I am running Red Hat 6.0 and trying to get my ESS SOLO 1 PCI Sound card
to run. Setup tells me there are no PnP devices found. When I choose any
one of the ESS modules I get a "device busy error". I have been reading
the "Alsa-sound-5.html" MINI-HOWTO. There is a line in there that says I
need to run "modprobe snd-audiodrive1688".... I find no evidence of this
module anywhere! I hav looked under /lib/modules/2.2.5-15/misc and I see
a few es*.o files, but nothing that looks like the mod I am looking for.
I have played with the IO addresses and the IRQ's etc... The chipset is
part of the ASUS mobo i am using. I would go for another sound card, but
I see no way to disable this chipset in the BIOS and I don't want to try
to make another card work with the ESS taking up resources.
Am I looking for something that does not exist? Am I barking uo the
wrong tree?? Everything else is running great! The only thing I need to
get working is the sound. I even have my ADSL connection working, thanks
to comp.os.linux.networking and DHCPCD. This sound thing has me baffled
Thanks in advance.
