Hello,
Am new to LINUX and recently tried using puppy1.0.8 (the most recent).
Unfortunately I am having trouble making sound work.
ALSA recognizes my sound card as "intel8x0", and when I run # lsmod (as suggested in included help guide) I see the following modues have loaded;
snd-intel8x0
snd-ac97-codec
snd-pcm
snd-timer
snd
soundcore
Still, no sound Sad
For reference, my board is a CHAINTECH CT-7NJL6 w/C-Media onboard audo (AC97 codec).
Any help would be gratly appreciated.
Bear in mind that I am very new to linux, so in response assume I know very little

No need to reply.
For anyone with a similiar problem, the olution was to unload "snd_intel8x0" module and load "nvsound" module.
Sound worked perfect after that.

first type lsmod and see if "snd-intel8x0" is loaded.
if it is, download the attached file into "/root" and type the following into a shell:
rmmod snd-intel8x0
insmod /root/nvsound.o.gz
run lsmod again to make sure it loaded and you should be all set w/audio Smile
nvsound.o.gz

That's the OSS driver I originally posted here http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=7005

Now that Puppy has ALSA drivers, it would be better if you nForce users could try the modified ALSA module (plus /root/.asoundrc file) and report your success or failure - http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=7378
