Description Jos Dassen 1999-11-14 23:39:39 UTC
I have an old 8-bit Soundblaster PRO card. It worked fine with RH 6.0.
I upgraded to 6.1 and the soundcard does not work anymore. There is an
entry in /etc/sysconfig/soundcard. I did see that it should be called sound
instead of soundcard and made a link. However this makes no change.
The odd thing is that the sndconfig program does play the test sounds when
activated, but when loading the kernel and modules no driver is loaded.
The /dev/sndstat shows that the card is recognized, but the entry under
driver is blank. (my settings are: 220, irq=5 and dma=1, dmabuf=1).

What does /etc/conf.modules say?

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-11-16 15:45:59 UTC
OK, if you do 'modprobe sound', *exactly* what is in /dev/sndstat?
