I'm pretty stunned at how well gnome2 works on my
antique 400MHz backup system. [[ gnome2-lite wouldn't go, for

one, but which *.ko I load or compile is the question. If
memory serves, I think this has a Matrox card. I've tried
adding a few sound [snd_*.ko] files, but no sound. The OSS
dialogs open, but the tests produce no sound.. Would the sound
card show up in dmesg if there were a sound card hiding?
Any help out there? This old box is an HP Kayak "XU/XW".
I solved most of my sound problems by taking actions reading
Hm. I forgot about adding the "hints.*"; but catenating
/dev/sndstat indicates that I use snd_sb16.ko and compiling that
in gives me a bunch of fatal undefines. So I added "snd_sbc"
to the KERNCONF and am recompiling.
Shouldn't be this hard; this worked with REdhat, just
What model's the card (or what does pciconf -lv report at least)?
This is strange. A couple hours ago I kldloaded a few modules
and saw that the card was my missing AWE64. Now, when I load
snd_sb16, it looks like an ISA SB 16. It could be either.
Note that if I load just snd_sb.ko, cat'ing /dev/sndstat returns
Interesting: I scripted them ALL in and ind that there are TWO
pcm0: <SB16 DSP 4.16> at io 0x240 irq 9 drq 1:5 bufsz 4096 kld snd_sb16
(1p/1r/0v channels duplex default)
pcm1: <AD1816> at io 0x500 irq 5 drq 0:3 bufsz 8192 kld snd_ad1816
(1p/1r/0v channels duplex)
Not 100% sure, but it looks like your soundcard involves the sb driver
and there might be a separate driver for your card:
