MIDI with ALSA on ESS1869
This is my first post here so I might mess something up despite my careful Reading The Fine Manual. Please let me know and I'll try do things better.
I have installed Debian/Sid on a Siemens Scenic Mobine 750. While a laptop, the question is purely sound-related so I'm not posting to the Mobile forum (getting it to install at all might have been suitable there but I'm past that now).
I'm not a Linux newbie having started five years ago, it's just that I've only tried using it as a desktop system in 1999 and it was a mostly futile attempt back then. Now I'm pretty much in business if it were not for MIDI playback.
I am running kernel 2.4.24 and ALSA is version 1.0.2c-3 compiled and installed the Debian way. Kernel-tree sound is configured as a module and no drivers, OSS or legacy, are configured.
I've had some problems with the snd-es18xx module so I added this to /etc/modutils/alsa
options snd-es18xx isapnp=0 port=0x220 mpu_port=0x330 fm_port=0x388 \
irq=5 dma1=1 dma2=3
probeall snd-es18xx snd-pcm snd-mpu401-uart snd-opl3-lib snd-pnp
probeall snd-mpu401-uart snd-rawmidi
probeall snd-rawmidi snd-seq-device
probeall snd-opl3-lib snd-timed snd-hwdep
probeall snd-pcm snd-page-alloc
probeall snd-pnp isa-pnp
To see which modules ALSA installs, I use the following (all on one line and it won't work if esd or artsd are working with a device different from /dev/null):
Anyway, this is the setup and it's not working. And I *know* I've had it working a few kernel compiles and dist-upgrades ago.
Can anyone shed some light on it please? I want to get this lapotp running as well as possible so I can send the info to tuxmobile.org (they are missing an entry for this particular machine).
