In general, RedHat will only provide support for a piece of hardware
when their techs have had a chance to install the driver, do their own
testing, make an official RPM for it, and release it as part of the
distribution. Until then, it's "unsupported", even if there are stable
drivers available from another source.

I am trying to setup linux (rh5.2) on 2 machines currently.
One of the machines has a Soundblaster PCI128 card on it and the other a
Soundblaster Live card.
I tried sndconf on the machine with the PCI128 it did detect it as the ensoniq
sb pci128 card but when it tried to play the sound sample it failed saying
sox: can't open output file /dev/dsp: operation not supported by device
What's the deal?? I tried chmod 666 /dev/dsp to no avail.
As for the SB live card. I have not tried setting up the sound at all.
I keep seeing posts saying that it is as yet unsupported but there was a
message way back in nov or dec 98 that some one had succeded in using the
ensoniq 1370 for it too.
Any help will be appreciated.
PS: Would appreciate it if anyreplies could be emailed to me at
