A challenge to all those who call them linux geeks !!!!
Solve my CM 8738 audio problem with PCQ Linux 2004 (Based on Fedora Core 1 )
Onboard sound on Intel 810 mobo. I recently upgraded to 2.6.2 kernel but no sound !!! I m completely frustrated but i will not leave linux

(just have been trying linux from long long time but no sound boohoooooo..........(weeping....)

See what commands say ----->

NOW WHAT TO DO ????????????????????????????????????????????????

Thank you!

I think you can put the I810 sound driver in the kernel.  I say that because that is what I use for my nforce audio.  The kernel config screen should look like this:

--- Code: ---<*> Intel i8x0/MX440, SiS 7012; Ali 5455; NForce Audio; AMD768/8111
--- End code ---

Does that help?

 :D  :D  :D

i cant understand how to put I810 sound driver in the kernel?????

what is ur yahoo id so that i can chat with u

You go to a terminal or console and as root type this:

--- Code: ---cd /usr/src/linux

make menuconfig

--- End code ---

That is where you configure the kernel.  You need to go through each screen to put in what you need, including the driver for sound.  When you get done, copy the kernel over to /boot and then boot it.

That configure is not a gui  with mouse controls.  You have to use the arrow keys and such.

If you have never done this before, I suggest you look for a how to.  It is right and it works or it is not and it don't or is unstable.  Since you posted so much info, I thought you were a guru.  :D


:D :D :D :D

I dont remember clearly but for that I think there is Linux driver avaialble also.. I had seen that in one PCQ mag CD. .. will look for u. and will tell or will mail u .. but that is when if I found it.
