Re: how do i get sound working?
Another thing that may help is to install the pciutils package (if you
haven't already), and run the lspci command. That should give additional
info on what Linux is recognizing as far as your sound card is
concerned, as well as all your other PCI devices.
I have an older version of the PCI64 card, and get this from 'lspci -v'
00:0a.0 Multimedia audio controller: Ensoniq ES1370 [AudioPCI]
Subsystem: Unknown device 4942:4c4c
Flags: bus master, slow devsel, latency 64, IRQ 9
I/O ports at 6800
As mentioned in the other post, PCI cards don't require you to specify
I/O, IRQ etc. In the kernel configuration, you usually just need to
enable sound support in general, and then select the correct driver for
your card. Mine is ES1370, although yours is probably ES1371.
I compiled my sound support directly into the kernel. The other option
is to compile it as modules. As an example, here is the sound portion of
my kernel config (kernel version 2.2.16):
# CONFIG_SOUND_CMPCI is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_ES1370_JOYPORT_BOOT is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_ES1371 is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_MAESTRO is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_ESSSOLO1 is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_ICH is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_SONICVIBES is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_TRIDENT is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_MSNDCLAS is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_MSNDPIN is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_OSS is not set
