    linux sound on built in nVidia


    I am trying to get the sound running on my Emachine T3092 tower .
    this is "lspci"'s description of the chipset

    Code:
    00:05.0 Multimedia audio controller: nVidia Corporation nForce MultiMedia audio [Via VT82    686B] (rev a2)
    00:06.0 Multimedia audio controller: nVidia Corporation nForce2 AC97 Audio Controler (MCP     (rev a1)
    Alsa detects the chpset and says to use the Intel8x0 driver.
    However, whenever I boot Linux, under the sound startup it gives the following error

    Code:
     (where the driver is) Init_module: No such device
    Then it says

    Code:
     Hint: Insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
    thanks for any help

    Hey -- Did you ever get your sound problem figured out? I'm experiencing the exact same thing with an eMachine T3096 but I'm using PCLinuxOS. I've installed the nVidia drivers which doesn't seem to help either. I've found that the sound works perfectly when booting this machine off a Knoppix livecd ... What gives???

    If you've got it working, please tell me how!!!

    Thanks.

    I give up!

    OK. I tried the procedure at the ALSA Matrix site and either I have no idea what I'm doing or the instructions aren't very clear ... And here I thought I wasn't such a Linux newb! Even though I've been using Linux for 4-5 years now, I guess there's still much to learn ...

    I'm going to try Ubuntu on this machine or maybe go with Knoppix since I know the sound works. Also, I should mention that I've had Fedora Core 2 on this machine and no problems with sound there either. Maybe it's just PCLinuxOS ... ?

    Thanks.
