I've had partial success : I use isapnp to set up the IRQs/IOaddresses, because
sndconfig doesn't work with it. Basically, you need isapnp to return "enabled
for all the logical devices on the board, then load the appropriate modules. I
still haven't got midi to work though. Here is what I have in /etc/conf.modules:
alias sound-slot-0 sound
alias sound-service-0-3 midi # probably wrong!
alias sound ad1848 # actually the chip is ad1845
options ad1848 io=0x530 irq=5 dma=1 dma2=0
pre-install sound insmod sound dmabuf=1
alias midi opl3 # module won't load!
options opl3 io=0x388
modprobe sound and see what happens
Like I say, I still haven't got midi to work, I may have the wrong
