SoundBlaster AWE64 ISAPNP on etch
Cannot get sound up and running on etch.
I know there are a million+ posts on the new regarding sound on linux. I
have tried to do my homework by searching the debian list archives,
googling, and I have also read the following HOWTO's:
linux sound HOWTO
AWE 32/64 HOWTO
I've learned a lot, but am having trouble piecing together what I've learned
and applying it to this particular distro, and I need a bit of direction.
Here's my situation:
AWE64 ISAPNP card (works fine on Windows)
Just installed etch. The card is 'detected' on boot, but not 'configured'.
I really do not know what sound support is automatically installed on
debian. I figure I need to load the appropriate driver modules, but I am
not exactly sure which drivers/modules to load.
I have tried each of the following:
# modprobe sb
# modprobe snd-sbawe
Either one seems to configure my card:
'dmesg' results indicate that the card is found and assigned IRQ, DMA and
But when I try to play any sort of sound (audio CD, raw PCM file, etc.) I
just get static from the speakers.
I have also tried:
# modprobe sound
# modprobe sound-core
but cannot determine what effect, if any, these have.
