    No sound > Man9.2 > crystal chipset


    After several attempts, I have Mandrake 9.2 working on my laptop. However, while everything appears ok, I have no sound...

    Spec:
    Time Traveler AMD 1400
    Twister Crystal Sound chipset
    S3 Savage graphics (ok)
    40Gb HDD
    312Mb Memory (32Mb shared graphics)

    I've tried going through the hardware set-up wizard but it doesn't find any sound chipsets. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

    jsut to be sure, run lspci and check it says via-8233 or via82c686 or somethign similar for your sound card.

    myself and several other people on here have essentially the same card working so there is hope.

    can you post your /etc/modules.conf file here

    But first, check all the volumes are turned up (aumix, or kmix) and then that you are usign the correct output plugin for whatever you are tryign to use. - ALSA is usually a good bet.
