I'm having a similar problem, exact same config as Olivier
mentioned (sb io=0x220, irq=5, synth io=0x330). Can't find
any place to indicate what the base io addr is for this sound
card (presumably this is only necessary in legacy mode? oddly,
there is a way to spec the synth's io port.) Kernel is 2.4.6
(have also tried with earlier kernels from stable and testing).
CPU is duron 800 and VIA chip is shown in lspci as a VT82C686
(note: no A or B suffix). Just tried your (Pat's) suggestion:
dude:~# modprobe soundcore [success]
dude:~# modprobe ac97_codec [success]
dude:~# modprobe via82cxxx_audio
/lib/modules/2.4.6/kernel/drivers/sound/via82cxxx_audio.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
/lib/modules/2.4.6/kernel/drivers/sound/via82cxxx_audio.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.6/kernel/drivers/sound/via82cxxx_audio.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.6/kernel/drivers/sound/via82cxxx_audio.o: insmod via82cxxx_audio failed
I have been able to load sb.o but this is not useful as apps
complain about only having 8-bit audio :(.
Thanks for any assistance or suggestions.
