Mandrake 10.0 and CM8738 sound card


Hi,
I'm using Mandrake 10.0
lspci | grep audio
02:02.0 Multimedia audio controller: C-Media Electronics Inc CM8738 (rev 10)

I'm using the kernel module
snd-cmipci

But I dont know what options to give him.
Dont know what is the syntax in module.conf (or modprobe.conf)

Code:
grep snd-cmipci /etc/*
/etc/modprobe.conf:#options snd-cmipci max=8 index=min=1
/etc/modprobe.conf:install snd-cmipci /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install snd-cmipci && { /sbin/modprobe snd-pcm-oss; /bin/true; }
/etc/modprobe.conf:remove snd-cmipci { /sbin/modprobe -r snd-pcm-oss; } ; /sbin/modprobe -r --first-time --ignore-remove snd-cmipci
/etc/modprobe.conf:alias snd-card-0 snd-cmipci
/etc/modprobe.conf:alias sound-slot-0 snd-cmipci
/etc/modprobe.conf.old:alias sound-slot-0 snd-cmipci
/etc/modprobe.conf.old:#options snd-cmipci max=8 index=min=1
/etc/modprobe.conf.old:install snd-cmipci /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install snd-cmipci && { /sbin/modprobe snd-pcm-oss; /bin/true; }
/etc/modprobe.conf.old:remove snd-cmipci { /sbin/modprobe -r snd-pcm-oss; } ; /sbin/modprobe -r --first-time --ignore-remove snd-cmipci
/etc/modules.conf:alias sound-slot-0 snd-cmipci
/etc/modules.conf:above snd-cmipci snd-pcm-oss
/etc/modules.conf:#options snd-cmipci max=8 index=min=1
/etc/modules.conf:#options snd-cmipci id="first" enable_midi="1"

I've read the page about alsa project CMI8738
But cant tell what options to give that module.

The sound from xmms (using alsa as output)
is not clear at all - and distorted

However doing rmmod to snd-cmipci and
modprobe to snd-cmipci
solves the problem.

Anyidea how to fix that ?
Thanks
Kobi

Mandrake 10.0 and CM8738 sound card solution ?

Hi,

OSS seems to solve the problem, ,so I've disabled alsa and moved on to OSS. (download it from their site - NONREG version !)
I just hope it will be full duplex (for skype e.g.), cause I've already saw a sound driver by OSS, that isnt full duplex...

Thanks,
Kobi.
