Toshiba T4700CT Sound Hardware ?

Toshiba T4700CT Sound Hardware ?

Post by Robert Braeutiga » Fri, 12 Mar 1999 04:00:00


i have a nice little Toshiba T4700CT Notebook running here
under RedHat 5.2. Installation went fine, but I am not able to
get the sound working...

Does anyone have more information about the sound hardware used
in that box ? I tried CS4232 and Windows Sound System and it didnt
work. The only information I got from the BIOS is the Base Address
which is 0x530. When I try to detect that stuff with sndconfig it
produces only a small "click" but I am not able to play a .au-file...

Can anyone help ?

Ah, yes, another question: Is the WD90Cxx-VGA-Controller really
limited to 8-bit graphics ? Window Maker really looks ugly with
255 colors... :(

Thanks a lot in advance,

1. XConfig for Toshiba t4700ct laptop (wd90C24), anyone?

I've installed the slackware distribution on a Toshiba laptop, and I'm
happily running XFree with XF86_VGA16, using the 'generic' chipset.
As my video card supports svga, I would like to install XF86_SVGA, but
I don't know how to write XConfig...

SuperProbe reports a wd90c24 chipset:
First video: Super-VGA
        Chipset: WD/Paradise 90C24
        Memory:  1024 Kbytes
        RAMDAC:  Generic 8-bit pseudo-color DAC
                 (with 6-bit wide lookup tables (or in 6-bit mode))

Did anyone write an XConfig file for XF86_SVGA to use this chipset?
Hope to hear a YES!
