Hello debian-users !
I have a problem using a es1371 sound card (it's really a SB128 PCI).
In a nutshell: the system can't talk to the card...
I am using woody and a kernel 2.2.17
Here's what I did:
recompiling the kernel (sound support: module , es1371: module )
es1371.o and soundcore.o are in /lib/modules/2.2.17/misc, OK
I see something flashing about a char-major-14 but It's too fast.
adding a "alias char-major-14 es1371" to the /etc/modutils/aliases
seems to have fixed it. At least I don't get that error anymore.
(I got this in reading Documentation/sound/Introduction in the kernel source tree.)
the es1371 driver gets loaded, no complaint
"es1371: es1371 card found rev8, io=0xe000 , IRQ=11 " and so on.
the card is in /proc/pci
es1371 0 unused
soundcore 4 [es1371]
It seems fine until now.(at least to me)
- there's nothing in /dev/sndstat (the file "exists" but cat /dev/sndstat say no such device)
- there's no /proc/sound file
- if I try to use the sound card the whole system freezes.( I experience it mostly with
I'd REALLY appreciate someone who uses an es1371 to tell me exactly what I'm
missing (option something or other).
I've already RTFMed /usr/src/linux/Documentation/sound/es1371 , but there's
scarcely any info in there.
PS: i've this sndconfig lurking around, is it useful ?
