I have no sound with my SiS AC97 :(
Hi everybody, greetings from Guatemala, I have installed Gentoo 2008.0 with de "module selection method" and I have NO sound in my laptop.
My laptop is an Acer TravelMate 2430, this is the info about my soundcard: (gived by lspci):
00:02.7 Multimedia audio controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] AC'97 Sound Controller (rev a0)
And that's it...then in the Kernel Configuration (Device Drivers->Sound->Pci) I have selected the following driver:
Intel/SiS/Nvidia/AMD/Ali AC97 Controller as a Module
The name of the module is SND_AC97_CODEC.
but when I try to load it with de "modprobe" says that is no driver...mmm...anyway...I read all the doc about ALSA in Gentoo official site and when I run #alsaconfig my cards is there and ALSA configures it (obviously this is not happening) because when I run the "alsamixer" it shows a "dummy" name in the Cards name field...
The only that loads in the begginig is the intel-snd-1X0 or something like that, but There is NO sound instead...:(
I have already add the user to the audio group too, everything was compiled with ALSA support too...
It's really frustrating really, because everythings looks normal but there is no sound,
I hope you can help me...
Thanks guys, see ya later :)
