Which soundcard and driver? And have you loaded kernel module for

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2005-04-08 16:46:23 UTC
According to hwbrowser, it's an ATI Technologies Inc. IXP150 AC'97
Audio Controller. The driver is snd-atiixp.

I tried
 modprobe snd-atiixp;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe
snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss
and that got me further. I had to specify the port (there is only one).
I get no sound, and there seems to be no volume control for it.

Comment 3 Martin Stransky 2005-04-15 08:32:16 UTC
atiixp driver doesn't support midi.
