sound on gateway solo 9100

Post by jhaug on eneti » Thu, 03 Dec 1998 04:00:00



Has anyone had any luck setting up the sound on a Gateway Solo 9100? I've
installed Redhat 5.2 (upgrading from 5.1). In both cases, installation went
fine,
XFree86 and all, but I can't get the sound to work. Using sndconfig doesn't
help.

Any help would be appreciated

I have the 9100. Here are my sound settings. All sound works. The only
comment I have is volume is a bit lower than I get under Win98, but still
quite useable.

I built the kernel to support sound with the following as 'y' answers during
the "make xconfig" process:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
- Sound Card Support
- Generic OPL2/OPL3 FM Synthesizer Support
- MPU-401 Support (Not for SB16)
- Microsoft Sound System Support
- /dev/dsp and /dev/audio Support
- MIDI Interface Support
- FM Sythesizer (YM3812/OPL-3) Support
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Then for I/O base, IRQ, and DMA settings, I use the following:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
I/O Base for MPU401 -- 330
MPU401 IRQ          -- 5

MSS/WSS I/O base    -- 530
MSS/WSS IRQ         -- 9
MSS/WSS DMA         -- 0

Audio DMA buffer    -- 65536
--------------------------------------------------------------------

I compile, and reboot and get the following from /dev/sndstat:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Sound Driver:3.5.4-960630 (Fri Oct 9 23:50:01 PDT 1998 root,
Linux myhostname 2.0.35 #32 Fri Oct 9 23:33:42 PDT 1998 i686 unknown)
Kernel: Linux myhostname 2.0.35 #33 Fri Oct 9 23:50:28 PDT 1998 i686
Config options: 0

Installed drivers:
Type 10: MS Sound System
Type 24: MS Sound System (AXP)
Type 27: Compaq Deskpro XL
Type 1: OPL-2/OPL-3 FM
Type 5: Roland MPU-401

Card config:
MS Sound System at 0x530 irq 9 drq 0
Roland MPU-401 at 0x330 irq 5 drq 0
OPL-2/OPL-3 FM at 0x388 drq 0

Audio devices:
0: MSS audio codec (CS4231)

Synth devices:
0: Yamaha OPL-3

Midi devices:
0: MPU-401 0.0  Midi interface #1

Timers:
0: System clock
1: MSS audio codec (CS4231)

Mixers:
0: MSS audio codec (CS4231)
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Hope this helps,
Paul.

Paul,

I'm sure the original question poster is grateful for your help, but thanks
also from me! I had Linux on my laptop several months ago (beta version)
and haven't yet got around to re-installing the new production code. You
just saved me some investigating and debug time because that's the one
thing I couldn't get running before. Now I've got another incentive to get
my
*in gear and do this install <grin>.  (My company mandates NT 4.0 on
this machine, but they didn't say I couldn't ALSO load a real operating
system on that other partition...)

[Having just read someone else's flamewar about RedHat, I thought perhaps
a positive-feedback post might be nice. :-) ]

Thanks again...people like you are why I like open source software.

Scott

 
 
 

1. Sound on a Gateway Solo 9100

I am running a laptop (Gateway Solo 9100) with Slackware 8.1 (Linux
kernel 2.4.18) and am having trouble getting sound working. I recently
got a minor improvement, as I went from having no sound at all to some
noise, but sound files now play by repeating small (0.5 seconds or so)
samples two or three times in a row before moving on. Based on people
with similar problems online, I currently have the following:

/etc/modules.conf:
alias sound-slot-1 opl3sa2
post-install sound-slot-1 /usr/local/bin/aumix -f /etc/.aumixrc -L
pre-remove sound-slot-1 /usr/local/bin/aumix -f /etc/.aumixrc -S
options sound dmabuf=1
#alias synth0 opl3
options opl3sa2 io=0x388
alias synth0 opl3sa2
options opl3sa2 mss_io=0x530 irq=7 dma=0 dma2=1 mpu_io=0x330 io=0x370

/etc/rc.d/rc.modules:
/sbin/modprobe soundcore
/sbin/modprobe sound
/sbin/modprobe mpu401
/sbin/modprobe ad1848
/sbin/modprobe opl3sa2

(yes, they're all used, as /sbin/lsmod says:
opl3sa2                 5868   0
ad1848                 19244   0 [opl3sa2]
mpu401                 18660   0 [opl3sa2]
sound                  52748   0 [opl3sa2 ad1848 mpu401]
soundcore               3460   6 [sound])

I would appreciate any advice/help you can offer in getting my sound
to work correctly - please write me at ude DOT tim AT kevisg but with
that address reversed.

Thank you,
Gary Sivek
