Description of problem:
I have a Dell Dimension 8300 with Intel 875P chipset motherboard. The
onboard sound chipset is ADI 1985. The soundcard gets detected as
Intel 82801EB incorrectly and the play sound doesnt work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Load up Fedora
2.Go to System Settings, soundcard detection
Correction: onboard sound chipset is ADI 1980 not ADI 1985 as I
previously thought. Also I spoke with someone who said that i810 is
actually for the bus and not the card itself so thats why its
detecting it as i810. However sound still doesnt work.
This is what I did to get sound working on redhat 9 at least:
tar xjf alsa-driver-0.9.5.tar.bz2
rpm -ivh alsa-lib-0.9.5-fr1.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh gnome-alsamixer-0.9.3-fr1.i386.rpm
echo "Now run gnome-alsamixer, and unmute the \"surround\" channel"
echo "Note you should probably max the surround level, and"
echo "use the PCM level as the main volume."
