Soundblaster AWE32 fails autodetection
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:13:09 EDT
In sndconfig it properly identifies the card and it's resources, however
when it writes the /etc/isapnp.conf file it does not properly parse it and
you get an error stating something along CTL4400/ .... Line 342 ... Don't
know what to do with this? Fatal Error
I appologize I can not be more precise as I do not have my computer here
right now. As for getting the sound card to work I can manually enter the
information with sndconfig and then go through and manually edit
the /etc/pnpisa.conf file to get almost everything working, I still don't
have my midi working. But I do now have sound.
This problem did not exist in 5.2, 5.1 or 6.0 to my knowlege.
Maybe this could be an error with conflicts caused by the on board IDE?
Also it seems to be some sort of parsing error in the /etc/pnpisa.conf
file. Hope this helps.
Does this still happen with the sndconfig in 6.2?
Do you have any other PnP cards?
I have a DXR2 Card and a USR 56K modem (which should not be running in PNP
mode, but it can)
The problem still exists in 6.2.
Upon autodetection the isapnp.conf file is corrupted. Upone manually entering
the resources the card will work, but sndconfig will fail when attempting to
test the midi portion. The error returned is that the awe.o file failed to load
and that /dev/sequencer is not configured correctly.
Can this be a device conflict? It works in other OS's.
A side note, this bug sounds a LOT like bugs: 337 and 953.
But with 6.1 an 6.2
this should be solved with the move to using the kernel's ISAPnP code in 7.1/7.2.
