Description bourdeau 2000-01-29 00:22:16 UTC
I am unable to configure my sound card under RH Linux 6.1 due to the fact that sndconfig will not obey the --noprobe and --noautoconf (may have latter switch mislabeled here, but I got it right when I used sndconfig) switches. First sndconfig says that the probe and autoconf have been disabled, but then it goes ahead and probes. This would not be a problem if the probe worked right, but it does not. It SAYS it found an AUREAL Vortex card, but I have a Turtle Beach Montego card. Since it says the AUREAL card is not supported, it bails out and I'm no where. I'm sure I could get around this if I understood the output of isapnp and how to use it, but I don't. PC Speaker works fine. Platform: Dell XPS R450 running Intel Pentium II.

Some addition info. I did discover that my Turtle Beach Montego II card may indeed be fairly detected as an Aureal card. However, it supports SBPro emulation, and I'd be perfectly happy if I could only use the SBPro capabilities. I attempted to manually load the sb and sound modules directly with modprobe using all the same parameter settings as I use in Windows.

The --noprobe --noautoconfig problem with PCI cards has been fixed in the sndconfig currently in Raw Hide, and yes, the Turtle Beach Montego is a Vortex based card. The problem with the SBPro emulation is that it's done by the Windows drivers, not in hardware. You *may* be able to get it to work by loading the drivers in DOS/Windows and then warm booting into linux using loadlin or something similar, but there's no guarantee that that will work. Your best bet is to wait for drivers to become available; if you're willing to use closed source drivers, there are ones available from http://linux.aureal.com/.

I downloaded the Aureal drivers mentioned above, compiled them and installed them. I am now able to utilize my TBS Montego II card successfully. Thanks.
