Hi! I just installed RedHat 7.1 on a dual-boot Compaq E4600 (Pentium
4, 30GB HD, 256MB RAM) system, with Windoze 2000 on the other
Most things worked fine out of the box -- dual boot (in spite of dire
warnings that I might have to use the boot floppy), video, network,
The sound card, however, isn't working.
Sndconfig correctly identifies it as a Creative Labs SoundBlaster Live!
Looking at the /var/log/messages file after running
sndconfig, I find:
May 2 07:40:12 butner kernel: Creative EMU10K1 PCI Audio Driver,
version 0.7, 20:53:49 Apr 8 2001
May 2 07:40:12 butner kernel: PCI: Found IRQ 3 for device 02:0a.0
May 2 07:40:12 butner kernel: EMU10K1 rev 7 model 0x8032 found, IO at
0xdf80-0xdf9f, IRQ 3
May 2 07:40:12 butner modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module
On the Windoze side, the card is noted to be a Creative SB Live!(WDM),
but at IRQ number 9. The IO address 0xdf80-0xdf9f is the same.
It's identified at PCI slot 2 (PCI bus 2, device 10, function 0).
So, I see two differences and one worrying error:
I don't know if there is a difference between a SoundBlaster Live!
EM10000 and a SoundBlaster Live! (WDM)
I don't know if the IRQ 3 vs IRQ 9 thing is a problem or reflects
a software reset.
I don't know what the "can't locate module sound-service-0-0"
error implies -- is this a module I should find somewhere on
the distribution diskette? If so, how can I force it to load?
Any pointers would be appreciated!
