Description ted 1999-10-12 07:15:44 UTC
Hi !

I have a Dell PII 400MHz machine with a Turtle Beach sound
card. This card is enable to simulate the classic
soundblaster cards. When I try to setup the sound card with
Sndconfig, I have troubles. Sndconfig does not find the
right sound card and does not allow me to choose one within
a list. It just picks up one, says it does not work and stop
there. No choices, no lists ...

Thanks in advance for any advice

If it's what I'm thinking of, the Dells can ship with the
Turtle Beach Montego (or Montego II). These are based on
the Aureal Vortex I and II chipsets. The SB compatibility of
these chips is done with a DOS TSR - it's not anything done
in hardware, so it's not useful under linux.

Due to the fact that Aureal is unwilling to give out programming
specs for these cards, there are no drivers currently available.
