Default nForce2 Sound and LAN under Red Hat 8

Hi, I am a Linux noobie.

Can someone direct me where to find help for making this combination work?

I tried installing rpm from nVidia site but with no luck. No sound so far, as for the LAN I could'nt be sure because I don't have LAN connection yet.

My HW specs are:
- MBO EpoX 8RDA+ (nForce2 chipset, MCP-T southbridge, SPP northbridge)
- ATI Radeon 9100
- 2 x 256MB PC2700 Samsung DDR
etc.

Linux distribution is: Red Hat 8.0

Thank You!

Did the RPM install successfully? If so, what happens when you run "depmod -a"? Do you get any errors? If not then try running "modprobe -a i810_audio nvnet". That should enable both audio and ethernet.

I think everything went fine. I didn't get any error messages that I know of.
I'm writing this posts from WinXP (I have a dual boot - Linux on another HD) so I'll try this commands and post the results when I reboot to Linux.

Thank You!

Default you need 3 files

did you download 3 rpm's....

1) Nvidia_kernel
2)Nvidia_glx
3) Nforce

file #3 controls sound and vid, so make sure you installed that one...

I tried running "depmode -a" and there are no errors and this is the output of "modprobe -a i810_audio nvnet" :
"/lib/modules/2.4.19-16mdk/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o.gz: 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
modprobe: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.19-16mdk/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o.gz failed"

I have no options of selecting or setting IRQs or other resources in BIOS (only 'AUTO' and 'Disabled').

In the attachment is the output of 'dmesg' command. Maybe that will help?

It looks like your audio should be working as your dmesg output indicates that the hardware was found properly. The modprobe i810_audio probably gave you an error because you're already using the nvaudio driver. (I had forgotten that nvidia's version is named differently.) Have you checked your mixer volume levels?

I tried 'Sound test' or 'Play sound' (I can't remember exactly) button in Control Center's Sound Card section.
I have listed two sound card devices (probably DD encoding part and output part) but no sound plays when I click on the button to test the sound. I haven't looked at mixer. To tell You the truth I haven't found it yet.
I do get sound which probably should go to the beeper (but I have none connected to the MBO) - a beep when I, for example, push arrow down button and have reached the end of the history buffer. This is quite annoying because the sound level of this beep is very high (like when all sliders in the mixer are all the way up in WinXP for example) and I jitter every time I here it.

I'll look around a bit more.
Thank You!
