Creative PC DVD CDROM won't talke to pci 128

Post by John Arms » Tue, 18 Jul 2000 04:00:00

I have redhat 2.0.35 which allows my Creative DVD to talk to my
soundblaster pci 128 ('70 chip).  Works great with the help from a
driver purchased from 4Front Technologies.  Attempts to upgrade to
2.0.36 and finally redhat 6.1 results in RealPlay being able to play
mp3 files but no luck with the CDROM.  Can someone point me to the
posts which most probably have been by those with the same problem?




1. HELP! SB 128 PCI won't work!

I've tried searching Deja News, using the ALSA drivers, etc. The best I
can do is get the modules to load. If I play something, no sound comes
out. :-(

Using Linux 2.2.12's es1370 I get "device busy", and using es1371, apps
freeze when playing sounds. I then tried ALSA's driver; Apps (like xmms)
seem to be playing, but nothing comes out (I didn't forget to unmute).
I've tried different settings in /etc/conf.modules, but nothing helps.
My current settings give me an error opening /dev/audio. :-(

Here's my /etc/conf.modules:

alias eth0 3c59x
alias sound snd-card-ens1371

And lsmod's output:

soundcore               2372   2  [snd]

What am I missing? Should I enter additional options in

BTW, the sound card is in the lowest PCI slot. And the BIOS has it set
for IRQ 11.

Any suggestions would be *really* appreciated. :-)
