    Have intel onboard sound, so how do I install Drivers?


    My onboard sound is an intel 865GBF, and I wanna know how do I install the drivers without having to recompile the kernel. Reason being I wanna have some sound for a variety of reasons, obviously number one is gaming. So I heard you can make it as a MODULE. How do I go on about doing this? Thanx in advance!

    go into your kernel-dir (e.g. /usr/src/linux-kernelversion) and type

    Code:
    make menuconfig
    than search for you soundchip and set this option to M (for module)
    read the help for your module cuz there stands which name the module has!

    after that save your config and back in konsole:

    Code:
    make modules modules_install
    so your module is compiled. now just load it into your running kernel

    Code:
    modprobe  <modulename>
    thats it. i hope i could help U and that it worx *g
    make install not love
