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Sep 5 16:25:38 CEST 2006

so it supports this VIA sound

did you try the modprobe ? (the via-82xx especially)

if it work after (don't forget to run alsamixer and unmute ;)), you can uncomment it in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules to have it on boot

Hi

I'm running Zenwalk 3.0 and there's no problem with my VIA sound. It's on an ASUS A8V-Delux motherboard. Default install. Only tweak to the system is proprietary ati drivers.
