I am using red Hat 9.0, with
sound card : VT8233AC97 Audio controller.
Driver : Via82cxxx_audio
Once in a while I made the thing to do some work,. i.e. play some sound.
It was running and I heard the guiter sound.
After that it just is not running. I tried almost all possible ways.
1. Uninstalled & reinstalled the sound driver.
2. Recompiled the alsa driver.
Nothing seems to work.
