Sound problem. 'insmod sb' failed.
Thanks very much for your help!
It still doesn't work. I tried different irq and io, when 'insmod sb'.
it always gives me 'device or resource busy...irq or io isn't set
I am using Debian 2.2, kernel 2.2.17.
My laptop is TwinHead Slimnote VX3. The BIOS is PhonixNote 4.0 version
6. I couldn't find anything about PCI or PnP in CMOS setup.
I got some infomation about my sound chip as follow:
when doing 'lspci -vv', I got:
00:06.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs: Unknown device 8938
Subsystem: TWINHEAD INTERNATIONAL Corp: Unknown device 0e70

Status: D0 PME-Enable+ DSel=0 DScale=0 PME+
in /proc/pci, I got:
Bus 0, device 6, function 0:
Multimedia audio controller: Unknown vendor Unknown device (rev 0).
Vendor id=1102. Device id=8938.
Slow devsel. IRQ 5. Master Capable. Latency=96. Min Gnt=12.Max Lat=128.
I/O at 0xfcc0 [0xfcc1].
I/O at 0xfc40 [0xfc41].
And I got these modules in my /lib/modules/2.2.17/misc/, I am not so
sure which one is useful besides soundcore, soundlow, sound and sb.
