the wierd thing
i did a:
[root@localhost jgreenaw]# /sbin/depmod -v | grep ac97
user function /lib/modules/2.4.18-17.8.0/kernel/drivers/sound/ac97.o
user function /lib/modules/2.4.18-17.8.0/kernel/drivers/sound/ac97_codec.o
so i have them,
I also did a:
[root@localhost jgreenaw]# gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.2/specs

Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.2 20020903 (Red Hat Linux 8.0 3.2-7)
[root@localhost jgreenaw]# cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.4.18-17.8.0 (email@example.com) (gcc version 3.2 20020903 (Red Hat Linux 8.0 3.2-7)) #1 Tue Oct 8 11:48:09 EDT 2002
so those are the same.
Additionally what I don't get is that there isn't any errors when redhat installs or configures the device, in fact it doesn't look like there should be anything wrong with it.
(for anyone worrying i tried all plugs, there is power, and the speakers are new)
Is there any service that could grabbing it? i checked esd, i didn't see it running.
Are there any configuration displays that i could provide that would help debug?
thanks in advance.
