    Need Help


    Hi,
    I am using the RedHat 8 (Kernal V.2.4) in the following platform..

    Motherboard : Intel 845GVSR
    Audio : On Board (AC'97)
    RAM : 128MB

    I am having the linux as dual boot with Win98. In win98 I am getting the audio... but in Linux is not !..

    Here giving my observation and error messages what I am getting.....

    #1) while giving the command lspci it showing the following output

    [b]00:1P.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corp. 82801DB AC'97 Audio (rev 01)


    #2) While loging into the GUI Mode the following error is poping
    Unable to open /dev/dsp file

    #3) While opening the Volume controller......
    I was not able to Open your audio device. Please check that you have permission to Open /dev/mixer and make sure you have sound support compiled into your kernal.

    #4) cat mixer
    [b] PCI: Setting latency timer of device 00:1f.5 to 64
    i810_audio: Primary codec not ready
    cat:mixer: No such device

    Is the intel 845GVSR motherboard is supportable to Redhat 8? If so, Please some let me know the solution to fix the same....

    Thanks

    Have you run "alsamixer"?This configures you sound devices. Unless you run this basically every distro will put this out. BTW, You must be root to run this program. Hope this helps. :P

    You might want to upgrade to Fedora Core 4. RH8 is really old.

    I am running FC4 and I still don't get sound, never got it on FC3 either. SuSE 9.2 automatically detected it and installed whatever it needed to.

    What is alsamixer and what should I do with alsamixer to make the sound work?

    Thanks.

    To run alsamixer, just type into a terminal

    su >root password
    alsamixer

    Then adjust all volumes

    I've adjusted all volumes but for some reason there is still no sound.
