If anyone is running gentoo trying to get alsa working with the asus a7n8x deluxe this is how I did it.

I used 2.4.21-pre5-ac3 kernel (with amd viper for ide)

root@lieutenant uniplex # hdparm -i /dev/hda | grep -i udma
UDMA modes: udma0 udma1 udma2 udma3 udma4 *udma5 udma6

I followed the guide at http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/alsa-guide.xml only difference was for alsa-driver I did cd /usr/portage/media-sound/alsa-driver; emerge alsa-driver-0.9.1.ebuild This alsa driver worked. emerge alsa-driver didn't.

When I compiled the kernel I made soundcore a module and nothing else for sound. And I made sure it wasn't loaded when I did emerge alsa-driver-0.9.1.ebuild.

Although this guide is nice, though it is RH oriented. Any chance for a Man9.0 version?

Sorry, I don't use Mandrake, so I won't be writing a guide for installing with it. However, if you read through the guide I wrote I think practically all of it should be applicable to Mandrake as well. You may want to get the rawhide RPMs from the Mandrake Cooker instead. And where I have you edit the sysconfig files, you can see if that works for Mandrake, but if they're not there, I'm sure posting around in a mandrake forum will tell you how to change the harddrive settings.

To set the drive to UDMA5 (if your kernel supports it but doesn't autodetect it, look at the /sbin/hdparm parameter -X in the manpage (man hdparm).

Default Sounds problems

Great guide, although I couldn't quite get it to work.

Redhat 8.0 is up and running, but I don't have sound or GLX (had to disable it in XF86Config in order to load X11). I'm a bit of a newbie to linux (coming to it from Mac OS X), so I may be overlooking something that will be obvious to those of you with more experience.

When I try to launch ALSA Sound Mixer, I get an empty window. If I select preferences from the file menu, I get an error: "Application "gnome-alsamixer" (process 22744) has crashed due to a fatal error. (segmentation fault)"

In var/log/messages I have:

Mar 25 21:44:41 localhost alsasound: Starting sound driver: snd-intel8x0
Mar 25 21:44:41 localhost kernel: intel8x0: clocking to 47432
Mar 25 21:44:41 localhost alsasound: done
Mar 25 21:44:41 localhost alsasound: No mixer config in /etc/asound.state, you h$Mar 25 21:44:41 localhost rc: Starting alsasound: succeeded

This makes me think that the drive is working, but perhaps I'm wrong?

If anyone has any ideas, or can tell me where to start looking, I'd sure appreciate it.

Thumbs up Mandrake 9.1 and A7N8X Deluxe

I just switched from Redhat 8.0 to Mandrake 9.1, And I must say I'm quite happy with it. Everything worked fine, just by installing the CD's , ofcourse for better video qualety on my Geforce 4 I had to instal the nvidia driver , which has become also verry easy.
The only remarks I have are : I'm not using the Nvidia ethernet, I'dont know about IDE or AGP acceleration and what is most bothering to me is that my sound is only in stereo. Is this just a setting somewhere, ore do I need to indstall an other driver.
What I also would like to know is: If installed the nvidia nforce driver, what will I gain ?

sound: the "nvidia sound driver" is simply a patch for the kernel sound module (i810)

afaik this module supports only stereo, have a look at the alsa sound modules. they should support 5.1 (http://www.alsa-project.org/ )
