Sound card problem: Ensoniq ES1371 audio PCI-97 chip set

Sound card problem: Ensoniq ES1371 audio PCI-97 chip set

Post by Elaine Wenderhol » Fri, 24 Mar 2000 04:00:00



I cannot get my Sound card to work!  I'm running SuSE Linux 6.3.
I just recently purchased a Dell Dimension.  I have:

   3com c3509B ISA ethernet card.
   Soundblaster 64V PCI Sound Card
   32 MB NVidia tnt2 M64 graphics card (it isn't plug and play)

This is what I did:

(0)  Checkted that the board is seated properly and that the wire from
the board to the
       CD-ROM is attached.
(1)   lspci -vvt to get the chip set
(2)   rm conf.modules
(3)   edited /etc/modules.conf:

       commented out:

       # alias char-major-14 off
       # alias sound off
       # alias midi off

       uncommented lines under es1371

(4)  modprobe *

(5)  enables system sounds in KDE | Settings | Sound | System Sounds

(6)  rebooted

(7)  no sound! even though the correct module is installed.

YOUR HELP IS GREATLY APPRECITED!!!!
Please email your answer to
    wen...@cs.oswego.edu

thanks very much !!!!- Elaine

I think you need to install OSS from your CDROM and add a few lines related to OSS
in etc/modules.conf.  And remember to increase sound volume in the OSS since the
default has no sound out. If you would  like to know changes I made in
modules.conf, please let me know.  However, I have absolutely no idea what exactly
each line is supposed to do.  Just going thru trial-and-error to make it work.

Hmmmmmm, I have a Gateway and just did
insmod /x/x/x/es1371.o  (where the x's are directories to the module
files.. I'm not in Linux at the moment.)

and bingo!

do lsmod and see what it gives for sound drivers.
On my system when I did insmod es1371.0 it loaded
as the sound core driver and everything started working.

Modprobe what in particular?

Why? The whole point of using modprobe and modules is so that you

No it isn't, surely. And you haven't convinced me of it at any rate!

Sound card problem: Ensoniq ES1371 audio PCI-97 chip set

I have the same card and have not been able to get it to work in Linux yet for
over 6 months despite many attempts using various techniques (including ALSA).   I
have the same problem: everything loads ok, but no sound at all .  There was a
thread in October about this card  (specifically rev 6) regarding DMA timeouts
which I followed, but never got a solution and eventually the thread died.   It
was reported that later revisions of the chip did not work with the ES1371 driver
as written for early incarnations.  I do not know if there has been a fix, but I
have updated drivers continuosly with no results.

If you are still having problems, I wonder if you see any resources listed for the
card under /proc/dma -- my SBAWE64 on another computer reports to be using DMA 5
(I think), but the ES1371 does not report any DMA.   Perhaps this is part of the
problem.

If it now works for you, please let me know what you did in great detail.

Sound card problem: Ensoniq ES1371 audio PCI-97 chip set

Post by eye » Thu, 06 Apr 2000 04:00:00


I've had some of the same problems with my card and to both of you, i can
suggest one possible Solution. Before i do, tho, I don't have the SAME card
as you, I have a SB PCI 128, but it still uses the 1371 driver, and since
you mentioned the newer es1371 chip, it sounded Familiar. my advice is this:

Try the 2.3.99-pre3 kernel. I toiled and toiled over my card in 2.2, errors
after errors, nothing worked right. Sound thought it was playing, but i
got no output. When  played an mp3, i had no output, and mpg123 -v reported
a freeze at frame 24 (less than 1 second into playing the song). ALSA also
gave me many errors.

When i upgraded to the 2.3.99-pre3 kernel, it worked. Not a single problem
with it. So, Try that kernel.

1. No sound from Ensoniq es1371 sound card

Having trouble configuring an Ensoniq es1371 on RH 6.0 linux-2.2.5-15?
I have recompiled my kernel several times in an attempt to get the card
working with my system.  It appears that the card loads regardless of
whether I link it directly to the kernel or compile it as a module.
IRQ=11 and io=0x1080.  These are the same parameters used by win98 which
I have dual booted on my system.  The card works fine under win98, and I
hear that it will work just as well with Linux but I'm not there yet.
I've used sndconfig which sees the card but I get no audible sound when
it tests it.  I've tried selecting es1370 as well as some of the
soundblaster modules just for kicks and that action either crashes the
sndconfig program or simply has no effect.  I've also tried using
"modprobe -k es1371" to no avail.  The system takes the command just
fine but I still get nothing when I run an audio cd.  /etc/conf.modules
seems to be set up appropriately for es1371.  I've checked
/var/logs/messages and get indications that all is ok regarding loading
sound there.  Speakers are turned on and plugged in just as they are for
win98.  One thing that troubles me is although I'm not seeing much in
the way of errors being reported, when I try and cat /dev/sndstat I get
"no such device" or something like that.  I also don't seem to have the
lspci command as root. Nothing in whereis and didn't show up using find.

I've got a PIII 500 and a Toshiba 6x DVD drive.  Question: if the card
seems to load and the cdrom program appears to work but I get no sound
either from it or from the sound files used by the sndconfig command,
could it be that the problem lies elsewhere?  Are there device drivers
for either my speakers or the DVD/cdrom drive that are perhaps a little
out of the ordinary but required especially for my ensoniq 1371 card?
I've read some things that seem to suggest that a special cdrom driver
is needed that will interface with SoundBlaster cards.  If it's not used
the card won't play.  I don't know if that case applies here or not.  I
understand that Ensoniq somehow or another is closely related to
SoundBlaster.  It gives me the idea that although my cdrom is working it
may not be producing output the sound card can use.  Maybe there's an
issue like that with my speakers too???  I don't know and neither does
RH support.  Help please if you know.  I'll post the solution when I get
one.

Thanks,
pjg
