got the "Intel 82801G ICH7 Family" sound card to work.



I have a T60 widescreen laptop with this soundcard:
Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition
Audio Controller (rev 02)

That audio device, though supposedly supported, will not work out of
the box for many distributions I found out after smashing my head
against the wall for some time.

Well, I got it working and filed a bug because the hack shouldn't be necessary:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=222606

I thought I would share in case anyone else has had that problem, and
from the looks of it, a lot of folks are running into this. So... this
is what I did:
1. I ensured my box has the latest alsa
2. I added these two lines to /etc/rc.local:
modprobe -r snd_hda_intel
modprobe snd_hda_intel

Reboot and sound should work.
