Cyrstal CS4280 on-board PCI sound chip

Post by jmsalv » Wed, 24 Nov 1999 04:00:00

I have an HP Vectra VEi8 PC, with an on-board 16-bit PCI audio CS4280

Has anyone gotten one of these audio chips to work with linux??

I tried pnpdump, but that does not give me anything except "Trying port
xxx..." over and over and a "No boards found" at the end.

Anyway, correct me if I am wrong, pnpdump is for ISA only, and my sound
chip is PCI, and I do not have any ISA boards on my PC. Hence, the
message "trying port xxxx ... No boards found."

So pnpdump is of no use to me.

The only thing I can see is from /proc/pci:

Bus 0, device 4, function 0:
Multimedia audio controller:Cirrus Logic Unknown device (rev 1).
  Vendor id=1013. Device id=6003.
  Medium devsel. IRQ 9. Master Capable. Latency=64. Min Gnt=4.Max
  Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xe81010000 [0xe81010000].
  Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xe80000000 [0xe80000000].

1. On-board sound chip?

I've got an on-board sound chip that is supposed to be 100% Sound Blaster
compatible (and under DOS it appears to be). Nonetheless, I can't get it to
work under LINUX even when I compile sound as a module instead of compiling
it directly into the kernel. I'm running SuSE 6.1 with kernel 2.2.6. If
anyone knows some tricks to get this to work with an on-board chip, please
let me know.
