What i have tried.
-I have downloaded and installed the source drivers from nvidia.com. no luck.
-I have tried sndconfig. no luck
Basically i am starting over and have reinstalled slackware 9.0. I used mandrake for a wile and audio worked but i decided to get rid of it bc i like slack better.
Ask me any thing that you like and i will post the info. Also i have made a post on linuxquestions.org where many ppl seem to have the same problem but no one has a solution. I am running kernel 2.4.20 and i heard that in later kernels support for nforce2 is built in. Is that true?
Feel free to im me on my aim screen name. p2prat
What have you tried? I got it to work in Slack9 with some effort.
First of all upgrade to kernel 2.4.21, and remember to enable AMD Viper support in IDE settings so you'll have DMA support.
As for sound, I had to enable sound support (Of course) and also support for Ensoniq 1370 cards. (Yes, even though you won't use it) If I didnt enable the 1370 card I got unresolved symbols when trying to insert the nvidia sound module.
Now, recompile the kernel and reboot with that, then just compile the nvnet and nvaudio modules, install them and load them with modprobe nvnet and modprobe nvaudio, and everything should work fine.
