Description ralph 1999-07-20 20:15:11 UTC
hello, i was wondering if you have a driver and/or support information for the Neomagic Magicmedia 256AV video/audio chipset? im running one of the new Sony VAIO Z505SX superslim notebooks with RedHat Linux 6.0 on it. the video seems to work great at 1024x768... the previous vaios use a sb16 compatible chipset (which im sure all of you already know :) any ideas what i can do?

What does lspci and/or pnpdump say?
Comment 2 ralph 1999-07-20 20:41:59 UTC
lspci relevant<sp> information: 00:08.0 VGA compatible controller: Neomagic Corporation [MagicGraph 256AV] (rev 20) 00:08.1 Multimedia Audio Controller: Neomagic Corporation: Unknown device 8005 (rev 20) pnpdump: # No board found

OK. There isn't a native driver for it, however, you can try the following: The NeoMagic sound emulates a WSS (AFAIR); so you could try: modprobe ad1848 io=0x530 irq=<irq that the card uses, use lspci/cat /proc/pci> dma=1 and see if that helps; the last ditch version would be: modprobe sb io=0x220 irq=<some irq> dma=1 The main problem would be discovering the card's settings - booting to Windows could be helpful.

i received the following email from NeoMagic: Date: Tue, 20 Jul 1999 14:55:18 -0700 From: Tech Support <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: Audio Chipset Drivers Please be aware that we are currently working on making this available. At this point in time, we are unable to anticipate the release date of this driver. Please check back with us on a later date. Thank you for your inquiry. NeoMagic Tech Support , the settings you suggested did not work , i didnt not load windows at all on this notebook, (was planning on returning it :) the pci sound card is on irq 9 , not sure of the io

Unfortunately, we really can't support this card until a specific driver is written for it. Probably the only way you could currently get it to work is to warm boot from dos after loading compatibility drivers there.
