Hi,
I am a newbie and I recently installed Linux Redhat v9 on my Acer Travelmate 520iT Laptop. The Kernel version is 2.4.20-8. Using the Soundcard detection setting, I get: 'The following Audio device was detected
Vendor: Ali Corporation
Model: M5451 PCi AC-Link Controller Audio Device
Module: Trident

When I select the 'play test sound' button i get the error msg: 'The trident driver could not be loaded. This soundcard may not be compatible with redhat linux'.
Also: 'Automatic detection of the soundcard did not work'

How can I resolve this problem?

I thank you in advance, any help would be appreciated.

I would check Redhat's Hardware Compatibility list to ensure that your sound card is supported. It should list what module is needed as well.

Thanks very much for your reply,

In terms of Module, does that mean for example -Driver location: Red Hat Linux CD?

I checked the hardware compatibility list which reported:

//Component: Controller Card
//Status: Compatible
//Comments: This includes most of the IDE controller chipsets from ALi, which are //integrated into your the south bridge chip on your motherboard. Examples include //M1641, M1631, M1561, M1541, etc.
//Driver Location: Red Hat Linux installation CD


If the M5451 chipset is included then I assume that the installation process (which was done from a Red Hat Linux installation CD) contained an error; or the driver requires some modification?

I have tried to gather some more information with regards to the nature of the problem. This is what the syslog reported:

********************************************************************************
*****************
Sep 14 13:47:35 localhost insmod: /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/sound/trident.o: init_module: No such device
Sep 14 13:47:35 localhost insmod: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters. You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
Sep 14 13:47:35 localhost insmod: /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/sound/trident.o: insmod sound-slot-0 failed

Sep 14 13:47:37 localhost kernel: PCI: Guessed IRQ 10 for device 00:06.0
Sep 14 13:47:37 localhost kernel: trident: ALi Audio Accelerator found at IO 0x9000, IRQ 10
Sep 14 13:47:37 localhost kernel: ALi 5451 did not come out of reset.
Sep 14 13:47:37 localhost kernel: trident_ac97_init: error resetting 5451.
********************************************************************************
****************

I also ran 'dmesg' in a terminal and got this:

********************************************************************************
****************
Trident 4DWave/SiS 7018/ALi 5451,Tvia CyberPro 5050 PCI Audio, version 0.14.10h, 18:00:09 Mar

PCI: Guessed IRQ 10 for device 00:06.0
trident: ALi Audio Accelerator found at IO 0x9000, IRQ 10
ALi 5451 did not come out of reset.
trident_ac97_init: error resetting 5451.
********************************************************************************
****************

From this debugger/syslog report can I determine the problem? If so how?
