NEED HELP:problem with sound card

Post by tony le » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

I m trying to setup the driver for soundblaster awe32 on SuSE Linux 6.1
i use pnpdump to make isapnp.conf with this command:
    /sbin/pnpdump -c > /etc/isapnp.conf
  after that i use
    /sbin/isapnp /etc/isapnp.conf
i got no error up to now.
so i load the driver:
/sbin/modprobe sb io=0x0220 irq=5 dma=1 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x0330
after that i verify the module
/sbin/modprobe adlib_card io=0x0388

Here is my problem: when i type this command: cat /dev/sndstat
i got error: the board is not supported(something like that)

can anyone tell me how to fix .
Thank you alot


1. Need help with "Sound 16" sound card

i'm wondering if anyone's used one of these cards and had it
configured to do what it claims it can do.

right now my 1.2.5 kernel is setup to accept the card as a
sound blaster, with "pro" "16" and "midi" options, but upon
booting, it only mentions finding a soundblaster pro 3.2 and
the yamaha opl-3 FM.

/dev/sndstat has those two under "Card Config:", as well as the

(SoundBlaster16 at 0x220 irq 5 drq 6)
(SB16 MIDI at 0x330 irq 5 drq 0)

i've been able to play mods/wavs/midis, but linuxsdoom's sndserver
complained about not being able to send 16 bit unsigned integers through.

techy stuff read off the box:

the board claims to support a MPU-401, but i havent put that into
the kernel config.  also, there are no jumpers on the board
(except for the cdrom config), since all settings are done in software :(
it mentions supporting Sound Blaster Pro, and that when windows fires up
its supposed to kick into MS Windows Sound System mode.

16 bit stereo up to 48khz
enhanced 4-operator 20-voice FM synthesis.
jumperless (all irq, drq and game port addresses software programmable)
supports mpu-401 and sound blaster midi interface.
has a joystick/midi jack
