When I try to run /usr/bin/system-config-soundcard to configure my soundcard on Fedora Core 1 with the latest kernel 2.6.1 from rawhide, I get the following error:

The via82cxxx_audio driver could not be loaded. This soundcard may not be compatible with Red Hat Linux.

When I run system-config-soundcard I get this error. My soundcard is working. System-config soundcard is not working properly yet.

You might try to look up information regarding your card and alsa drivers. My card needs oss emulation drivers to work.

I used this information from a post that Warren Togami posted earlier. I believe that the oss emulation drivers are common links, regardless of the card selected. You might try loading the modules for OSS emulation. (And file a bug report, initscripts and system-config-soundcard)

What exactly is on your modules.conf, and what kernel modules do you
call at system startup?

Thanks for your help,

/etc/modules.conf contains:

alias eth0 3c59x
alias eth1 ne2k-pci
# Note: for use under 2.6, changes must also be made to modprobe.conf!
alias sound-slot-0 i810_audio
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :

/etc/modprobe.conf contains:

# Note: for use under 2.4, changes must also be made to modules.conf!
include /etc/modprobe.conf.dist
alias eth0 3c59x
alias eth1 3c59x
alias sound-slot-0 snd-intel8x0
install sound-slot-0 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install sound-slot-0 && /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :

But to get sound to actualy function using the 2.6 kernel. I had to add the other stuff to /etc/rc.d/rc.local
modprobe snd-seq-oss
modprobe snd-pcm-oss
modprobe snd_intel8x0

This is a development installation and I haven't used a 2.4 kernel on the system. Looking through the output lists above. It looks like snd-intel8x0 does not work but snd_intel810 does. I did not have sound until I addemodprd the later.

A partial output of lsmod shows these related to sound. I'm a bit confused with the underscore or the dash in the module names.
