excuse my bad English... I am Peruvian

I love seeing my puppy linux 4.00 in p2, 350mhz, 128MB RAM, 8MB video

But I have always had a big problem with the sound, does not detect alsa 1.0.8

install vector linux with alsa 1.0.12 (I think that was the version of alsa) and detected correctamene

an I upgrade Alsa? or what is the solution

I am very novice in Linux, but I used puppy 2.17 3.01r3 4.0, I welcome the speed and ease. but the big problem has always been sound, I hope can help me, thanks

Hi hector2c

your English, no problem - my peruvian, big trouble Wink

I think this soundpro/cmedia soundchip uses soundblaster16 driver

try using alsawizard & select sb16 or legacy from list

hi aitch

I have the following list, as we understand are other alternatives drivers:

op13sa2 yamaha opl3sa2+
cs4236 cirrus logic cs4235-9
cs4232 cirrus logic cs4232
sc4231 generic cs4231
es18xx ess es18x audiodriver
es1688 generic ess es1688/es688 audiodriver
sb16 sound blaster 16
sb8 sound blaster 1.0/2.0/pro

use sb16, sb8 and sc4231, but I did not get results, I do not have much knowledge, I do something wrong?

I love puppy, would be perfect with sound

in all but sb16 disabled list, but still no result, did I do wrong?

The problem is that the "legacy" ALSA driver section only lists non-PnP audio cards, but Linux typically has trouble detecting quite a few ISA cards, whether PnP or not.
The solution is to manually configure the correct ALSA drivers for your card. Your driver for your C-Media CMI8330 audio chip should be "snd-cmi8330".
Open /etc/modprobe.conf in Geany, and add these lines -
Code:
alias snd-card-0 snd-cmi8330
alias sound-slot-0 snd-cmi8330

Reboot.
You might still need to run alsamixer (in the console) and press "m" to unmute the master channel.
