i think that is the ident of my mobo chipset, and in this case, relevant to the "sound card", i could be wrong tho...

disturbedite, type the following in your terminal console:

cat /proc/asound/modules

The list of sound card numbers and respective modules will be printed.

Thanks. Looking at modules dependencies of my kernel version, snd_intel8x0 is a AC97 chipset, not Intel HDA:

# modprobe --show-depends snd_intel8x0
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/sound/core/snd-page-alloc.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/sound/soundcore.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/sound/core/snd.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/sound/core/snd-timer.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/sound/core/snd-pcm.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/sound/pci/ac97/snd-ac97-bus.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/sound/pci/ac97/snd-ac97-codec.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/sound/pci/snd-intel8x0.ko

The snd_ens1371 driver used by my SB16 PCI is a AC97 chipset, too:

# cat /proc/asound/modules
0 snd_ens1371
# modprobe --show-depends snd_ens1371
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/sound/core/snd-page-alloc.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/sound/soundcore.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/sound/core/snd.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/sound/core/snd-timer.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/sound/core/snd-pcm.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/sound/pci/ac97/snd-ac97-bus.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/sound/pci/ac97/snd-ac97-codec.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/sound/core/seq/snd-seq-device.ko

oh yeah. you're right, it is an ac97 chipset, i think. cuz my other winxp pc has an almost identical mobo and a slightly different chipset but it reads as an ac97 sound & network chip.

also, i don't know if it makes a difference or not, but i'm on kernel 2.6.20-13 on kubuntu 7.04 beta.

Anyone have any pointers to compiling on Ubuntu edgy?

It only has libgtk 2.0.

Can't figure out how to upgrade that without breaking everything else.


or if anyone has a deb done up already???

Do you mean to say that Ubuntu's cohesiveness as a distribution is so tenuous that upgrading a single package could potentially break the system? That seems pretty terrible. Yikes. eek

Also, I don't see how "just" having libgtk 2.0 is a problem - AFAIK (although the libgtk.org documentation is fuzzy on this point) I don't think I'm using any of the newer features yet, although PR5 definitely will (sorry, the canned messagebox class is way too useful).

Well, I got it to compile under ubuntu, I was just a idiot on how I needed to install the dev packages.

you didn't have to compile, unless you wanted to....
c falco has a thread on this very forum with ubuntu deb packages available all the way up to 0.113u3...

UPDATE: @ enik
just fyi, i looked at a program i have installed called "KDE HAL Device Manager" and my sound chipset is indeed listed as ac97. specifically: 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller.
