Really want to use arch on 8 donated gateway e-3200 pc's, to set up an internet cafe for senior citizens.
They're pII 300 - 450 deschutes, with 128 mb of memory.
Installation went smoothly, everything works -running kde 3.2.2- except for sound.
Soundcard is cs4236, modprobe returns module not found. There is a snd-cs4236.ko in modules directory.
Tried all different alsa configuration, no luck.
Ran a knoppix 3.3 disk, and it configured sound with ad1848 module and it works.
But there is no configuration information in modules.conf.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
what kernel are you using....?
if 2.4 then check if soundcore is loaded
2.6 well follow Wiki guide...
I'm using 2.6.
Where can i find the Wiki guide.
Top of this page on right there is a button marked php wiki
Found it and will read through it. Didn't know it was a help system.
Followed Instructions, but i'm getting this error
"modprobe: FATAL: Error inserting snd_cs4236 (/lib/modules/2.6.6/kernel/sound/isa/cs423x/snd-cs4236.ko) : No such device"
Does this mean i have to recompile the kernel.
I alsao tried "alsaconf", it returns "no legacy cards found".
I tried another set of instructions that placed "snd-mixer-oss snd-seq-oss snd-pcm-oss" in the modules array in /etc/rc.conf. Now when i "lsmod" or "cat /proc/modules" i can see the soundcards modules, but there seems to be no mixer to set any volume.
"/dev/snd" has "controlC0 and timer"
"/dev/sound" is empty
"alsamixer" returns "snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device"
"amixer set MASTER 100 unmute" returns "No such device"
"amixer set PCM 100 unmute" returns "No such device"
Going to try all those options to be placed in "/etc/devfsd.conf"
