Description Nick Boehling 2000-01-12 01:18:39 EST
I have a SoundBlaster PCI 128 sound card installed and sndconfig detects it
as a Ensoniq ES 1371 Audio PCI-97.  When testing it freezes the system up.
My motherboard is a Asus BM6 and I have tried selecting the option for PNP
OS as yes and no in the bios.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-01-13 10:34:59 EST
Does it hang the system completely, or just hang

The card designation is correct; all of the Soundblaster PCI<x>
cards (except for the 512) are based off of the es1370 or es1371
Comment 2 Nick Boehling 2000-01-18 01:49:59 EST
sndconfig is the only part that stops after I say OK to test the sound card.  I
can type  but the only way to exit is ctrl-c.  It displays this information:

es1371: unloading
es1371: version v.013 time 10:31:53 Sep 27 1999
es1371: found adapter at io 0xe800 irq 15
es1371: features joystick 0x0
es1371: codec vendor revision 0
es1371: codec features none
es1371: stereo enhancement: no         3D stereo enhancement

Then nothing else, no sound or anything so have to press ctrl-c to exit the

Now when I boot klogd uses all of the cpu usage and has to be killed.

OK, looks like you have one of the newer chips. It's
currently supported in the 2.2.15pre2 or greater kernel;
you can get the patch from
