problem with Soundblaster PCI 128 (OEM) & Suse 6.3

Hi, I have a problem with Soundblaster PCI 128 (OEM) & Suse 6.3. I can
compile the kernel and the modules without a problem but if I try to use
the /dev/dsp I can stuff like:

Jul 26 15:05:28 linux modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-slot-0
Jul 26 15:05:28 linux modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-service-0-3
Jul 26 15:05:28 linux modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-slot-1
Jul 26 15:05:28 linux modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-service-1-3
Jul 26 15:05:28 linux modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-slot-2
Jul 26 15:05:28 linux modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-service-2-3
Jul 26 15:05:28 linux modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-slot-3
Jul 26 15:05:28 linux modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-service-3-3

And still no sound... :-( Under NT 4.0 it works fine, but that is not what
I want to use at all.

What do I do wrong? Since my newsfeed is a bit shaky (there is more


Suse 6.3 runs Linux 2.2.13 on a pentium III 500 MHz with 128 MB.

crw-rw-rw-   1 root     audio     14,   3 Dec 15  1999 /dev/dsp

I've used make xconfig in in the sound section I've put:
CONFIG_SOUND=y
CONFIG_SOUND_OSS=y
CONFIG_SOUND_DMAP=y
CONFIG_SOUND_SB=m
CONFIG_SOUND_SOFTOSS=m
CONFIG_SOUND_YM3812=m
CONFIG_SOUND_VMIDI=m

I have compiled the kernel & the modules according the latest Kernel-HOWTO.

Oops. What you really want is the Ensoniq audioPCI 1371 driver, which is
the chip on SB PCI 128 (on a few cards I think it is the 1370 chip?) and
not the sb module, which is for SB 16/PRO/AWE32.

So you should instead compile the es1371 module (or 1370?) and put:

alias char-major-14 es1371

in your /etc/modules.conf (or perhaps /etc/conf.modules).

1. Soundblaster PCI 128 Midi / Suse 6.3.

Hello,

I have some trouble getting my Soundblaster to play some decent MIDI. Normal
sound operation is ok. The /dev/mixer is not present, so mixer software does
not work.

Has anyone managed to get SB128 working with midi?
