sndconfig locks up while trying to detect sound card
Last modified: 2008-03-06 14:57:02 EST
It seems that whan I run sndconfig it locks up while trying
to detect my sound card. I have an SB AWE64.
I can use the --noprobe and it then skips the sound
detection, but it still leaves teh isapnp.conf empty.
I can then use pnpdump to create my own isapnp.conf file.
However my AWE device is still not being found by the
if run with --noprobe, sndconfig won't look for isapnp cards,
so it *can't* write an isapnp.conf file. Does running pnpdump
from the command line lock up?

Considering that sndconfig just runs pnpdump, that's odd that
one would lock up and the other wouldn't. In any case, what's
probably the problem with the AWE synth you're having is that
you need to edit your /etc/isapnp.conf. Find the line that says
(IO 0 (BASE 0x620))
and change it to
(IO 0 (BASE 0x620)) (IO 1 (BASE 0x0A20)) (IO 2 (BASE 0x0E20))
Then you can rerun 'isapnp /etc/isapnp.conf', and then
'modprobe awe_wave'. Does that work?

the opl3 device can be loaded; it's the FM synth. If you're
using the AWE synth, it isn't really necessary.
