Description yarbrough 1999-01-10 06:39:05 UTC
SB16 (not PnP) is no longer auto detected by sndconfig.
Pretty sure it worked with RH 5.1.  Even manually setting
IRQ, DMA & I/O info doesn't work. Fails sample sound.

Comment 1 yarbrough 1999-01-10 20:36:59 UTC
Got it working by adding the following two lines to /etc/conf.modules

alias sound sb
options -k sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1,5

Why didn't this get added during setup?

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-01-11 15:28:59 UTC
if you got the error message
'An error occured opening /dev/audio', you hit a bug in
sndconfig. It's been fixed since RH5.2 was released.

You also need to add:
alias midi opl3
options -k opl3 io=0x388
