Sorry, my mind was wandering a bit when I wrote my previous message :-).
As Blades have PCI buses, the device detection there uses PCI IDs, and not
information from prtconf. So, to include the support for your sound card
in discover1, you need to determine its PCI ID and the correct kernel
module. To get the ID you can use lspci, for example running lspci on my
(i386) machine displays the audio card as
0000:00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corp. 82801CA/CAM AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02)
You can then run lspci -n, the relevant output will look like that:
0000:00:1f.5 0401: 8086:2485 (rev 02)
The PCI ID for this card is then 8086:2485. The mappings between PCI IDs
and kernel module which discover1 will load to make it work are stored in
/lib/discover/pci.lst. I can check whether there is an entry for my card
there (note the removed colon in the PCI ID):
bash$ grep 80862485 /lib/discover/pci.lst
80862485 sound i810_audio 82801CA/CAM AC'97 Audio Controller
So, when discover1 finds this card, it will load i810_audio module. For
your card such a mapping is most likely absent. Once you determine the PCI
ID and the needed module, you can add a line for it to
/lib/discover/pci.lst and check whether it works. If everything works out,
submit a wishlist bug against discover1-data with this information.
