DMA probs (sound card)

Post by PoD » Wed, 24 May 2000 04:00:00

I have an Aztech Labs sound galaxy sound card, often when I boot the
computer and try to use /dev/dsp, I get DMA timeouts.
If I unload and reload the sound modules, soundcore,sound,ad1848 and
sgalaxy, it invariably works fine.
I'm running RH 6.0 with kernel 2.2.15. Same happened with 2.2.12 and

Can anyone give me a clue?



1. Sound card probs, modem probs. Help im cut off!!!!

Help me :::runs into linux vets:::

Well I need help with me sound card and modem. I have an AudioPCI for a
sound card and it will not work. I do not know if this is due to
changes, if any,  that gateway had the company do to it. The kernel is
compiled for AudioPCI support so I have no idea why it will not work.

My modem for some strang reason will not work on linux right now :( I
think it is due to the jumpers not being configured right on it but I am
not sure. It is a 3com U.S Robotics 56k Data/Fax/Voice v.90/x2 for an
ISA slot. It is not a winmodem :P

Please If any one can help out please do. I really want to make Linux my
prim OS and only use Windows when i have to. These two things are the
only thing keeping me from using linux for more then 2 or 3 hours a day.

Thanks for the help,
