Re: help setting up sound

I'm having trouble figuring out how to configure my
sound card (I'm running Sarge), due to the fact that I
can't quite understand the specs of my motherboard.
My computer's specs seem to indicate a sound module
• VIA KT600 + VT8237 Chipset
• Integrated C-Media CMI9739A 6-channel audio CODEC
In any case, the machine doesn't seem to know even
what sound card I have. KMix says "Unknown" when I
open it. I installed the alsa packages, and I made
sure in the aumixrc file, the volumes weren't muted.
Still, no sound.
I'd run "lspci" to see what the chipset is. If it says "unknown" I'd
upgrade my kernel and/or pciutils and/or my entire system to sid, and
try again. Once the system reports what type it is, you should be able
to use modconf to add the appropriate driver (or use discover).
