I test the card with a knoppic distribution and it works fine:
To my knowledge, it a AMD SB600 chipset and the audio is:
5.1 CH HD Audio (VIA® VT1705 Audio Codec)


So, the hardware is OK. Next step would seem to be to test it with a
liveCD of F16. If that works, then it is something in your
configuration blocking it. Look in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf to see
if it is blacklisted for some reason. This is a long shot.

I have:
# sound drivers
blacklist snd-pcsp



Probably the driver is mising in the kernel
and I need to add the module?


Seems like as good a reason as any. But why?

The kernel alsa sound docs suggest that this card is automatically
supported.

VIA VT17xx/VT18xx/VT20xx
========================
auto BIOS setup (default)

So it might be that the Knoppix kernel has the sound driver compiled in
rather than loading as a module, thus bypassing any module loading
issues.

You could try, as root,
modprobe -v VT17xx

FATAL: Module VT17xx not found.

What provide such a m�odule?

to see if it will load the driver. If it doesn't, it should give you
some errors.
