Cannot detect Quad X-Treme sound card


I got a Quad X-Treme 256 sound card from Media forte. It is not detected during install and I get the "Could not open /dev/dsp..." message. I am using the Lycoris distro with 2.4.18 kernel. At some point I tried it out with Suse 7.1 and there the sound card worked. Does anyone know what module I should use? Mediaforte themselves proclaims that the card does not work under Linux.

Its a matter of findout out what the card's chipset is and then figuring out the module for that. Media Forte is probably one of a dozen brand names re-distributing basically the same card.

lspci -v

Then take the specific audio controller info and forcefeed that into www.google.com/linux to figure out the module, and or post it here and we can figure it out.

Cheers,

I did not manage to use cut and paste in any way to get the result in here, but I think one of the important keywords is fm801.

It seems that the fm801 is only included in the alsa modules, and is not part of the stock kernel. You'll want to try one of the alsa how-tos, an up to date one can probably be found at the project site.

Luck,

The fm801 only seems to work under the alsa drivers, which can be a pain to get working. You can find some pretty good how-tos, but some of them are quite out of date, so its probably best to start from the project page.

Cheers,
