Full Version: Red Hat 9.0 - Asus A7v8x-x Sound Problem
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
Hello, i have a problem with my sound card.
i have an ASUS A7V8X-X series mainboard with an integrated sound card, the redhat detects my sound card but when i try to play something there is no sound. When i run the autodetect program for snd cards and try to play the test sound i hear nothing again??????????????????
where could be the problem?
Can you try playing something as root and see if it works. What are you using to play sounds? xmms?
i have tried playing sounds as root too but no result mad.gif
i use the mediaplayer, tried also the cd player and a 1 or 2 more players still no result mad.gif

I was told that i need alsa drivers package, but i cant find a kernel package and drivers for red hat 9.0
When in X-Windows, load the Mixer and make sure you have the volume up ... start out with everything in the middle....are you using KDE or Gnome desktop?
i am with gnome, everything is at MAX and still nothing sad.gif
I take it you are using Red Hat 9 from your posts. I also had this problem but it was fixed when I updated the Kernel. I tried everything to get sound to work and in the end it magically started working with a newer kernel. Have you tried this yet?
Here is a post that details some information:

So, what is in your /etc/modules.conf that is related to sound ... and what does the Soundcard Detection utility say you have as a soundcard?

Looking at the Manual for your card it says you have an ADI 1980 card.

Here is some more info:

Linux Compatibility Testing Results says it is not yet supported.

This one says he gets sound when plugged into the mic port!!!
