Setup sound card under Mandrake Linux 9
Posted on 2003-03-30
Hi, I'm trying to get my sound card setup under mnadrake 9. I have a KT3 Ultra2-R motherboard with onboard sound. I want to get the onboard sound working. The on board soundcard is a VT8233 AC97. I tried getting drivers from VIA's web site but they only support Mandrake 8.2 and when I try to install the driver sfrom their site I get a message saying Wrong Kernel Version. When I just try to play a mp3 file in XMMS I get a message saying the sound device is busy. When I try to configue the sound server I get a message saying again that the sound device is busy. On VIA's web site they said to make the following changes to /etc/modules.conf...
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-via8233
post-install snd-slot-0 snd-pcm-oss
I made the changes but still no luck. I have the speakers plugged in right and I hear a continious clicking. When I try to configure the sound server the clicking stops for a second but other than that I can't get it to do anything. I tried the sndconfig program but it says my sound card is not supported. Mandrakes web site says it is...
Can anyonme help?
Thank you in advance.
