Description of problem:
Hi, whenever I open /dev/mixer, I get this error that the file isn't there 
and/or sound support is not in the kernel. It seems that there is a problem 
with the trident driver. I went to www.ali.com.tw and got an updated driver, 
but it doesn't seem to work. I still get problems doing make modules. Is there 
any fix for this? I'm using kernel 2.4.20-8, on Red Hat Linux 9. Sound works 
fine before, on Mandrake Linux 9. My greatest wish is to get sound working on 
RH9. Does anyone know where to get a working driver/patch and instructions?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just open Volume Control, or anything that has to do with sounds. It hangs 
and after a while, gives you an error

Actual Results:  error

Expected Results:  sound should work

Additional info:

I am using integrated sound

How about the latest update kernel ?

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
