movix sound problems on A8N-SLI

Yo, I got this MoviX LiveCD, can run it fine, but when I play videos no sound comes out, also at the MoviX loading screen it states - 'no sound card was detected' or something like that.
Would I have to install Realtek ALC850 drivers somehow?(from a floppy)?
Or are there any similar programs that can detect my audio?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.


BTW - If you dont know wot Movix is, look it up on wikipedia, its a great linux LiveCD to play videos/CD's etc without even a hard drive

    I haven't tried MoviX but I use Knoppix ( another great Linux Live CD and DVD ) and it works most of the time.

    How recent a version of MoviX is it? Older versions some times have issues.

    I have FC4 installed on more than 4 machines and the audio works on all of them -- ASUS A8, A7, MSI K8, and a laptop.


    Please open a terminal window and run the following commands:


    cat /proc/cpuinfo > hw_info
    cat /prom/meminfob >> hw_info
    lspci >> hw_info
    dmesg >> hw_info
    lspci -vvvvvvvv >> hw_info
    lsdev lspci >> hw_info
    date >> hw_info
    uname -a >> hw_info
    [/code:1:6cabd8a298]

    then PM me the contents of the hw_info file
  2. Once I have made the hw_info file how do I put it on a floppy so I can put it on the PC that has an internet connection.

    BTW - I think it is a problem with ALSA sound drivers.

    I might get knoppix , but I only have 1 Disc Drive and no HDD,so will I be able to use Knoppix to play videos if I have to take the Live CD out.

    If your MoviX system has internet access and a web browser you could PM it to me from there. Otherwise you could put it on a USB flash drive:


    mkdir /usb
    mount /dev/sda /usb # USB flash drives are normally assigned /dev/sda - /dev/sdz

    # you can run dmesg to see what device entry it was assigned

    cp -i hw_info /usb
    sync
    umount /usb
    [/code:1:64ff939a2e]

    or floppy:

  4. Still got no sound. But no worries I'm getting my HDD soon, so I will be installing some full linux distro's. Just one thing though - I have found some drivers for Linux on my mobo CD and one of them is for the audio, if I put them on a floppy would I be able to, load them into MoviX or wud they need compiling somehow.

    BTW - I really appreciate your help so far

    I doubt the drivers are going to work... if you can modprobe or insmod that sound driver it should work.

    You could also check to see if there's a newer version of MoviX.

    Versions using the 2.6.1x Kernel are a lot better.

    Good luck
