Description rcdennis 1999-04-08 20:13:58 EDT
I just registered my version of Linux 5.2 and have a
problem installing my ess1869 sound card.  It works in
windows NT 40. When running sndconfig it does identify the
ess1869 but setting any of the parms does no good in
getting the sound to work.

I have tried using the same parms the NT uses (220, dma -1,
irq-7, 320).  Note the last parm (320) cannot be changed
when running sndconfig (only 300 & 330 are available).  My
email address is rcdennis@rc.net.

Thanks for the help.

(you may also have to edit your /etc/isapnp.conf)

it work?

If you do pnpdump --dumpregs, you can see what the
hardware is currently configured to (unfortunately, it
can get lost in the middle of all the output). The
/etc/isapnp.conf  & /etc/conf.modules show the settings that
are being used to attempt to configure the driver.
