IBM Thinkpad 600E problems configuring sound for slackware 9.1
i just installed slackware 9.1 on this laptop, and when i use alsaconf, it says that the search notices im using a 600e thinkpad, but it tells me this:
Looks like you having a Thinkpad 600E notebook.
On this notebook, CS4236 driver should be used
although CS46xx is detected.
Shall i try to snd-cs4236 driver and probe
the Legacy ISA configuration?
When i say yes to this, my computer freezes, when i try to just install the CS46xx driver, it doesn't work... any1 had this problem can help me figure this out? greatly appreciated,
The cs46xx driver does not work with the 600E, at least not to my knowledge. The cs4236 Alsa driver *does* work though.
This is my setup in /etc/modules.conf (actually, it's in /etc/modutils/alsa but I run Debian):
Hey thanks for the info. This type of information sharing is the true beauty of Linux for me.
I just would like to point out a minor correction in line five that I spoted after an error.
options snd-cs4236 index=0 id=Card1 isapnp=0 port=0x530 cport=0x538 mpu_port=0x330 fm_port=0x388 sb_port=0x220 irq=5 dma1=1 dma2=0 # snd_mpu_irq=9 snd_dma1_size=xxx snd_dma2_size=xxx
take out the "#" sign before snd_mpu....
Actually, I have that part commented out (using the # character) because the module won't load when I pass snd_mpu_irq=whatever to the module. Since it works fine without the last three parameters I just commented them out as I don't like deleting stuff from configs, comments are a lot more useful in the long run. :)
Thanks. I pick up a 600e for real cheap this week, mostly just to fool around with and of course, couldn't get the sound working. However, I carefully followed your instructions for the /etc/modules.conf script and voila! Well, not one hundred percent perfect (system notification works and will only play CD's via xine - like, what's up with that?) but at least I got something coming out of those tinny little speakers:D .
One quick question though. When loading Slack, it appears that insmod is still looking to install the cs42xx driver and of course fails. How do I get it to stop trying to load it? Not critical but it would save some boot time.
