I confess to utter, total, blithering ignorance of audio setup (under Linux or anywhere else), so please bear with me here...
System: Compaq Presario 5423US, P4/1.6 GHz, 512 mb
OS: Redhat 7.2, kernel 2.4.7-10, unmodified from distro
GUI/environment: Ximian Gnome, up to the minute on all revs.
Problem: system seems to identify sound hardware OK and load what seem to be the right modules, but sound doesn't work. I have a dual-boot setup with Windows 2000, and sound works fine (hell, GREAT) there, so the hardware appears to be OK.
OK, dirty details:
Intel 810 + AC97 Audio, version 0.05, 17:36:29 Sep 6 2001
PCI: Found IRQ 5 for device 00:1f.5
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 00:1f.5 to 64
i810: Intel ICH2 found at IO 0x2400 and 0x2000, IRQ 5
ac97_codec: AC97 Audio codec, id: 0x4144:0x5360 (Analog Devices AD1885)
i810_audio: setting clocking to 41231

A PCI sound card was found in your system. The details are:
Model: Intel Corporation 82801BA/BAM (ICH2)
AC'97 Audio Controller
All of this seems at least consistent. I can't find any updated drivers or whatever on the web, but it just doesn't work. Any ideas?
