Sound : no sound with Ensoniq pc1371 and Mandrake 6.1

Post by david duboi » Mon, 27 Mar 2000 04:00:00



Hello,

Impossible for me to have sound with Ensoniq 1371 and the Mandrake 6.1.

When I read dmesg I have :
es1371: version v0.13 time 18:19:49 Sep 15 1999
es1371: found adapter at io 0xb800 irq 10
es1371: features: joystick 0x200
es1371: codec vendor  revision 0
es1371: codec features none
es1371: stereo enhancement: no 3D stereo enhancement
es1371: dma timed out??      
so I think all is correct.

When I run sndconfig there is no error message but I heard nothing!!!!!

One thing important : I use my hifi system so what I need to do to be
sure that there is a really problem with my configuration and not with
my hifi system? Can I play a sound file and be sure that it will be play
only in my PC?

This is what I have in /etc/conf.modules :
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
pre-install pcmcia_core /etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia start
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-card-ens1371
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0
# OSS/Free portion - card #1
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm1-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm1-oss
# OSS/Free portion - card #2
alias sound-service-1-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-1-3 snd-pcm1-oss
alias sound-service-1-12 snd-pcm1-oss
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
pre-install pcmcia_core /etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia start
alias sound es1371                                          
alias char-major-14 es1371
options es1371 joystick=0x200  

When I do cat /dev/sndstat :
"cat: /dev/sndstat: Aucun priphrique de ce type"
The traduction is : No such peripheral of this type.
In the /usr/src/linux-2.2.13/Documentation/sound/README.OSS I have this
explanation :

"In general the easiest way to diagnose problems is to do "cat
/dev/sndstat".

If you get an error message, there are some problems with the driver
setup:

        - "No such file or directory" tells that the device files for
        the sound driver are missing. Use the script at the end of
        linux/drivers/sound/Readme.linux to create them.

        - "No such device" tells that the sound driver is not in the
kernel.
        You have to reconfigure and recompile the kernel to have the
sound
        driver. Compiling the driver doesn't help alone. You have to
boot
        with the newly compiled one before the driver becomes active.
        The Linux-HOWTO should help in this step.
"

but I can't find the file Readme.linux.

So, can somebody tell me where is exactly the problem?

Sound : no sound with Ensoniq pc1371 and Mandrake 6.1

HELLO:As strange as this may sound Ive ran the esoniq 1371 with
mandrake6.1When you use soundconfig if it says it found the card even if
you dont hear the sample sound(I didnt) try this.First logout and reset
your xserver then log back in.You sometimes have to after runing sndconfig
to make the card take.If you have a mixer icon on the panel at the bottom
of the screen pull it up and make sure the controls are turned up.I had to
do this to make mine heard.Also go to the control panel and check the box
it gives for sounds.See if you can hear the normal system sounds.It gives
a test button.Make sure tho that you select from both sides of the
options.What I mean by this is pick an option from the left such as
startup message and then pick from the right a sound for it such as the
welecome sound and then hit test.If all this fails do an ismod and see
what turns up.good luck wayne!
