Description Darrell Long 2000-01-24 04:03:52 UTC
I can't get any sound with a Sound Blaster PCI 128.  This card works with
Debian (which one of my students uses), but not with RedHat 6.0.

1. sndconfig finds the card and declares it a ES1371.

2. The sox process hangs, as does play, and just about every other sound
thing (so sndconfig doesn't complete).

3. es1371: dma timed out?? -- that's what I get in the dmesg log.

4. At boot time it says:

es1371: version v0.13 time 10:41:53 Sep 27 1999
es1371: found adapter at io 0x1480 irq 10
es1371: features: joystick 0x0
es1371: codec vendor  revision 0
es1371: codec features none
es1371: stereo enhancement: no 3D stereo enhancement

5. /proc/pci says:
  Bus  0, device  15, function  0:
    Multimedia audio controller: Ensoniq ES1371 (rev 7).
      Slow devsel.  IRQ 10.  Master Capable.  Latency=96.  Min Gnt=12.Max
      I/O at 0x1480 [0x1481].

6. And, of course, Windoze likes it so I know the card is OK.

I'm hoping you guys can help -- it's the first time I've asked RedHat for
support -- since I'm getting tired of buying sound cards (tried a PCI 512

Try a 2.2.15preX kernel; the driver is fixed there.

The PCI512 should work with the em10k1 driver available
from Creative Labs.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2000-01-24 17:16:59 UTC
The PCI 128 you have should work with 2.2.15preX; that's where
the es1371 driver was fixed to work with the newer chipsets.
