    Intel 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) HD Sound Prob

    Trying to get Alsa setup on a Knoppix HD Install from the 4.0.1 DVD (Kernel 2.6.12)

    lspci -v shows the following:
    0000:00:1b.0 0403: Intel Corp. 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 03)
    Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company: Unknown device 2a09
    Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 16
    Memory at bfe38000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
    Capabilities: [50] Power Management version 2
    Capabilities: [60] Message Signalled Interrupts: 64bit+ Queue=0/0 Enable-
    Capabilities: [70] #10 [0091]

    Any idea what I need to modprobe or otherwise configure to get this to work?

    TIA,
    Ewan

    You could start with:
    modprobe snd-intel8x0
    modprobe snd-pcm-oss
    modprobe snd-mixer-oss
    modprobe snd-seq-oss

    Can you get alsa working in live mode with the alsa=intel8x0 cheat?
    What does cat /proc/asound/cards say?
    What about lsmod? Are the modules already loaded so you only need to pump the volume up?
    FWIW the card is recognised according to lspci

    Trick was to use modprobe snd_intel8x0m (the m is evidently important), to run Kmix (pretty standard since you have to unmute), and to put the headphones in the middle jack even though that's not how it's labelled.

    FWIW,
    Ewan
