It's been about two years since I last asked about configing for this
soundcard, and I didn't get the mixer running back then... Last week
I checked DeJaNews and Altavista, and couldn't find anything new on
the use of this card... but I now ask again, since I *know* there must be
folks having some luck with this card.
I haven't tested the compile I ran last night for playing
sounds, although I had no problem with that last time around
(cat file.au >/dev/audio), but I do know that 'mixer.c' from
the sound kit still doesn't find the mixer in my new compile.
The following is my 'ls -l /dev/mix*'
crw-rw-rw- 1 root sys 14, 0 Jul 18 1994 mixer
crw-rw-rw- 1 root sys 14, 16 Jul 18 1994 mixer1
And here is my 'cat /dev/sndstat'
Config options: 31602
Type 1: OPL-2/OPL-3 FM
Type 2: SoundBlaster
Type 10: MS Sound System
(MS Sound System at 0x530 irq 10 drq 3)
SoundBlaster at 0x220 irq 5 drq 1
OPL-2/OPL-3 FM at 0x388 irq 0 drq 0
0: SoundBlaster 1.5
0: System Timer
0 mixer(s) installed
When I run 'mixer' from the soundkit, I get the following error message:
SOUND_MIXER_READ_DEVMASK: No such device or address
Looking through the source of mixer.c, nothing obvious hits me in my
nose... I to have soundcard.h in /usr/include/sys/.
Oh well, at least I got rid of that pesky "No BIOS32 extensions" boot-up
message. Oh, and yes, I am kicking the Mozart card with DOS first, and
then warm-booting into Linux (NOW using loadlin with the new kernel I
Cyrix DX2-50 on a VLB MB, 16 meg
Trident tvga9400cxi, 1meg
Mouse on /dev/cua0
Modem on /dev/cua1
1.6g IDE master disk (hda3 linux 1gig, hda4 16m swap)
343m IDE slave disk (unmounted, old system)
Panasonic CDROM on /dev/sbpcd
And for those who don't know about Mozart, I don't have my manual for
it available (left most of my data books at work this weekend, which
makes real fun for configuring) but it is jumperless, software initialized,
16 bit, SoundBlasterPro compatible (not SB-16)... but anyone who could help
probably already knows this. (Using Mozart DOS install default configs)
I *will* be following this (these) newsgroups, so you can post your
reply... might as well get some sort of how-to into the DeJaNews archives
for the next person seeking the same info.
