I recently got a SB 16 PCI, and I was trying to get it configured to work
properly with GNOME/E, but I've run into a few problems. The card was
auto-detected, and reported no problems in configuration with sndconfig
under RH 6.1, but several audio files give it problems, and none of the
enlightenment or gnome sound events seem to work at all.
I've tested the device files with a couple of test files, with cat
crash.au > /dev/dsp and cat crash.au > /dev/audio, and some of them work
while others are just garbled.
lsmod shows that the es1371 module is loaded, but /dev/sndstat doesn't
have any info, suggesting that the card's not set right. After trying to
play /usr/share/sound/startup1.au (which got garbled), an error showed up
in dmesg's output which had something about DMA not being configured
properly...has anyoen else expoerienced similar problems with this card,
and anyone have pointers as to how to fix it? After I ran into trouble, I
followed the steps in the Sound-HOWTO to the letter, but the device still
didn't seem to be installed correctly. dmesg seems to show that the sound
card gets initialised OK, though...I think. I'm not on the machine at the
moment, or I'd show you the exact output.
Any ideas anyone? Maybe a different driver? Or how would I know what
IRQ/IO/DMA to set on the card? I'd see what the settings were under
windows, but that's not an option (no windows).
Funny thing is, sound works grand with Civ:CTP :) Any ideas/pointers?
Thanks a lot,
