I have recently bought a Sound Blaster 16 PCI for my system, and I'm trying
to get it to work in Linux.
I am running Red Hat 7.0 with a 2.4.2 kernel (Sound support is compiled as a
module). I'm have a dual boot with Windows NT.
Although my sound card is a Sound Blaster 16 PCI, sndconfig says that it is
an Ensoniq 5880, so they are probably basically the same. But then it says
it is not supported! I think this is kind of odd, because it is a Sound
Blaster 16, and the only difference is the PCI instead of the ISA.
I don't really know what to do to make it work. So if anyone has any
suggestions...they would be appreciated.
I can rebuild the kernel if required, but I would rather just recompile
modules because the kernel takes forever to do.
