In the alsa howto there is a brief description of the hardware supported by alsa

I am not a great alsa master, so I can only give you a proof of
existence. I use kernel 2.4.22 and I have have a k7s5a card. I can
choose between a module called ac97_codec and alsa (which again uses a
module called snd-ac97-codec). However I cannot load both ac97 modules
at the same time.

Here is some lsmod output with alsa

snd-dummy               3520   0 
snd-usb-audio          37792   0  (unused)
snd-intel8x0           16068   3 
snd-pcm                51012   1  [snd-dummy snd-usb-audio snd-intel8x0]
snd-timer              12196   0  [snd-pcm]
snd-ac97-codec         34360   0  [snd-intel8x0]
snd-page-alloc          5460   0  [snd-dummy snd-intel8x0 snd-pcm]
snd-mpu401-uart         2656   0  [snd-intel8x0]
snd-rawmidi            11680   0  [snd-usb-audio snd-mpu401-uart]
snd-seq-device          3616   0  [snd-rawmidi]
snd                    24996   2  [snd-dummy snd-usb-audio snd-intel8x0 snd-pcm snd-timer snd-ac97-codec snd-mpu401-uart snd-rawmidi snd-seq-device]

There is a very specific description of the k7s5a card in the k7s5a
howto, but you can probably find more general descriptions elsewhere.


PS: Is k7s5a short for kissa?
