Did you try to compile the OSS-Driver into the Kernel, not as module? I had
similar problems and after compiling oss into the kernel it had
worked.............

My SB 16 sound card is detected, but no sound makes it to the speakers.

Configuration in /etc/conf.modules :
options sb irq=5 io=0x220 dma=1
alias sound sb  

modprobe sb says :
Sep 15 09:25:01 faure kernel: Soundblaster audio driver Copyright (C) by
Hannu Savolainen 1993-1996
Sep 15 09:25:01 faure kernel: SB 4.16 detected OK (220)

Looks ok to me :)

But cat /dev/sndstat gives :

OSS/Free:3.8s2++-971130
Load type: Driver loaded as a module
Kernel: Linux faure 2.2.15-4mdksmp #1 SMP Wed May 10 14:35:15 CEST 2000 i686
Config options: 0

Installed drivers:

Card config:

Audio devices:
0: Sound Blaster 16 (4.16)

Synth devices:

Midi devices:

Timers:
0: System clock

Mixers:
0: Sound Blaster

There's noting in Installed drivers nor in Card config...... Where should I
look for fixing this ?
All the cat blah.au > /dev/audio and other things supposed to play sound
seem to work (it runs just the right time), but no sound. I've checked
volumes and mixer settings, all seem ok there.

Thanks !

PS : I can trade 5 answers to KDE problems for a valid answer to this ;-)

Enjoy the silence ;)

Okay, I just hate ISA PnP but due to no more free PCI slot(s) ::
options sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330

Yes, no alias.

Yep.

Quote:>Synth devices:

Yep ( did not configure )

Quote:>Midi devices:

[-]
0: Sound Blaster 16

Quote:>Timers:
>0: System clock

[-]
Yep.

Quote:>Mixers:
>0: Sound Blaster

[-]
Yep.

My configuration is ( 2.2.17 ) ::
CONFIG_SOUND=m
CONFIG_SOUND_OSS=m
CONFIG_SOUND_SB=m
CONFIG_SOUND_MPU401=m
CONFIG_SOUND_YM3812=m
CONFIG_LOWLEVEL_SOUND=y
CONFIG_AWE32_SYNTH=m

You may have a look whether all the modules are there, but
mind I'm anything but a sound card expert. Just wanted to
watch the BBC news with commentaries on line ;)

Cheers,
Juergen

Try this, it is what RH 6.1 sndconfig set up for my SB16 (non-PnP) which
also works in Mandrake 7.0:

alias sound sb
pre-install sound /sbin/insmod sound dmabuf=1
alias midi opl3
options opl3 io=0x388
options sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=3 dma16=7 mpu_io=0x330

1. CONTEST !! : Almost LINUX in almost 2Mb

------ CONTEST,  WIN A HOLOGRAM -------

For real cracks here comes a real challenge...

I'm trying to setup Linux in a 386 with 2 Mbytes of memory. I have a
distribution of slackware on my HDD that works on a 4Mb machine.

Booting from harddisk didn't work, Probably the generic kernel is too
big. So I made a new bootdisk with a newly compiled kernel.

Booting now succeeds until the login prompt. Except for the fsck.
Fsck quits because it's not able to allocate memory for a inode table.

After logging in, I can run most built in shell commands. But external
commands - which are executed by fork - gave the error :

"bash:fork:Try Again"

Here are a few data and figures:
AMIBIOS 1990 (Colorized BIOS SetupScreen)
AMD 386dx 40,
64kB cache,
2 MB main memory
including 384 kB shadow Ram.
Kernelsize: 502 kB (expanded)
Linux reports:
  "1020kB (free) 2048kB (total) 502kB(kernelsize) 384kB (reserved)
140kB (data)"

Switching between shadow ram on and off doesn't seem to matter. In
both cases the linux boot screen shows 384 kB reserved Ram.

Questions:
- What is the configuration for the smallest kernel (e.g. Can I leave
out the networking code (like TCP/IP etc.))
- Is there a CMOS-setting which really disables Shadow Ram?
- Is the shadowram the cause of memory problems?

The most succesfull contribution which leads to running linux on this
machine, wins a reflection full color rainbow HOLOGRAM (12 cm x 9 cm).

- THIS IS NO JOKE,  you'll get it -
