Default Does nVidia linux_nforce_1.0-0246 driver support nforce2 ?

I've bought a Leadtek motherboard based on nforce2 chipset.
I'm using RedHat 8.0.
I've compiled and installed linux_nforce_1.0-0246 nforce driver (source RPM).

The network nvnet device works fine but I can't get the audio part of the nforce2 working.
When i modprobe i810_audio, it complains that:
/lib/modules/2.4.18-18.8.0/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.18-18.8.0/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18-18.8.0/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.18-18.8.0/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o: insmod i810_audio failed

Where does the problem come from ?
Drivers don't support nforce2 ?
RedHat 8.0 ?
Am i doing something wrong ?

I would appreciate help.

Thanks in advance.

The short of it is not yet, but it's easy to fix. The support for the nForce1 uses the i810 audio driver. The nForce2 can work with the same driver, but the i810 audio driver doesn't yet recognize it. To make the i810 audio driver recognize the nForce2, you need to add it's PCI ID to the source file and recompile it. There is advice on how to do this in prior threads on this forum (some less than a week old). If you dig back a little, you should be able to find what you need.

nVidia just released the 0248 drivers today, and they do natively support the nForce2. No more tweaking the source!

Cuc - That's odd, because the leadtek motherboard uses C-Media audio, not the onboard Nvidia stuff. The NV APU is there, but it's not hooked up to anything. If you rmmod i810_audio/nvaudio, do you still get sound?

Whoops. I just now noticed that the -PRO variant does indeed use nvaudio. Please disregard my last post.
