Fedora Core 5 is not properly configuring my soundcard. I have a new HP Small
Form Factor Desktop (dc7600) which uses the Intel 945G motherboard with
integrated Realtek ALC260 sound chip.

Devices screen. This shows:
Vendor: Intel
Model: Corporation 82801G (IHC7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller
Module: snd-hda-intel
Default PCM device: ALC260 Analog

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. system-config-soundcard (or using grapgical menus as above)
Actual results:
no sound heard

Expected results:
able to hear sample sound

Could you please check this how-to?
Comment 3 paulp 2006-07-05 17:08:40 EDT
Sorry for the delay in following this up.
I have run through your alsa how-to page and was unsuccessful.
I have attached an output file which indicates some problem encountered during
the 'make' command.
When I now run system-config-soundcard the details show the same vendor, model
and driver but there is no Default PCM Device....

I have since updated my kernel to 2.6.17-1.2145_FC5-i686 and updated all the
alsa packages to the latest stable versions found by yum (1.0.11rc4) and now get
the following error in make...

/data/downloads/soundcard_driver/alsa-driver-1.0.11rc4/drivers/serialmidi.c: In
function ‘tx_loop’:
error: ‘struct tty_struct’ has no member named ‘atomic_write’
error: ‘struct tty_struct’ has no member named ‘atomic_write’

make[1]: *** [modules] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.17-1.2145_FC5-i686'
make: *** [compile] Error 2

I am not sure what else to do - are there missing libraries/packages needed for
configure/make to compile a module for this kernel?
Comment 6 Martin Stransky 2006-08-04 16:15:19 EDT
okay, I updated my ALSA page so could you please check the latest ALSA driver
package from my site? (http://people.redhat.com/stransky/alsa/, package

Thanks Martin! That new alsa tar ball compiled a treat and worked first time!
