Have you tried configuring the sound with sndconfig?
        ~# sndconfig
It will take the appropriate steps to make your soundcard barf :-) (Well,
actually it's going to be Linus saying how to pronounce Linux if all is ok).

* ESS Solo1 (very cheap)
* TerraTec DMX XFire 1024 (rather expensive)

Both work.

Ensoniq PCI 128 aka Creative SB16-PCI.  Has the ES1373 chip on it, uses
the es1371 module.  Works well and is cheap, too.  Less than 30 bucks
incl. shipping.
 
 
 

1. Sound Card Help: ALSA driver, ESSOLO 1938 PCI Sound Card

I actually got pretty far into this, but can't make a peep come out of the
speakers (I just had a horrible thought - speakers are plugged in and turned
on).

Got ALSA Drivers, utilities, and library files, did standard configure, make,
make install for each.
In a console window under KDE, did the following:
1. insmod soundcore - got nothing back, so I assume that worked.
2. ran the snddevices script - it happily reported making a ton of devices.
3. Edited my etc/modules.conf to the following

alias net-pf-4 off
alias net-pf-5 off
alias char-major-116 snd
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias snd-card-0 snd-card-es1938
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0

4. ran modprobe snd-card-es1938 - got nothing back, so I assume that worked as
well.

5. I tried a couple of the tools available under the "multimedia" option of the
KDE menu - none of them can access the output dev. I tried the chmod, still no
joy. When I run /utils/alsasound start, it reports that the driver is already
running. I postulate that may be so, but would like to confirm my hypothesis by
actually hearing something from the speakers. Any help would be appreciated.
