sound on ibm netvista
 
I bought a used IBM Netvista machine and alsaconf cannot find the
on board sound card. I really need a lot of help.

I am running lenny on this machine and have not been able to find
where the problem really lies - searching the internet have left me
with pretty much nothing other than it is either a missing driver or
debian and the motherboard do not speaking the same language.

i am really a retired newby although I have used linux for more than
10 years. Please be kind.

John Song.

You might need to compile a driver (I had to for my onboard Intel audio chipset in Etch). The lspci command might yield some better information about what the sound hardware is.

Check out the alsa vendor/driver list and see if there's something that will work with your hardware:

I hope this helps.
