    sound card detection


    Hi all,

    i am having problems with sound card detection on my desktop.
    on windows it runs well but on linux it cannot detect the same.
    when i run sound card detection it shows:
    vendor:Intel
    Model:Corp. 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97 Audio controller
    Module: snd-intel8x0

    how to make the sound card work. I am working on a 2.6.11-1.14_FC3 kernel.

    thanks in advance...

    As far as I know that works with the alsa driver. Run 'alsaconfig' as root, it should ask you to specify your card...set the volumes and there you go.
