Subjectno ALSA sound in 2.6 on Intel 82801CA-ICH3 - OSS works
I'm a bit ashamed about posting this, but I couldn't find anyone with
a similar problem googling. I admit up front that I'm ALSA-ignorant
so this could well be a silly configuration issue...

This is a Dell Latitude C640 with

00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corp. 82801CA/CAM AC'97 Audio (rev 02)

I tried using ALSA in kernel or modular, but the three apps I use
(xmms, xine and gmplayer) all report -ENODEV on /dev/dsp. This is
/var/log/messages with in-kernel ALSA:

Dec 28 10:53:41 incident kernel: Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 0.9.7 (Thu Sep 25 19:16:36 2003 UTC).
Dec 28 10:53:41 incident kernel: intel8x0: clocking to 48000
Dec 28 10:53:41 incident kernel: ALSA device list:
Dec 28 10:53:41 incident kernel: #0: Intel 82801CA-ICH3 at 0xd800, irq 11

and the card appears to be properly detected under /proc/asound;
this is the output when loaded as modular:

[asuardi@incident asound]$ ls

Compiled on Jan 3 2004 for kernel 2.6.1-rc1.

Using i810_audio from OSS just works; in 2.4 I've always been
using OSS successfully, ALSA never worked in any 2.5.x I've

Thanks in advance,
