Does anyone else have a system set up using:
Slackware 7.1, Linux-2.2.16, and a mother board
with the AC_97 codec installed?
The AC_97 module can be loaded (modprobe) but
when GNOME, KDE, anything tries to use it, nothing
happens except "DSP: No Device" messages continuously
display on the screen (about once a secnd).
Yes, the audio has been configured in the kernel (had to
build because it is a SMP MB).
Yes, audio is turned on in the BIOS.
Bus 0, device 31, function 5:
Multimedia audio controller: Intel Unknown device (rev 2).
Vendor id=8086. Device id=2415.
Medium devsel. Fast back-to-back capable. IRQ 17.
Master Capable. No bursts.
I/O at 0xe800 [0xe801].
I/O at 0xef00 [0xef01].
I built a removable drive with W98 on it and booted.
It detected the AC_97 (I believe it thought it was a Crystal
audio system) and sound works fine.
Yet no audio with Linux.
Any clues (e.g. bad driver module, etc.)?
