I have ensoniq soundscape sound card. When I run sndconfig
and set the soundcard to SoundBlaster Pro (I believe it is
compatible to that), the sndconfig reports error playing
the example sound clip. If I run audio cd from CD player (I
have Toshiba DVD drive) using cdp or any audio programs, I
shows as playing but can't hear any sound. Just a note that
it does run perfectly in Windows 95. Shoudl I copy the I/O
port addresses from WIndows settings in Linux. Another
thing is that I can't change those I/O port and DMA
settings beyond the three/four choices listed in the
sndconfig menu window.

Actually, you should probably try to use the soundscape
driver (or the ad1848 driver if you've got a SoundScape
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-01-11 21:07:59 EST
In that case, it's not supported.
However, if you grab the latest sndconfig RPMs (0.29)
at ftp://ftp.redhat.com/sound/sndconfig, and the latest
kernel in the errata, it's got a chance of working (there is a soundscape option.) As to the DVD card, I have no idea.

I also have a problem with sndconfig 5.1 on a sound blaster compatible
pnp card. Pnpdump ID's it as a YMH0020, and a OPL3-SAX-Sound board.
(Yamaha 719 3d pnp). Even if I use isapnp to put it at 220/5/1, I get
an error message about resetting the dsp on the board from sndconfig.

(Incidently, the 5.1 sndconfig also kills my pnp eithenet card).

The real problem? There's no documentation I can find anywhere that
tells me what I need to do to configure a sound card on my own. I have
no idea what to put into /etc/modules.conf.

(Still, I'll try that new sndconfig, and see what happens. Gad, I hate
when a commercial package requires an out-of-date version of linux.)
