i think ALSA doesnt support this type of soundcard yet.
No I think ALSA supports it, I just can't stand ISA cards. Try maybe loading the isa-pnp module first. If that doesn't help you'll have to find out your irq and io parameters.

another thing. i downloaded the kernel upgrade, kernel 2.4.20-20.9.i586 while i have alsa kernel modules for i386. do you think this affects also?
It might. Get the i586 ALSA rpm and see if it's any better.

anyway, what is OSS? will it work with my soundcard?
OSS stands for Open Source Sound. It's the old set of sound drivers for linux. There is a module for you card but likely you'll run into similar problems with irq settings and such. You can try the command I gave you above and see if that helps you.

Sorry to hump on your thread but I used to run one of these cards under Mandrake 8.1 long ago.
I set the card up with "harddrake" (irq's, dma, and such).
Acording to Mandrake "harddrake" will work with Redhat.
Here's a link to the faq:

I hope this helps.

i've already done the modprobe isa-pnp command but i got the same output.

regarding HardDrake, i'll try it.

There was also a sgalaxy module there. That's the OSS driver.

Well type lsmod and see if there's a modules called "soundcore". If not, do a modprobe soundcore (as root) and then try modprobing ALSA again. If it still doesn't work and if you run windows then pillage the dma and irq settings from there and try them. No sound modules will load without soundcore, though.

Also, did make sure that the ALSA modules you got EXACTLY match your kernel version? I looked through the thread again but couldn't find the right post.

OK. If you can get yourself a PCI card. MUCH easier to configure.
