Well, I suggest you to download ALSA driver and shall work for you.
But as I know you are pretty new to linux, I found a detailed instruction to install it. Don't worry, at first look complicated but is easy and simple.
Here is the detailed instruction I found on other site:



first :-

do
Code: [Select]
lspci | grep Audio
and then u get the type of your sound card
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 02)

second :-

then download the lastest alsa Driver ,asla Util and alsa Lib from www.alsa-project.org

third:-

In a shell type these commands:
Make a directory to store the alsa source code in.
These are single command per line ie. type one by one.
Code: [Select]
cd /usr/src
mkdir alsa
cd alsa
cp /downloads/alsa-* .
Now unzip and install the alsa-driver package
Code: [Select]
bunzip2 alsa-driver-xxx
tar -xf alsa-driver-xxx
cd alsa-driver-xxx
./configure --with-cards=hda-intel --with-sequencer=yes;make;make install

In a shell type these commands:
Make a directory to store the alsa source code in.
Code: [Select]
cd /usr/src
mkdir alsa
cd alsa
cp /downloads/alsa-* .
Now unzip and install the alsa-driver package
Code: [Select]
bunzip2 alsa-driver-xxx
tar -xf alsa-driver-xxx
cd alsa-driver-xxx
./configure --with-cards=hda-intel --with-sequencer=yes;make;make install
In a shell type these commands:
Make a directory to store the alsa source code in.
Code: [Select]
cd /usr/src
mkdir alsa
cd alsa
cp /downloads/alsa-* .
Now unzip and install the alsa-driver package
Code: [Select]
bunzip2 alsa-driver-xxx
tar -xf alsa-driver-xxx
cd alsa-driver-xxx
./configure --with-cards=hda-intel --with-sequencer=yes;make;make install
Now unzip and install the alsa-lib package
Code: [Select]
cd ..
bunzip2 alsa-lib-xxx
tar -xf alsa-lib-xxx
cd alsa-lib-xxx
./configure;make;make install
Now unzip and install the alsa-utils package
Code: [Select]
cd ..
bunzip2 alsa-utils-xxx
tar -xf alsa-utils-xxx
cd alsa-utils-xxx
./configure;make;make install
after that add this to shell
Code: [Select]
#modprobe snd-hda-intel;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss
then type
Code: [Select]
#alsaconf and it will work automatically then type
Code: [Select]
#alsamixer to check than every thing is unmutted then every thing is ready to work just play your favorite track and just smile.
Thank you! to ADAM who compiled these instructions.

This might look hard but actually its repeated steps.

As asked in other thread about same question :
Quote
ricky by your method my sound card  :(couldn't be detected
i think kernel recompilation method can be best, as i knew from alsa site and i don't know how, Huh

Well, we are actually compiling all the stuff, may be you missed something, .. ./configure, make , make install..
all these are for compiling.

I suggest you to do all with peace and fresh mind while understanding the stuff which you do not get  at first!
