This card uses the es1370 module.

First see if the module is loaded and being used:


If not try to load the module sa root with:

/usr/sbin/modprobe es1370

Also make sure you have the correct permissions for the /dev/dsp and /dev/mixer

To make sure, change the permissions with this command as root:

chmod 666 /dev/dsp* /dev/mixer*
