Re: Sound SiS7018 rev 2 with 2.2.19 Kernel
Sorry, but it doesn't work.
I just inserted into kernel the full pci support (both), and old style proc.
But also no effect on soundcard.
The curious thing is: the modprobe works fine and inserts the ac97???,
soundcore, and trident without complain.
The files in /dev are all there: snd, sndstat, dsp.
Even if you look at /proc/interrupts the audio at major 14 is there, also in
But even with this (and to confirm that the drivers are loaded with lsmod),
I get a no device message with a /dev/sndstat and I can't play any sound.
Does anyone, or you Mark, have any further suggestions? Does someone tell
me, which drivers als all to be loaded by modprobe, and probably his kernel
