eeePC 900 sound

Hello (again). After a long period, I though about trying AROS again. This time with a small "netbook" of the yesteryears, an Asus eee PC 900 (the original, with 16Gb SSD that came with Xandros linux distro).

Installation and everything else went relatively well (although it would help tremendously if there was an installation image available that could be written to a USB disk, without the need for the DVD at all).


Anyways, from what I can see, everything else seems to work reasonably well (I haven't tried network yet, so that might raise up to be a nuisance still :D ), but I can't get any sound out of the device.

I checked the HCL and it lists the eee PC as working with sound, but tested with AspireOS distro.

So, my question is: What's there in AsipreOS (related to eee PC) that enables the sound and can I get it from the AspireOS DVD and into the Icaros installation on my eeePC?

According to PCI Tool, the sound is:
Multimedia Audio
Intel Corporation
02801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) High Definition Audio Controller
Vendor 0x8086 Product 0x2668

There's a "hdaudio: HiFi 16 bit stereo++" entry in the AHI prefs, but even with practically "trying everything" with that, there's no sound.


EDIT:

nvm.

found the page where it is suggested to add QUERY to top of ENVARC:hdaudio.config. Actually was there, but commented out. Just removed the ; in front of it and now sound works.

Now for the network... :P

Nice to know you figured how to fix the audio issue.

Now for networking: can you please tell what chipsets are used for wired and wireless networking on the eeepc 900? I barely remember at least one of them should be correctly handled by AROS, so Icaros as well.
