Yes they are---
Say Y here to include support for the integrated AC97 sound
device on motherboards with Intel/SiS/nVidia/AMD chipsets, or
ALi chipsets using the M5455 Audio Controller. (There is a
separate driver for ALi M5451 Audio Controllers.)
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module
will be called snd-intel8x0.
Say Y or M if you have a PCI sound card utilizing the Trident
4DWave-DX/NX chipset or your mother board chipset has SiS 7018
or ALi 5451 built-in. The SiS 7018 PCI Audio Core is embedded
in SiS960 Super South Bridge and SiS540/630 Single Chipset.
The ALi 5451 PCI Audio Core is embedded in ALi M1535, M1535D,
M1535+ or M1535D+ South Bridge.
Use lspci -n to find out if your sound card or chipset uses
Trident 4DWave or SiS 7018. PCI ID 1023:2000 or 1023:2001 stands
for Trident 4Dwave. PCI ID 1039:7018 stands for SiS7018. PCI ID
10B9:5451 stands for ALi5451.
This is kernel 2.6.10-rc2-bk7, and alsa-driver-1.0.7
So you probably want to dig out your mobo manual and see if you can get
more information on just what chipset is at work here.
Maybe you're just using the wrong drivers.
You might also want to check if you've enabled the I2C bus for your mobo
chipset-- I'm not quite sure what it is, but if the kernel has gone to
so much trouble to include some special support for my mobo's particular
version of it in the kernel, I figure I should enable it ;-) . It might
be important, and might be some dependency of the sound drivers (or
other similar onboard components).
