Alsa / kernel configuration
This question COULD have gone into the kernel forum, but I decided to put it into Gentoo since my problem may be more related to Gentoo, but I'm unsure.
I'm trying to get alsa working (actually just sound in general, I don't care what supplies it.) I have not gotten alsaconfig to recognize my card. I'm using the onboard soundcard supplied with my nvidia 790i ultra board. It works fine in fedora 9, so I know it's not an issue with no Linux support. Does anyone know exactly what kernel option I need to select for this driver? I looked at the alsa matrix thing, and selected the 2 found there (i think) but it did not recognize it. anyone know? thanks.
FYI, I know a fair amount of linux, but know nothing about the sound system, so you can give me in-depth answers and not scare me away, I just dont know how sound works :(
Oh well, opportunity to learn :D
