This chip does NOT seem to be in my x20; is it really supposed to be in there? Capybara 04:08, 31 Oct 2005 (CET)
Run lspci, do you see an Intel AC'97 Audio Controller?
That is a generic interface to a AC'97 audio codec, in your case the CS4297A according to tawbook

Problem using snd_intel8x0 instead of snd_cs46xx
I've T21. I'am using snd_cs46xx as a sound driver, but it has bad behaviour when doing hibernation. So i tried the intel8x0 driver, but it doesn't work! Does my ThinkPad have a different soundcard? lspci:
00:05.0 Multimedia audio controller: Cirrus Logic CS 4614/22/24 [CrystalClear SoundFusion Audio Accelerator] (rev 01) Subsystem: IBM Unknown device 0153
modprobe snd_intel8x0 works (i've rmmod'ed all sound related modules before), lsmod shows it and it's dependecies, but cat /proc/asound/cards shows no cards. dmesg says nothing about sound. Do I need to load firmware, specify module params or so? Strohel 18:59, 12 November 2006 (CET)
