I am a Linux newbie and cannot get my Sound Blaster PCI512 to work with my
system. I bought the card because I thought it would be supported by Linux.
My system is a:
ATI All-In-Wonder Video card
Hope that helps

I'm at my wit's end on trying to get this card to work so any
suggestions would be very appreciated!
Here's what I have:
Sound Blaster 16, IRQ 5, 8bit DMA 1, 16bit DMA 5, card using 220h,
MPU-401 UART using 330h.
Here's what I've done:
Using "make config" I've entered all of the above, then proceeded to
"make dep ; make clean ; make zlilo", all of this has no problems. I
also create the devices using the script at the end of Reame.linux in
the sound directory. Rebooting shows the new kernel being loaded but no
information for the sound card is displayed so I check /dev/sndstat and
see that there are drivers listed but no entries for any devices and
trying to play a sound from /dev/audio only gives me a message to the
effect that the address is incorrect. I've tried adding the sound='s
parameters using liloconfig but that doesn't have any affect. I'm
using kernel 1.2.8 and v2.9 of the sound drivers (I think, everything
is from infomagic's August release). In terms of the address
information I've verified it in Windows 95 and it's just the standard
shipped by Gateway2000.
Here's what I think it might be:
1) I've probably overlooked something and need some one to point it
2) My machine/soundcard are using PNP and for this reason Linux may
not be seeing the card.
3) There are problems with the drivers or kernel I'm using that I'm
not aware of.
If you have any suggestions please let me know...and thanks in advance!
