SubjectVia onboard audio

I've recently purchased a Compaq Presario 700 laptop that has a Via
motherboard with onboard audio.

When I load the via82cxxx_audio driver (kernel 2.4.12), I hear the
speakers pop, but no sound ever plays. I'm check the mixer, and the
volume is up as necessary. Interrupts are occuring for the device in
/proc/interrupts. All the necessary (that I know of) modules are
loaded, such as sound/soundcore/ac97_codec.

I tried the ALSA drivers as well, and had less success. For them, I had
to use the Via 686a driver (/proc/pci reports that I have a VT82C686).
However, althouh the driver loaded, and I head my speakers pop, ALSA
utils reported that i had no configured sound cards, and no OSS based
utils worked (/dev/dsp and /dev/mixer reported invalid devices). I did
go thru and make sure my ALSA /dev entries were created and correct.

So now I'm back to the OSS drivers, but still no luck. If there's
anymore information I can post to figure out how to get this to work, or
maybe modify some drivers, please let me know what I need to do. I
don't want to have to use another OS just to hear sound. ~,^

Thanks everyone,
