I tried the lspci and lshw and found alot about my machine. Unfortunately the modules for the device (CS 4610/11) is i think not installed. it issues a modprobe error for the cs46xx.o:init_module: no such device
Anyway i read the man pages for the sndconfig and found out that it can be given a --noprobe parameter.
So i experimented with the different devices and found a compatible driver.
Acer Notebook Sound
I/O Port =0x220 IRQ=5 DMA=1 MPU I/O=0x330
So i have my sound now, :lol:
what do i need to do to enable the correct driver? ( not that i'm complaining with the current setup it's just that i wish to learn
thanks a lot for the time and effort in helping me
