Hi Everybody,

Just installed Puppy and the first time I've played with Linux.

I've tried using the help files to get my sound going but with no luck. I was hoping that someone could help.

When I do a Query-PCI hardware probe the sound comes back as a:

8086:24d5 (4,1) 11 [ Intel - Analog Devies SoundMax ] AUDIO i810_audio

and if I look under the Modules section of hardware probe to comes back with:

AUDIO i810_audio: Intel Analog Devices SoundMax (8086:24d5) detected

when I try to load the i810_audio driver it returns:

# modprobe i810_audio
Note: /etc/modules.conf is more recent than /lib/modules/2.4.29/modules.dep
/lib/modules/2.4.29/sound/oss/i810_audio.o.gz: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.29/sound/oss/i810_audio.o.gz: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.29/sound/oss/i810_audio.o.gz failed
/lib/modules/2.4.29/sound/oss/i810_audio.o.gz: insmod i810_audio failed


Could anyone explain how to get the audio working??

Many thanks

If you type:

# lsmod

you will be able to see if i810_audio is loaded, which is what is supposed to have happened at bootup.
If it isn't loaded, then... I dunno. That's supposed to be the right module.

There is no mention of anything to so with sound that I can see.

Could anybody give me any further pointers??

Many thanks

If sound is important then . . .

ALSA (a better sound support is on its way . . .)

Did Puppy 1.0.2 which uses a different kernel (2.6) have better sound support? Might that be a temp solution?

The i810_audio works fine on my nForce board. If I remember correctly, the SoundMax is not i810_audio, but AD1980, which is not in Puppy. There was a thread in the other forum I frequent on this.

Alsa supports it with a fix, but this audio is new and the last that I looked, the drivers were still being worked on for alsa support.
