 +====== Intel 82801G Under Debian Etch ======
  
 +After installing Debian Etch on my PC, I was unable to hear any sound. ​ I found a thread on the issue at http://​www.linux-on-laptops.com/​forum/​showthread.php?​t=1488. ​ I followed the directions of the user who said he solved the problem by compiling alsa-source. ​ Here are my step-by-step instructions.
 +
 +1. Switch to root, install module-assistant and alsa-source,​ and then start module-assistant.
 +
 +  sudo su
 +  apt-get install module-assistant alsa-source
 +  module-assistant
 +
 +2. In module-assistant,​ select the //PREPARE// option.
 +
 +3. Choose the //SELECT// option.
 +
 +4. Check the //Alsa// box then select //OK//.
 +
 +5. Choose the //BUILD// option.
 +
 +6. When prompted, select //Yes// to download and //Yes// to install.
 +
 +7. Quit module-assistant.
 +
 +At this point, your sound should work, although you may need to restart any sound utilities. ​ It may be a good idea to reboot here.
 +
 +After one kernel update, my sound card kinda went nuts.  It basically repeats the sounds it should play over and over again, causing noise. ​ It seems like the sounds are repeating on multiple channels as well.  Repeating the process above solved that problem as well.
