Happy new year!!! ++ fake-Typhoon radio card
Hello there, everybody...
At first, let me take the chance to wish all of you a perfect, calm, happy
and successfull 2001, may everything you are about to do turn out just
perfectly. :) And, thanks for all of you for your help, for hints, tips
and support which helped me a lot quite often last year... Thanks guys,
you are great! :))
Okay, so for the first question in the new year... I am messing around
trying to get a radio tuner card to run on one of our customers computers
which now shall be made a Debian machine (seems the guy is pretty angry
with Ruindow$98 :))) )... However, this card is an ISA 8-bit device
obtained from German 'Pearl' distributor, and, on the tiny 'manual' of the
card, it is listed as 'Typhoon Sound System'. The 'radio-typhoon' driver
of potato's out-of-the-box kernel doesn't work, and modinfo -p shows that
the io parameters which are allowed for this module don't fit the possible
io jumper configurations listed in the manual. 'radio-gemtek' is the only
module for those devices which has the options for io as given by the
hardware manufacturer but it doesn't work either... Those io ports are
0x20c , 0x30c, 0x24c and 0x34c.
(a) Does anyone of you know this device and is able to give me some more
in-depth-information? The manual is not very helpful, as always...
(b) Has anyone got this device to work with Linux? If yes, can you help me
improving my configuration? :)
So, that's all for now... Thanks for reading, bye!
Regards, have a nice evening...
