RedHat Linux 8.0 and Ensoniq 1371 sound card


Thru Redhat 7.3 to Redhat 8.0 I have been unable to get sound to work. I do have a Manrake 9.0 partition on my computer and it works there. lspci list the following

01:09.0 Multimedia audio controller: Ensoniq ES1371 [AudioPCI-97] (rev 09)

lsmod shows

es1371 30760 0 (autoclean)

I ran sndconfig and it found Model: Ensoniq|ES1371││ [AudioPCI-97], which is correct. But no sample sound came out. I tried running insmod es1371 and it said it was already there. It is just so strange because Mandrake, which is based on Redhat finds it. But nothing in Redhat. Thank you.

Is there any error message in Redhat related to the sound?
Have you checked the volume in a mixer?

I run a SoundBlaster card here with that chip, these are the sound modules that are loaded:-
Code:
es1371                 34184   2 (autoclean)
ac97_codec             13448   0 (autoclean) [es1371]
My modules.conf:-
Code:
alias sound-slot-0 es1371
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
You do know that the sound server is disabled in RH8 by default?

Hello dnar and johang

My modules.conf is the same as yours, dnar. You said the sound server is disabled by default. How do you enable it? johang, you said "Have you checked the sound in a mixer". Not sure what you mean. Thanks both for your input. I really appreciate the help you are giving. If you think of any additional stuff, would be more than happy to hear it.

From the RedHat menu, "Preferences" -> "Sound" -> "Enable Sound Server at Startup".

What sound card do you have exactly?

Also, do this: "/sbin/lsmod" and post the results.

Hi everyone.

I got an e-mail from someone else who I had asked about this and he said that sometimes the sound was set too low. So I Sound & Video/Volume control. It was set about the middle, so I ratcheted it up a little and guess what, I have sound. Strange. Well it works now. Not sure what to make of it. Thanks again for all the tips. Have a great day.

Jim

hrm... let me guess.. kmixer? for some sadistic reason, almost all distros ship with kmixer set to mute - i've seen at least 20 people with the exact same problem since i've been posting here. glad you got it working at least .

Need help on 1371

Hi, folks,
I am using Redhat 8.0 on Dell's Optiplex GX110, which has the on board Epsonic 1371. The playback works perfect for me, so I thought my Epsonic 1371 is working all right, until today, I found that I can not record. I try to use the sound recorder and other program like gnome meeting, and just find that the linux can not hear anything from microphone. While I reboot it to Win2k, the recording works fine, which means it is not hardware problem.
Can anybody give me some suggestions? Thanks in advance,
alan,
