No sound for Dell Optiplex GX/pro
First post alert:-)
I'm trying to repatriate a Dell Optiplex GXpro 200 USB off Windows/NT to RedHat 9. It's a
dual-cpu 200MHz dinosaur with 128MB, SCSI based storage and CD-ROM.
So far I've got it dual booted fine using grub, using an smp kernel 2.4.30-31smp but not able to get sound working.
This system has on board NIC and sound, as well as a Creative ViBRA16X PnP:Audio card. From other posts, I see this tool, lspci, to list what PCI cards are installed(?) and it shows this:
[root@peewee sbin]# lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corp. 440FX - 82441FX PMC [Natoma] (rev 02)
00:0d.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corp. 82371SB PIIX3 ISA [Natoma/Triton II] (rev 01)
00:0d.1 IDE interface: Intel Corp. 82371SB PIIX3 IDE [Natoma/Triton II]
00:0d.2 USB Controller: Intel Corp. 82371SB PIIX3 USB [Natoma/Triton II] (rev 01)
00:0e.0 PCI bridge: Digital Equipment Corporation DECchip 21052 (rev 02)
00:11.0 SCSI storage controller: Adaptec AHA-2940U/UW/D / AIC-7881U
01:08.0 Ethernet controller: 3Com Corporation 3c905 100BaseTX [Boomerang]
01:09.0 Ethernet controller: 3Com Corporation 3c905C-TX/TX-M [Tornado] (rev 30)
01:0a.0 VGA compatible controller: Matrox Graphics, Inc. MGA 2064W [Millennium] (rev 01)
However, when I run System Settings -> Soundcard Detection, it doesn't find any
But, when I run System Tools -> Hardware browser, it lists the Creative card for 'Sound cards'.
I think this suggests a conflict but unsure how to triage further.:-(
I was unable to find the 'sndconfig' tool mentioned in other posts, so I'm stuck. Oh, sound on WNT was fine.
