awe64 sound setup

Post by douglas » Sat, 25 Apr 1998 04:00:00



I'm having trouble getting my awe64 going. Can someone please help me.
I have followed a couple of howto's and when i try to do "modprobe -a
sound" it says
"Can't open dependancies file /lib/modules/2.0.33/modules.dep (No such
file or directory)"
this file does exists. And as you see I have linux 2.0.33
also in some doco I've been following it says I should have
"AWE32 support (CONFIG_AWE32_SYNTH) [Y/n/?]" in the kernel config. It
isn't there.

I hope you read the AWE64 minihowto. Well, I did it and it works like
a clockwork. Remeber to add those two extra IO lines to the
isapnp.conf that pnpdump can find by it self ( read the example
isapnp.conf in the AWE64 Minihowto ).

The AWE64 Mini Howto can be found on.

If you don't mind spending $30 OSS has a driver that works very well and
gives you more use of the card's capabilities than the free OSS driver

Hi. I'm a chanop in IRC EFnet #linux. colorg is the nick.
two other channel regulars have help files for AWE
cards, which I have on my page at
http://cqi.com/~humbubba/linux.html

I believe the AWE cards are PnP. There's a PnP kernel
patch package out there that adds 6k or so to the
kernel. That might help.

1. Sound Blaster AWE64 setup problems

I am running rh linux 6.0, kernel 2.2.5-15.  I
just upgraded from 5.2 and I cannot get the sound
card to work correctly.

This is my sndstat:

============================

When I log in as root and run sndconfig it runs
fine -- no errors at all and both samples play.

I can cat .au files and pipe them to /dev/audio
and they play, but esdplay, wavplay, and other
applications (like those under X or in gnome) that
should make sould do not work.  I can get playmidi
to work with the -a flag.

What is going on??  How do interperet the outputs above?
I have no idea how to debug this and begin to get a handle
on what is going wrong.

Thanks for any help in advance.
