Lightbulb Here's the fix for the SiS 7012/7018 sound problem in Mandrake 8.2

Edit your /etc/modules.conf file to either remove or comment out the two lines :

alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-intel8x0
above snd-card-intel8x0 snd-pcm-oss

...and replace them with the following line:

alias sound i810_audio

....viola! After saving and rebooting, now I gots da sound!
This probably isn't the *best* way to get the sound working, but it works fine for me. All I know is that I couldn't listen to CDs in KDE before, and now I can. Aint life grand.

Also, to get the various sound effects in KDE to function, I had to go into Control Center, go into Sound, and open up Sound Server, then go to the Sound I/O tab and click Use Custom Sound Device, and change it to /dev/sound/dsp. I know there's a better way to do this, but doing it this way is a quick fix and its easy to remember how to do.

Good luck to everyone else with the same problems I had.

sndconfig - configure sound card for use with Linux kernel modules SYNOPSIS
sndconfig {--help,--noprobe,--noautoconfig} DESCRIPTION
sndconfig sets up the necessary configuration files to use a sound card on a Red Hat system. If PnP support is compiled in, by default snd- config will do an initial probe for PnP sound cards using the pnpdump utility. If the --noprobe option is given this step will be skipped. The user will be notified if any cards were found. Otherwise the user must pick the card type from a menu. Then the user must choose the I/O port, IRQ, and DMA settings for the sound card. These must be known ahead of time and depend upon the jumper settings of the sound card. For PnP cards, the program will determine settings for the card; if the --noautoconfig option is given the user can choose the val- ues which will be programmed into the PnP device. There is no guarantee that the values entered do not conflict with an existing non-PnP or PnP device. The user must make sure these types of conflicts do not occur. OPTIONS --help Print a usage message on standard output and exit successfully. --noprobe No probe will be made for PnP cards, and the PnP configuration files will not be changed. --noautoconfig No autoconfiguration of PnP cards will be done; the user will be prompted for settings.
