AMR modem & CS4280 sound chib

AMR modem & CS4280 sound chib

Post by Hossam Hossn » Thu, 25 Jan 2001 10:02:40



hi all
this is about AMR modems again
well I have i810 MB with i810 video card & crystal CS4280 sound chib
built-in.
my modem is volcano AMR modem (ICH82801AA chib on it).
so easily I managed to configure the video card with support from Intel
website. I had troubles configuring the sound chib even after using
ALSA drivers which I discovered that their drivers configure the chibs
built on cards (not built in the MB) like they got a module called "snd-
card-cs461x" but the module I should use is "snd-cs461x" which is
already provided in my linux distribution and loaded successfully BUT
with no sound in the end !!!
anyway I'm working on it and hope that I manage someday to make it !
but the main problem is about the AMR modem which I know it's a
winmodem but can be supported in linux.
I know that PCtel AMR modem has a driver for linux...so since it does
then AMR is generally supported...am I right?
but this volcano really sucks...the company does not have even a
website !!!
so anyone here having my configurations managed to configure it
successfully???
TIA
and thanx 4 listening
bye

I'm pretty sure that snd-card-cs461x is correct regardless of weather your
sound card is built into the motherboard or not.

I'm afraid that it's not !
when I do "modprobe snd-card-cs461x" it gives me "device busy or not
found" error !
also, when I do "cat /proc/modules" or "lsmod" it lists all the sound
modules loaded succefully but "not used" !!!
I think I should use "amixer" to unmute the sound.
anyway..any other ideas??

Well them maybe something else is wrong but you really do want to load
snd-card-something.  Just snd-something won't ever initialize the card.
FWIW here's the appropriate part of my modules.conf (might be conf.modules
on your system):

that's another problem...when I do "modprobe snd-card-*" nothing really
loaded...but when I do "modprobe snd-*" I find a a lot of modules
loaded but whith no use !!!
here's a part of my modules.conf:
# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-cs461x <---- not snd-card-cs461x which is not
working !!!
# OSS/Free portion
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss

Well it could be that the cs461x driver doesn't support your particular
sound chip or that it needs you to specify certain parameters (io port, dmas
etc).  A look at the alsa mailing list archives should tell you if your
wasting your time.  When you try to load snd-card-cs461x are any errors
logged (use 'dmesg' to check)?  Have you tried compiling alsa with the
"--with-debug=full" option?  At the very least with debugging on you should
be able to determine if the driver either isn't finding a supported sound
device at all or is finding it but having trouble using it.

It will never in a million years work without snd-card-something on that
line.

AMR modem & CS4280 sound chib

Post by Hossam Hossn » Wed, 31 Jan 2001 08:28:59


I registered with ALSA e-mailing list before I post my question here
I also posted my question there but with no reply !!
I dont know whether I didnt make my question clear or my question was
too hard !
anyway, I tried to recompile ALSA with debug mode on (as it is said in
it's installation) but nothing wrong with that
the problem is when I try to modprobe snd-card-461x even with modified
parameters...no use really.
my question now is: how can I make use of snd-461x with or without ALSA?
and my 2nd question is: how can I remove ALSA permenantly from my linux
box??
thanx again

The question is incomprehensible.

Try again, giving command lines, error logs, and whatever else is
relevant.

1. Are linux drivers for i810e AMR modems and AC97 sound capabilities in the works?

I'd like to work with low-cost i810e motherboards for some linux terminals I
have to build. I do see mention of i810 support from OSS (is i810e any
different?), and intel has the accelerated X-server
http://support.intel.com/support/graphics/intel810/linuxsoftware.htm,
but what about the AMR modem?

I was hoping that since this was now such a common piece of hardware,
someone had found a way to make that particular 'winmodem' a 'linmodem'.

Its important for my project because I have to factor the cost and expansion
slot of a modem in or out, based on the availability of linux 810 drivers.

Thanks for any info.
