Sound on Thinkpad 770E
Hello. :) I've installed Debian (Woody) on a used Thinkpad 770E I just
bought. Everything works beautifully; X+KDE is running surprisingly
quickly at 1024x768. :) The only thing I can't figure out is the
sound. I've read that the 770 (no E) uses the cs4232 module, and that
the 770E needs Alsa's cs4236 -- Can anyone confirm this?
For some reason, the soundcard isn't showing any info in `lspci`, and
nothing comes up in pnpdump. The two drivers I know that might work
(cs4232 and Alsa cs4236) require IRQ/IOport info, and I don't have it.
:( The BIOS doesn't seem to contain this information.
The guy I bought the laptop off of thinks he remembers that sound worked
in Slackware, but, in my haste to get Debian installed, I didn't check
the details before I reformatted. I've got everything except the sound
working perfectly, and don't particularly want to install another OS to
get this information. If anyone has some hints or tips, I'd be much
appreciative. :) Thanks!
