Onboard Sound in Linux
    #1984781 - 10/06/03 08:57 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I recently purchased a Compaq Presario 2266 for use as a FTP server and installed Slackware 9.1 on it. I've been over all the bullshit about Linux and onboard sound many times, and I can't seem to get it to work on this computer. Any ideas?

Have you had this sound chip working in another OS? Are you sure the sound is enabled in the CMOS?

Any help would depend totally on what sound chip it is. If nothing at http://www.alsa-project.org/ helps, neither can I. I have onboard sound integrated in my Via kt333 chipset, but never could get it to work in linux. I ended up disabling the onboard and buying a pci128; that's worked great so far.

Sound is enabled, the problem is that it isn't even detecting a sound card... I guess I have to specify a physical location instead of auto-detect, how to do that?

I've been asked the chipset, yet I have no idea how to find it.

You'll have to open the box to find out what it is. Generally there will be another chip with a major sound chipset vendor (ESS, CRYSTAL, CREATIVE), if you dont see one of those find out which chipset (there are (usually) 2 main chips on a motherboard (north/south-bridge) see what these chips are then lookup which sound chipset they intigrated into the set, then find out if linux has support for the sound device.

From http://neurosis.hungry.com/~ben/software/presario2266.html

driver: ESS688 AudioDrive
I/O: 0x220
IRQ: 5
DMA: 1

If it's one of those crappy SB-compatible soundcards as I think it is, uncomment the /sbin/modprobe sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 etc line in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules , and edit to fit your system. Also, read the documentation, the location is provided in the sound section of rc.modules.

I'm not sure if that's an ugly way of doing it but it worked for my Compaq Armada's ESS. The best way of finding out the real settings and chipset is to install Win9x on it and write it down, before nuking it again.

That doesn't help for Slack, it only allows you to specify a soundcard location.

Location?

What I said before worked for me in Slack 9.0.

Dude as the root user, type

"cat /proc/pci"

Look through the dump to find the chipset on your sound card, It is most likely a CMEDIA XXXX or something, once you find that you can probably get a little more help.

Its not even listed under there... only thing listed is the modem and some SiS stuff for IDE, but nothing for IRQ 5 or even a soundcard.

In BIOS Audio Options, you can enable/disable/auto multimedia device and sound, and when sound is set to enabled, you have the options for base I/O address, MPU I/O address, FM I/O address, interrupt (5, as said before), and 2 DMA channels, one set to 1 and one set to 0.
