Mixer volume?

If you are certain the kernel picked up the sound card (and the speakers are powered on and connected properly ), you might want to try and check the mixer volume.

The device is usually /dev/mixer, and sometimes the volume can be set too low. You could also try 'play -v 10 <soundfile>' to test playing a sound at a higher volume.

Hope this helps... If not, does "cat /dev/sndstat" do anything for you?

Uh, looks like we're talking about PnPray?

Try this:

pnpdump --config > /etc/isapnp.conf

isapnp /etc/isapnp.conf

I'm assuming you have ISA cards. Anyway, since you're already lost, I'm not pulling you too out of the track ;-)

The commands above should return you some tips about addresses and stuff.

Edit /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and put the correct lines to load the modules. Take a look at /usr/src/Documentation (must install /slakware/k1/(forgot the name -- the kernel source .tgz). IT contains directives to modprobe.
