Sound Drivers = (done)

We know this needs fixing or cleaning up.
Can you stick your hand up and take charge of it?

Sound Drivers = (done)

It would be nice if we could have the Realtek Audio drivers in the main package.
Currently when the Realtek drivers are installed, they nuke the default drivers, which is why they are supplied as a patch.
I don't know how to change this or even if it can be changed. Some help here would be nice.

I think I may have a resolution for this one.
A lot was learned while making the NVIDIA drivers.

I should be able to test this one out with Saintless over the next few weeks.
If all goes well, we will have a proper fix for DevRel_03 and will not require the 011-xxx files

I need some Guinea Pigs ....

Is there anyone who has more than one machine with different sound cards?

I am specifically looking for someone who has at least one machine that requires 011-Realtek_IntelHDA to be loaded for the sound to work, yet they also have another machine where sound does NOT work when 011-Realtek_IntelHDA is loaded.

Bonus points if you have an NVIDIA card in one or both of them.

If so, could you please let me know either here, or by PM.

Cheers

Working sound with 486 kernel and the newer ALSA version on these:


1. AMD Sempron, 1500 MHz (9 x 167) 2200+, 512 Mb SDRAM, Motherboard: Asus A7V880, Video: NVIDIA GeForce 6200 (128 MB), Audio: VIA AC'97 Enhanced Audio Controller VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controller (rev 60)

2. IBM Netvista, PIII 600 Mhz, 128Mb SDRAM, integrated audio - Intel Corporation 8281BA/BAM 'AC/97 audio controller (rev 02).

3. Dell OptiPlex GXa - Intel Pentium 233 MHz, 92 Mb SDRAM, integrated audio - CS4236B.


4. Intel Pentium II 350 MHz, 128 Mb SDRAM, Video ATI #D Rage Pro 16 Mb, Audio Creative ViBRA16C PNP (Sound Blaster 16)

5. Pentium - MMX - 166 MHz, 48 Mb SDRAM, ES1869 - ESS Audio Drive ES1869 (FoxyRoxy start X on this one but works very slow)

6. Pentium - MMX - 400 MHz, 128 Mb SDRAM, ES Technology ES1969 Solo-1 Audio Drive

This is from me for the moment. Have a few more old computers but they need some repairing before get them to work for testing.

Hi folks.

Thanks for the testing. You can continue with other machines if they are easy enough to get and boot. If they are not, then don't bother. We've already done more testing than most distros, so I think this one is nailed.

I'm locking it down and going for gold.

Cheers, Brenton
