Question :

How  to  install AC’97 Audio Controller   driver  in my  Linux ?

Answer:

With    Gnome2.28 i  got  really  issue to  make it  working . the  alsa  drivers  and  the  mixers dont  help . finaly  decided  to  search from google and  to  check  experience of  people with this  driver  issue .

This  is  the  output  of  my  lspci:

00:1e.2 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 03)

the  only working   methode  is  to  install  driver   from  the OSS  (opensound  system)

Go  to  http://www.4front-tech.com/download.cgi

download  the package  for  your  Linux  or  Unix  version

reboot  the  machine .

test  the  sound  with  :

[pirat9@Unixmen-Host99 ~]$ osstest 
Sound subsystem and version: OSS 4.2 (b 2001/200910230524) (0x00040100)
