ive got a bit of a problem and was wondering if anyone on this list
could be of any help...
Mandrake linux 8.1
Soundblaster 16 ISA plug and pray..
basicically - i wiped my box the other day, and reinstalled mandrake
8.1. For the rest of the day i was happily listening to mp3s with xmms.
I shut down my computer that night, and the next morning when i booted
up, i started up xmms and it complained about not being able to open
audio......and upon investigation i found that /dev/dsp no longer existed..
when i tried a
i got the following errors:
sb: SoundBlaster Vibra16X sb config failed (out of resources?)[-2]
sb: no ISAPnP cards found, trying standard ones
however a file /dev/dsp did then appear as follows: (this doesnt look
right to me...)
[root_AT_larry dev]# ls -l | grep dsp
crw------- 1 jordan audio 14, 3 Feb 3 20:19 dsp-
if i try to set up my card using sndconfig (which has always worked in
the past), it correctly detects my card but then fails to load the
required kernel modules.
as a further stab in the dark i wondered if there was an irq conflict
going on somewhere, here is the output of cat'ing /proc/interrupts to a
0: 712962 XT-PIC timer
1: 6057 XT-PIC keyboard
2: 0 XT-PIC cascade
7: 2 XT-PIC parport0
8: 1 XT-PIC rtc
11: 5471 XT-PIC usb-uhci, eth0
12: 108304 XT-PIC PS/2 Mouse
14: 7515 XT-PIC ide0
15: 8 XT-PIC ide1
if i remember correctly my soundcard used to work on irq 5 .
i really dont have a clue how to sort this out, so any help or advice
would be welcome,
