Default nForce2 sound not working on Mandrake 9.0

Hello Guys,

Distro: Mandrake 9.0, stock kernel: 2.4.19-16

I have the ASUS A7N8X delux motherboard with the nForce2 chipset, and onboard nvidia sound card. Other hardware in the system includes GeForce4 display, maxtor had disk, samsung cd writer.

I downloaded and installed the nForce RPM (NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.mdk90up_2.4.19_16.athlon.rpm). I got the LAN card (nvnet) to work, but nvaudio does not work.

There is no sound from the speakers at all. Just to verify that the speakers are working fine, I connected the speakers to my cd player and confirmed that the speakers are working fine.

I tried manually "modprobe nvaudio". The modules (soundcore, ac97_codec, nvaudio) all load up just fine, but there is no sound at the soundcard. "modprobe i810_audio" fails: "No such device"

- "mpg123 somefile.mp3" does not give out any sound
- "xine -A oss" sometimes loads fine, but no sound. At other times, it fails to load citing problems with oss
- similarly, xmms loads fine, but fails to produce output. The bars are working, but no sound
- I downloaded a test file from the nvidia board, and did "cat file > /dev/dsp" but no sound.

The colume control also seems to be OK. I ran aumix, which reported volume at 67%.

I have read the motherboard manual and checked the BIOS to verify that all Audio related settings are enabled.

I have read about others also facing a lot of problems with nForce2 audio chipset.

My modules.conf file is:

*******
probeall scsi_hostadapter ide-scsi
alias eth0 nvnet
alias sound-slot-1 nvaudio
probeall usb-interface usb-ohci
alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia
*******

I have tried converting sound-slot-1 to sound-slot-0, no sound with that too

lsmod output:

Be shure that the link /dev/dsp is correct.
ln -s /dev/dsp0 /dev/dsp
If you have more or an old soundcard installed correct /dev/dsp(x)... or uninstall the other soundcards....
