Default redhat 8 no audio for the nforce i810

Hi,
I have redhat 8 installed on a MSI K7N420. I have downloaded all the nvidia src drivers. I installed the video drivers and have my nvidia card working (not the integrated one) I downloaded the nforce unified src drivers made them and then did a make make install. Afterwhich it kuzu found my integrated nic (the integrated sound and usb was found prior to these drivers) However I am not getting any sound. Redhat has
Vendor: nVidia Corporation
Model: nForce Audio
Module: i810_audio
However any program i run that makes sound i get either a sound device not configured or check that another application isn't using it. All generic errors. Any ideas on what I could do or where to check?
Thanks in advance.

Check your /etc/modules.conf (or config.modules)

about the line

alias sound-slot-1 i810_audio

then try a "depmode -a" and then
"modprobe i810_audio"

or at first a "insmod i810_audio"

Default not working but i may be doing it wrong

when i add those lines to my modules.conf

alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
alias usb-controller usb-ohci
alias sound-slot-1 i810_audio
post-install sound-slot-1 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-1 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
alias eth0 3c59x
alias char-major-195 NVdriver
alias eth1 nvnet

I get errors on lines i add your suggestions
also when i manually do an insmod i810_audio i get:
[root@localhost jgreenaw]# /sbin/insmod i810_audio
Using /lib/modules/2.4.18-17.8.0/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o

/lib/modules/2.4.18-17.8.0/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o: unresolved symbol

Thanks in advance.

ac97_codec is a mixer module, you need it.

check your gcc compiler version "gcc -v" and that compiler version which
has been used to compile your system kernel and other loadable moduls via a
"cat /proc/version ".

Try also a "/sbin/insmod -f i810_audio" and then start the mixer, if sound is
working, fine. If not, try to download the respective nforce package
rpm with PRE-COMPILED drivers for Redhat 8.0.

Default 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
/lib/modules/2.4.18-17.8.0/kernel/drivers/sound/ac97.o
/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
Configured with: ../configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --enable-shared --enable-threads=posix --disable-checking --host=i386-redhat-linux --with-system-zlib --enable-__cxa_atexit
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 (bhcompile@porky.devel.redhat.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.

Ohh, this all seems to be really a bit strange.
And the module 'soundcore' (lsmod should show it) is also running?

Well, let's check whether or not
you can hear at least a bit of a cuckoo cry in your headphone or speaker:
I attach you a very small wav.file with a big frequency change in sound.

run "cat /dev/dsp0 > <this file>" and/or
"cat /dev/audio0 > <this file>"

as root and listen. I've named it "test.txt".
