    ALSA + Intel 810 soundcard troubles


    Hey folks,
    I have been having a hard time getting my onboard sound card to work. I have an Intel MOBO with built-in sound.

    Code:
    lspci -v | grep audio
    00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801AA AC'97 Audio (rev 02)
    I have compiled the kernel to include the modules and they are loaded

    Code:
    lsmod
    Module                  Size  Used by
    snd_intel8x0           26012  0
    snd_ac97_codec         84000  1 snd_intel8x0
    ac97_bus                2048  1 snd_ac97_codec
    snd_pcm                57864  2 snd_intel8x0,snd_ac97_codec
    snd_timer              15492  1 snd_pcm
    snd                    37732  4 snd_intel8x0,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm,snd_timer
    snd_page_alloc          7176  2 snd_intel8x0,snd_pcm
    When I run dmesg I get this, which I am not sure is my problem or not.

    Code:
    dmesg | grep 810
    agpgart: Detected an Intel i810 E Chipset.
    Intel 810 + AC97 Audio, version 1.01, 10:55:15 May 12 2007
    i810: Intel ICH 82801AA found at IO 0x1300 and 0x1200, MEM 0x0000 and 0x0000, IRQ 17
    i810_audio: Audio Controller supports 2 channels.
    i810_audio: Defaulting to base 2 channel mode.
    i810_audio: Resetting connection 0
    i810_audio: AC'97 codec 0 Unable to map surround DAC's (or DAC's not present), total channels = 2
    I read somewhere that soundcore module is needed but that doesn't exist
    Code:
    modinfo soundcore
    modinfo: could not find module soundcore
    I am part of the audio group, so I don't think this is the problem.......Any other ideas?

    Solved

    I needed to recompile the kernel with a few modules listed under ALSA driver.
    Got it working though.
