: I recently upgraded to the 2.2.1 kernel and ran into some problems. I have a
: real SB Vibra16 PnP, and mine does the same exact thing. It should be IRQ 5,
: with all the other stuff set to defaults. I don't think any of my other
: cards could have taken that IRQ. My modem is an USR 56k with the jumpers set
: to Com 4 If I remember correctly. It works fine though. Other than that
: there's just my video and scanner cards. Linux has always ignored the SCSI
: scanner card before because I didn't bother to set it up. The sndconfig
: program that comes with Redhat detects my card fine, but it can't "modprobe
: -a sound". If I "insmod sb" or "modprobe -a \*" I get an error message like
: "sb.o: init_module: Device or Resource busy.". The soundcore.o and sound.o
: modules load just fine. I'm not sure how to fix this, but ANY solutions are
One thing you might try is to download the sound system from www.opensound.com
They seem to have their act together and rather than spending the many hours
it takes to get the normal sound system running, trying their stuff out and
then paying the rather cheap licence fee is a good idea.
After downloading the stuff, it took me all of 5 minutes to get sound
running. If your time is worth anything, its an option to explore, although
it certainly isn't quite as satisfying as getting isapnp, and the ordinary
linux sound system to work.
