alsaconf failure

Hello. I have just installed MANDRAKE 10.1, and I just can't configure my sound card. It is an old isa card, so I ran alsaconf, but with every available driver I try it either does not work or start screeching randomly forcing me to shutdown.

I add as information that previously I had an old slacware distribution in which alsaconf configured my sound card correctly at first attempt...

my card is Crystal sound cs4236...

Any suggestion on how I could try to install it other than with alsaconf?

I would suggest you to download Latest 1.0rc1 alsa sources and compile and install them, which solves issues with ISA sound cards.

on my slackware system it was not detecting als100 ISA sound card. After installating alsa-1.0rc1, it could detect it.

Download these sources and compile and install:

Make sure,

you have developement packages installed, and kernel sources installed, and compile in top-down order, start with alsa-driver then alsa-lib then alsa-plugins ... till alsa-oss.

then run alsaconf to (hopefully) detect your sound card.
