Mainboard: nVidia nForce2, soundcard AC-97 onboard.
Software: UBUNTU 7.10, moving as soon as I can to 8.04
Problem: no sound at all, no matter what options I select from the
Back in the day, I downloaded drivers from nVidia's site. Now, their
site says I should use 'intel8x0.c'. The closest thing I can find with
modprobe -l is 'snd-intel8x0'. Siumply inserting that doesn1t seem to help.
When the driver came from nVidia, there was a release-notes with it that
gave instructions for entries in modprobe.d. Now I don't have that.
Please advise how I can get this darned thing singing. Sad to say,
throwing it through tthe window isn't an option.
