Creative sound blaster 16pci module for Slackware ?


I need to know what is the sound support for the sound blaster card .I've just installed it to see if it works bef ore i buy it .Tried already Sound blaster pro/16 and ES1370 support but after reboot they showed same error lines (at the end of the kernel load). thanks.


PS After uncomment a line i saved it and quit for reboot . Did i miss something?


PEACE?

/lib/modules/2.2.9...hint:insmod errorscan be caused by incorrect module parameters including invalid IO or parameters

there are several lines about the device or resource being busy and emuk1.0.gz failure .


PS Does being busy mean another device could be using that particular door? Like a ISA modem (my case)

Have you tried the 1371 and emu10k1 drivers yet? Comment out the drivers you have loading now for sound, save and reboot. When you get to the console try the others for example:

/sbin/modprobe emu10k1
Etc...Then you don't have to comment and uncomment modules and reboot everytime. That way you can finger out which works in one boot. If you still have problems, look into ALSA, as i've heard good things about those drivers. It's possible something else is using the same resources, but a good idear would be to upgrade the kernel to 2.4.5 or download an even newer one than on the disk and make sure you have PCI bus scanning enabled and isapnp also. That way the kernel will scan the pci bus and autoallocate the resources and your ISA modem if plug-play will be detected easier. That's just a few things. In the end you may just have to specify the resources yourself such as IRQ DMA and IO.

Just remembered that yesterday went into some old questions about this topic and and i felt like people were also having problems with sound cards on slackware . I remember someone talking about sudden changes apparently with no reason on sound config.Is this true? Or is just "unconfirmed reports"


PEACE

Can't confirm any reports, but since the module is loading coreectly and no errors, then go into your BIOS and make sure PNP OS Installed is set to NO. That's always a cause of sound problems.

The pnp was already disabled . I looked into the BIOS and found 3 kinds of sound cards ;

1 onboard enabled
2 onboard disabled
3 sound blaster disabled
(still i saw IRQ=5 of the sound blaster and some other changeable items that were not available).

If the lines on boot tells me that :

Quote:
found module es1371 rev 8 at io 0xc400 IRQ 10
why do they have different IRQ ? (namely IRQ5 and IRQ10 on the same device)

Do you think i could possibly enable the sound card and disable the other onboards ? Change perhaps the value of IRQ to 10 ? I've made a "copy" of my bios so i don't get lost with the settings.I hope you dig my mess. By the way i installed again with the 2.4.5 kernel version and disabled the 2.2.9 .


PS: assuming that i had the sound card working with another distro on the same computer and the same configuration , can't one reject the possibility of conflict or devices being busy? Sorry about all this endless questions .

Well, most new boards with onboard sound have a couple different options. You can enable the AC97 Codec onboard sound or you can disable it and enable Sound Blaster, which uses the same chipset to emulate a Sound Blaster. You can try that if'n you'd like and no, it doesn't sound like you have any conflicts. The only thing that other distros like Mandrake have that Slack doesn't is sndconfig which will attempt to autodetect and configure your sound. I haven't looked into it, but am sure it's downloadable. The Sound Blaster emulation has different resources because they are specified instead of allocated. For example a Sound Blaster is usually IRQ5 DMA3 IO port 330 (If i remember correctly). My brain isn't working full-on yet, got up a tad late. Lemme tinkle a little here... LOL

The I/o port could be the item mpu-401 disabled
mpu-401 I/O adress 300h-303h ? shall i enable it? if afirmative this is the right interval(300h-303h)?

Ok here is a quote from another post that may help.

Quote:
If you look into it, you'll see somewhere in it lines for installing sound modules. See if yours is listed. If it isn't, just use the lines as a guide to create your own entry in the file. That's what I did with zipslack. My line looks like this: /sbin/modprobe sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 mpu_io=0x330
This is pretty much the de facto for a Sound Blaster, so what you could do is disable the AC97 in your bios, enable Sound Blaster and write this line into your rc.modules file yourself. Here is the thread just in case you want to go look at the dialog...Here...

This is not a joke : yesterday i looked at the back of my machine and realize the sound card was not connected ( no plugs ) the wires were connected to the original onboard card . Still i have no sound on Slackware but i got it working with windows. I tried several changes but they don't seem to change much . Nevertheless ( i have to say it to someone ) something happend in my understanding about linux i'm begining to see a small light
