GW2k Aztech Sound card -- HOW?

GW2k Aztech Sound card -- HOW?

Post by Gisli Ottarss » Sun, 10 Apr 1994 02:53:36


I just received a soundcard from Gateway and have
it running with {\whisper MS Windows} in my PCI
486-66.  The CD-ROM is a Mitsumi.

How do I configure the kernel?  The card supposedly
has SoundBlaser emulation, but is this SoundBlaster
Pro or SoundBlaster 16?

What is a CODEC?  I don't know enough about this
subject to intelligently answer the 'make config'
questions.  Here is what info I have about my  setup


The MIDI/SB IRQ is 5 and the DMA for SB is on channel 1

I have made one kernel (sorry don't have the values I used, they were
pretty arbitrary anyway).  The reboot reported finding SoundBlaster
2.1 and a Yamaha FM.  I then used the script at the end of
README.linux to make the /dev stuff.  

Here is where things started going wrong.  When I tried to
cat endoftheworld > /dev/dsp I got a message, no room left
on device.  What does that mean.  Diskspace is not a problem.

My CD-ROM which worked fine before playing with the sound doesn't
work anymore.

Any help would be appreciated.

1. Newbie: Aztech 2320 sound card totally locks RH6.0 after sound config probe

I have just installed RH 6.0 on a Gateway P5-150. No problems except the
sound card. It is is an ISA "Aztech Sound Galaxy PRO 16 III-3D PnP FP - 6L"
with an Aztech 2320 OPL chip. The RedHat soundconfig utility (under X11 or
in text mode) detects the Aztech 2320 device and then totally freezes the
system, I can only get out by hard rebooting. The /dev/sndstat file entries
are empty and "dmesg" tells me that the device or resources are busy during
boot detection.

I have tried using the same I/O IRQ and DMA's as DOS using "modprobe sb"
but to no avail. I also had a problem with the card under RH5.2 but that
just wouldn't work rather than take the whole system down.

I would appreciate any info on how to find out whether it's the card or my
system configs.
