LinuxNewbie.org: Slackware Sound NHF for the CMI8330

Dec 03, 1999, 16:55 (1 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Sensei for this link. ]

"...after days of headaches from doing EXACTLY as the docs instruct, I gave up, and started monkeying around to get my CMI8330 plug and pray sound card working under Slackware Linux 7. Guess what? None of the docs have ALL the instructions needed!"

"Here are instructions that actually work. (you have to be logged in as "root" for this to work)."

"First, you need to know all your sound card's Addresses, IRQs, and DMAs. To find these, from W95, go into Device manager ("system" icon under Control Panel), and open the "properties" tab for each device listed under your sound card. Write it all down, and guard it with your life, or at least until Linux is making noises."
