    Intel sound driver needed


    Hey guys,
    I'm using intel desktop board D865GLC motherboard, it has an integraded sound card, my Linux kernel 2.4 doesn't have a driver for it, nor do the retailers, they all have drivers for Red Hat. Does anyone know where to get one?
    Thanks.

    I have an Intel D865 PERL Motherboard so I'm going to venture a guess, that it has the same onboard sound as your system. <Intel ICH5 (82801EB)>

    I recently re-installed my system using Debian unstable and the 2.6.12 kernel. the onboard sound works great now (it didn't work when I was running Debian unstable with the 2.4 kernel), Also make sure you have the latest version of ALSA installed.

    If you do a lspci at the shell do you see a multimedia audio controller AC97 listed ?

    if you do a lsmod do you see the following items listed ?

    i810_audio
    soundcore
    AC97_codec
    snd_intel8x0


    somewher eto start at least..

    Btw, what distro are you running ?


    I was actually without souind for a couple days because I have a sound blaster card plugged into the system since the onboard audio wouoldn't work before.. took me 2 days to figure out I needed to move the speaker plug to the onboard audio jack now I just have to remember to pull the sound blaster card next time I shut down trhe system.

    When i run the command
    "soundcardconfig"
    it says a PCI sound card was found in your system. Details:
    Model: Intel corp. | 82801EB AC'97 audio controller.

    Dude, I don't have a PCI sound card, my sound card is integrated into the motherboard, but I believe it is the model.
    when I run lsmod it lists:
    i830
    soundcore

    those are the only two related to sound I guess. Others that you mentioned are not ont he list.
    Can you gimme more telail on that?
    Thank you much.

    Code:

    Kernel 2.4 ?
    Then you will need to install the "alsa-modules" for it.

    For example, if you have the default 2.4 (which is 2.4.27.2) kernel, it will be:
    Code:
    apt-get install alsa-modules-2.4.27-2-386
    This is only a example. just do:
    Code:
    cat /proc/version
    to know which kernel you have, and then install the proper alsa-modules for it.

    Alsa is not part of the 2.4 kernel (contrary to kernel 2.6).

    Unless you have a very low-end machine, you should go for a 2.6 kernel (then you won't need "alsa-modules").
