I think SlackWare 9.1 recognizes my SB 16 PCI.
Here is what I see:
Nov 10 01:12:42 Amigo kernel: es1371: version v0.32 time 15:29:01 Feb 28 2004
Nov 10 01:12:42 Amigo kernel: PCI: Found IRQ 10 for device 00:0f.0
Nov 10 01:12:42 Amigo kernel: es1371: found chip, vendor id 0x1274 device id 0x5880 revision 0x02
Nov 10 01:12:42 Amigo kernel: es1371: found es1371 rev 2 at io 0xe000 irq 10
Nov 10 01:12:42 Amigo kernel: es1371: features: joystick 0x0
Nov 10 01:12:42 Amigo kernel: ac97_codec: AC97 codec, id: TRA35 (TriTech TR A5)
Update: I uncommented the wrong line in "/etc/rc.d/rc.modules" Opps! Linux was looking for an ISA SoundBlaster 16 instead of a PCI / es1371 card.
I see my soundcard and AC97 when I type /sbin/lsmod.
I don't see a file called lspci in "/sbin"
When I type "cat /dev/sndstat," I see this message:
"No such device"
When I type dmesg, I don't see a message saying "Sound initialization started"
Maybe I should install an Alsa driver?
I would download RedHat's isapnp tools, but I can't find them. I could install a DOS driver too.
Or may I should modify the line
"/sbin/mprobe es1371" in "/ect/rc.d/r.modules"?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
