nForce + RHL 7.3
My board is a MSI 420 K7N Pro w/ nVidia nForce chipset for sound and ethernet.

X is running fine, but I've yet to get any sound.
The file I used was NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0236.src.rpm

1) Gave this command:
#rpm --rebuild NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0236.src.rpm

2) cd'ed into /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386

3) Gave command:
#rpm -ivh NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0236.i386.rpm

Driver installed w/o any error.

4)Ran this to configure s/card:


[PCI Probe Results]
A sound card was found in your system. The details are:
Model: nVidia Corporation|
unknown device 10de:01b0

The nVidia Corporation|
unknown device 10de:01b0 is not supported

Took a look into /lib/modules/2.4.18-3/kernel/drivers/sound
and there is a nvaudio.o file (There's also a file w/ a name of nvaudio.o~)

Tried insmod that file and got this error

Warning: loading nvaudio.o will taint the kernel: no license
nvaudio.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters

Apparently, something's wrong w/ the card IO or IRQ. What do I do to get the correct settings?

Do I need to recompile my kernel?
It seems that everytime I recompile the kernel X wont want to start again.
The only luck i've had w/ X is without a kernel recompile.

Any suggestions are appreciated :)

You don't have to use the nforce audio module. The i810 audio module works too. The driver supports the nforce but I think RH made a misstake. I think they forgot or didn't know that the nforce audio stuff works with the i810 driver and because of that sndconfig doesn't support it.

But what do I need to do now?

Would removing NVIDIA_nforce package do the trick?
And do I need to run sndconfig again after it has been removed?

Thanx again.

Thanx a lot Tbird.

Now I've got nForce working fine.
You're right. with the nForce driver installed sndconfig had a problem configuring the correct h/ware, at least that's what I understood.

I just removed the package
#rpm -e NVIDIA_nforce

and reran sndconfig
#sndconfig --noprobe

and chose Intel AC97 from the list. And there was a little sound test and now all is fine!

Thanx for the info, mate :)

Xine is cool! For the first I watched a movie in Linux! Phantom Menace :D

XMMS runs fine in KDE 3.0, but it doesnt give any output sound in Gnome. I/O sound settings are both the same in KDE and Gnome. And I've tried different settings in Gnome, but to no avail.

Any ideas?

as how i understand it, when nforce kernel drivers are properly installed (no errors whatsoever..) it patches the i_810 drivers for audio. and the nvidia manual asks you to add an alias to i_810 named nvudio. this is what you load to get the sound properly in everything. if you remove nvidia kernel, you'll be left with the unpatched i_810 (i guess) and that might work partially well. so the best solution is to keep the nvidia kernel drivers (else you'll lose lan and USB) and use the patched i_810 drivers.

visit http://www.nforcershq.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=29, we just started a dedicated nForce-Linux topic there that has a detailed installation guide.
