How to install AC’97 Audio Controller driver in my Linux ?
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)
Platform: Linux/i686 126.96.36.199-96.fc12.i686 #1 SMP Fri Oct 23 19:53:24 EDT 2009

/dev/oss/oss_ich0/pcm0 (audio engine 0): Intel ICH6 (266E)
Note! Device is in use (by PID 0/VMIX) but will try anyway
