: I have an AWE64 PnP card and RedHat linux 4.2
: I have dowloaded the awe driver 0.4.0 from
: After that I have recompiled the kernel.
: I have installed then the midi player dowloaded from the same address.
: 1 - I have sound with "play" or "cat > /dev/audio" when using ".au" files
: I have sound (very bad quality compared to the one under ....95)
: When I record sounds from a microphone using "dd .... > sample.au" and
: play it back
: after, ther is no sound.
: Why ?
I'm not sure if I've experienced the same problem. One thing I have noticed
is that I need to initialize the drivers by running 'cat /dev/sndstat >
/dev/null' at bootup if I want to hear any output from the CD-ROM. I'm not
quite sure why this is the case. It seems to be a bug. Perhaps the
initialization or reset phase needed after the bootup is not a part of
the module's initialization function.
: 2 - When I use the midi player whith ".mid" files it seems to work fine(bar
: but there is no sound.
You need to run 'sfxload' first to initialize the SoundFonts on the card.
This program is a part of the awesfx package on the same site. You can
run 'sfxload' by itself to use the ROM SoundFonts, or you can
pass a SBK filename as an argument. You might find synthgm.sbk in your
\Windows\System directory on your DOS partition, or where your Creative Labs
programs are located.
