sound configuration problem on toshiba
I have instaled Mandrake 10 on my Toshiba Satellite 4010CDT. The installation did not recognize my sound and later running sndconfig did not work. It appears that the control I/O is set in the bios as 538 which is not an option in sndconfig. Can anyone tell me the proper place to edit the config file so I can get my sound working? Any other ideas will be gretly appreciated.

that laptop appears to use the OPL3-SA3 sound chipset, so try running "modprobe opl3" as root, this should hopefully load all the necesary modules for you. once you run that, and assuming there are no nasty messages already, check the last few lines of output when you run "dmesg" to see how it went. if that's ok then it's good to go.

more info please
Thanks for a quick reply. As I am new to Linux but not to computers, I am not sure where to find modprobe opl3, is it a part of the mandrake distribution or is it an rpm I can download and run. You are correct BTW about the sound being opl3 sax3

go to the console or open up a terminal, as root type

"modprobe opl3"

Didn't work
thanks but that didn't work. That comand did nothing from the root console sorry.

it doesn't give any feedback normally. try typing 'lsmod' to see if the module is loaded.....
