Re: ALSA on Compaq Armada 7400

For years, I have been trying to get sound working on Compaq Armadas:
73xx, 78xx, 7400, & 7800. Thanks to some help I got here months ago, I
got it going without ALSA; I guess that's OSS. I've tried to start
using ALSA and now I've gotten sound broken again. This is on a 7400
running Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.8. I think it is a problem of just not
knowing how to configure ALSA. Before ALSA, "sb irq=5 io=0x220 dma=1"
in /etc/modules gave me working sound. With ALSA,
snd-es18xx irq=5 io=0x220 dma=1
The easiest way I've gotten this to work on a 7400 was to install Mepis
and then run "alsaconfig". Zip, bam, boom, it worked!
snd-sb16 irq=5 io=0x220 dma=1
result in "failure to detect" at boot.
If someone has ALSA working on a similair Armada, please tell me how
you have it configured.
