Running 4.2.1 on an old IBM thinkpad A30 with a AC97 sound chip with no audio. When I run alsa setup and choose ESS 18xx I get an encouraging woof woof but nevertheless no sound when playing files on Gxine. Sound worked fine with when copied cd to ram but once fully installed into main HDD sound went away. Any ideas? I really wanna keep this awesome OS but i need my audio for skype etc

Like most AC97-based audio chipsets, your CS4299 audio device is supported by the snd-intel8x0 ALSA driver.

That's wrong. The ESS 18xx is an ISA-based audio chipset.

That's also wrong, for the same reason.
You should not be choosing the "legacy" section in the Alsa Wizard. This applies only to ISA audio devices.
Your audio device is on the PCI bus, and should be automatically detected.

Thanks tempestuous ! That got my sound going, pardon my noobness but it seems it was a gxine problem all along because Pmusic works fine but gxine still doesnt want to cooperate sometimes just video with no audio and sometimes just flat out crashes, using xvesa since xorg showed blue screen. Guess ill try Mplayer and see if that works

Gxine plays video only(on some some avi's only, some just crash), no audio and Mplayer just crashes and freezes the entire system. All running under Xvesa, I'll make abrand new post since the original problem is solved
