    SoundCard: onboard sound vs PCI card

    Hi,

    I just installed RH7.3. I have a PCI SoundBlaster and a Microstar MotherBoard w/ integrated sound.

    RH recongnizes both of them. However I want to use the PCI card. when I run sndconfig it tries to configure the onboard controller.

    I took the pci card out and rebooted then put it back in and let kudzo try to configure it. it does but no sound comes out. is there way to tell sndconfig to configure the PCI sound blaster??

    Most of the onboard Sound/modem/NIC comes with way to disable via jumper. Check your MB manual to find how to disable it. Then you will be able to configure it for your PCI card.

    I too have onboard sound. However I'm not positive mine has a jumper but there should also be some bios settings to disable it as well.

    Actually I figured it out.

    I just ran sndconfig and chose the PCI card even though I didn't hear any audio.

    then I rebooted.

    now it works!!!!

    thanx,

    My ECS mobo with onboard audio has a BIOS setting to enable or disable the AC97 audio.
