    When you did a search for alsa, in the software installer, did you see something about an alsa kernel or something like that? what is there left related to alsa that you haven't installed?

    And it won't configure in the Mandriva Control Center with the regular sound configurator at all? Any error messages? Also how are you testing the sound? With an mp3 file, wav?

    Is there a sound related error message when the KDE screen comes up?

    I wish I knew more about Mandriva so I could help better.

    I did, yes, and I installed it.
    I'm on Gnome at the minute, but when booting up I do get an error concerning a USB hub (/lib/tree/ isn't installed, apparently), but that's the only error I get.

    I will paste you what I see in the control center:

    nFORCE 2 Audio Codec Interface

    Identification
    Vendor: ‎nVidia Corp.

    Description: ‎nForce2 Audio Codec Interface

    Media class: ‎MULTIMEDIA_AUDIO

    Connection
    Bus: ‎PCI

    Bus PCI #: ‎0

    PCI device #: ‎6

    PCI function #: ‎0

    Vendor ID: ‎4318

    Device ID: ‎106

    Sub vendor ID: ‎4759

    Sub device ID: ‎62785

    Driver
    Module: ‎snd-intel8x0

    Alternative drivers: ‎ali5455, i810_audio, nvaudio
    nFORCE 2 APU
    Identification
    Vendor: ‎nVidia Corp.

    Description: ‎nForce2 APU

    Media class: ‎MULTIMEDIA_AUDIO

    Connection
    Bus: ‎PCI

    Bus PCI #: ‎0

    PCI device #: ‎5

    PCI function #: ‎0

    Vendor ID: ‎4318

    Device ID: ‎107

    Sub vendor ID: ‎4759

    Sub device ID: ‎62785

    Driver
    Module: ‎unknown
    -

    The nForce2 Interface allows me to select the driver and it then shows up where "Driver Module" is.
    However the APU, while allowing me to set a driver, does not save it - it still remains "unknown" whatever I do.

    I truly appreciate the help - thank you very much indeed.
