Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8787
Sound Blaster PCI 128 (ES1371)
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:12:16 EDT
I can't get any sound with a Sound Blaster PCI 128. This card works with
Debian (which one of my students uses), but not with RedHat 6.0.
1. sndconfig finds the card and declares it a ES1371.
2. The sox process hangs, as does play, and just about every other sound
thing (so sndconfig doesn't complete).
3. es1371: dma timed out?? -- that's what I get in the dmesg log.
4. At boot time it says:
es1371: version v0.13 time 10:41:53 Sep 27 1999
es1371: found adapter at io 0x1480 irq 10
es1371: features: joystick 0x0
es1371: codec vendor revision 0
es1371: codec features none
es1371: stereo enhancement: no 3D stereo enhancement
5. /proc/pci says:
Bus 0, device 15, function 0:
Multimedia audio controller: Ensoniq ES1371 (rev 7).
Slow devsel. IRQ 10. Master Capable. Latency=96. Min Gnt=12.Max
I/O at 0x1480 [0x1481].
6. And, of course, Windoze likes it so I know the card is OK.
I'm hoping you guys can help -- it's the first time I've asked RedHat for
support -- since I'm getting tired of buying sound cards (tried a PCI 512
Try a 2.2.15preX kernel; the driver is fixed there.
The PCI512 should work with the em10k1 driver available
from Creative Labs.

The PCI 128 you have should work with 2.2.15preX; that's where
the es1371 driver was fixed to work with the newer chipsets.
