Xwave-576 PCI Sound Card...

Post by Wyatt Draggo » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00


I just got a system that came with an Xwave 576 PCI sound card.  The
chipset on the box is listed as 'Yamaha 724 and AC97 Codec (SNR over
85db)'.  sndconfig identified it as a 'Yamaha Corporation YMF-724F [DS-1
Audio Controller]'.

Has anyone had any success getting one of these to work?  Where can I
look for more info?  I've searched the Yamaha site, and then searched
Deja, but no luck.  A couple of other people had asked, but neither got
replies (by USENET, anyway...)

I have a Sony Vaio-F480 with a Yamaha XG-SD or some such.  The only sound
driver support I found 4 months ago was the commercial OSS package at
http://www.4front-tech.com/linux.html .  It works very well for my system.

I hope there are other options now.

1. PCI Yamaha Sound Card (Xwave Direct 192 PCI) Help o : )

Hi , I just got this card, set-up in dos, (has protected-mode set-up
dos-utility program ),called `SETUPDS` for dos setup of DS-XG device.
        The card works fine in DOS\WINDOWS97? ,but soundblaster mode
doesn't get set on 'boot-up' , in Linux.
I tried running isapnp ,but it ends in an error - parameter out of

I figured that as long as I had soundblaster up in dos , that it would
working in Linux (btw-SuSE 5.3 - kernel 2.0.35 '1998' .

CD audio, MIDI(mpu401),fm , but no /dev/dsp, or /dev/audio .

Linux bootmsg , says that sound initialization is complete - with
I/O FM=338 - MPU401=330,IRQ5 - joystick=201, and that's it, There's
no soundblaster listing.

Probably someone has had the same experience with this type of `PCI`
card ,and can shed some light on how to get it set up in Linux .
Appreciate your help .
