I have sent this message to the supposed author of the PLIP code
(I sent it over 2 weeks ago). I have posted this on the newsgroup
before and I never had a response on this. B-( So I am trying
There HAS to be someone out there that has a soundcard AND runs PLIP!!
Here is my problem:
I have a SoundBlaster PRO sound card, which (I beleive) is
causing PLIP to fail, it is currently configured for IRQ _5_.
PLIP tells me at system boot up that it is using IRQ 7,
so I would not expect there to be any IRQ conflict.
After MUCH experimenting, I have narrowed down the problem to my
sound card - basically if the sound card is IN, PLIP fails,
(PINGs dont work at all, in fact the other computer I connect to locks up).
if the sound card is taken OUT, PLIP works fine.
I tried alternate IRQ's for the Sound card and that did not help.
My guess is that PLIP will fail with any card that uses IRQ 5
(ie a bus mouse). I suspect the auto IRQ detect code is buggy.
If you know of a patch to fix this, I'd really want to know about it!
Thanks in advance.
Please email any replies.
