in your position i should try out the tar.gz rc4 file from the

I'am trying to bring my soundcard to work under sarge with the kernel
2.6.16 compiled without module support so I can't use alsa.
This is the pci output of my card:
0000:00:04.5 Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc.
VT82C686 AC97 Audio Controller (rev 20)
With make menuconfig I use to compile a PCI card under device drivers:
VIA 82C686A/B, 8233/8235 AC97 Controller
Is this the wrong driver as I can't hear sound with xmms or xine ?
install further the alsa libraries and alsa-utils as *user*, from the
same site. reboot amd it should work.
the ac97 chip/module is supported as snd-intel8xy (or somethinf like that.
good luck. can be a struggle, but it is in my opinion valuable.
