MDK Command to set an IRQ?
Need forum help. With my Omnibook 800CT everything runs great with Mandrake9.2 except sound. After reading many many forums and testing Mandrake & PC, concluded that the sound board (ESS1888) requires IRQ=5. I have the Alsa module ready to modprobe but the PCMCIA/PCI combo takes the IRQ=5 early in the boot process and I never get sound. I also can not get a modprobe of the Alsa module accepted for the same reason.
So, the question for the experts is....
What file, process, or sequence can I kedit to have the sound boot first and the PCI/PCMCIA boot second?
Many thanks to anyone who can offer a way to do that!
Edit: Also tried Knoppix with the same result.
