    Intel Corp. 82801EB AC'97 Audio


    Hello all, I was searching google for drivers for linux or at least how to get it to work, or SOMEWHERE to get started. I'm still new to linux, if it weren't for the games I sometimes play, I would be all linux, but I'm not, but getting there.

    I'm having trouble getting sound working on my system, I know very few commands for bash so any help is appreciated. First off, I've read up that a lot of trouble have trouble getting sound to work with this Card, (build into mobo).

    Any help?

    i don't know anything about Red Hat 9 except that it's old. I'd personally try somethign newer. ALSA is probably what you're looking for though. there are many sites that will tell you how to install and configure it. i don't know how in Red Hat.

    What would you recommend I use instead of Linux?
    Something easy to learn, but also good for learning coding and other stuff later.

    Linux is just the Kernel that many operating systems are built on. for starting out i'd use something current (assuming your hardware will support it) and mainstream. my recommendations for free software would be:

    For a Pentium 4 or higher

    Suse 9.3 or higher
    Fedora Core 4 or higher
    CentOS 4.2 or higher

    for a Pentium 3 or Higher

    Ubuntu (they'll even mail you free cd's)
    SimplyMEPIS (great because it's a live cd you install from)

    Pentium 2 or Lower

    DamnSmallLinux
    VectorLinux


    Ubuntu is the one i liked the best and had most success with, but it works best with an internet connection to get necessarly packages.
    Suse and Fedora come with more out of the box, but i found them a little clumsy on my system. But like anyone would tell you try a few and stick with the one you like best. Distrowatch is a good place to start.
