Hey all.

I've got this AWE32 and I just can't make it work. I keep getting this in my log:
Code:
kernel: sb: Interrupt test on IRQ7 failed - Probable IRQ conflict

No matter which IRQ I try.

It was running fine on the 2.4.14 kernel but after upgrading to the 2.4.18 kernel I've been unable to get sound from my computer.

Hope somebody can help me - I want my music back!

- Jacob

All I can say is, you're in for a long haul. I have an AWE32 (non PnP) and haven't been able to get it working.
I'm a little disappointed, because it worked under RedHat 7.1. I've posted some questions under "All Things
Gentoo". Maybe there are some answers there that might help.

Good luck, and if you figure it out, please tell me :cry:

What kernel are you running?
What does /var/log/* say about it?

Maybe it's a bug in the 2.4.18 kernel.

Version2.4.19-r1 (/lib/modules/<kernel version>).

kernel log:
May 4 13:10:56 [kernel] Soundblaster audio driver Copyright (C) by Hannu Savolainen 1993-1996
May 4 13:11:06 [kernel] AWE32: No ISAPnP cards found
May 4 13:11:06 [kernel] <SoundBlaster EMU8000 (RAM0k)>

Thats all I've noticed. Doesn't tell me much :). And I knew it wasn't a PnP card.

What did you do to get it recognized? I could never get sound out of it.

Perhaps we should put this in the FAQ, as I've answered it a few times here, and several times on irc ( #gentoo @ irc.openprojects.net -> I'm sometimes on as qes ).

If you emerge Gnome, it will in turn emerge ESD, the enlightened sound daemon. This daemon allows for several programs to share a soundcard. It is a good thing. KDE has a similar program. It's called ARTS.

ESD / ARTS will start when you start gnome / kde. It will tie up the soundcard at /dev/dsp ( using OSS or ALSA, it doesn't matter ).

To play sounds once ESD / arts has launched, you either need ESD / arts support in that application

OR to kill off ESD / arts

OR to use the wrapper program "esddsp <program name> <program args>" / "artsdsp <program name> <program args>"

Should I write up a more sensible faq for this question, and perhaps somebody can make it sticky in this forum?

Curious: Probably couldn't hurt. Sound in general needs major work IMO. Seems to be the biggest problem with Gentoo.

After reading the above I decided to try out alsa again.

It seems to be working somewhat, though a lot of the docs on the alsa site seem deprecated. Anyways, I'm still having problems. I can now run the mixer, and I can even get a bit of sound. Unfortunately only a split second of it. Then I get various error messages. Trying to play a little .wav from the KDE shares I get:
Code:
ALSA lib pcm_hw.c:411:(snd_pcm_hw_drain) SNDRV_PCM_IOCTL_DRAIN failed: Input/output error

and if I try a regular music .wav file I get:
Code:
aplay: pcm_write:968: write error: Input/output error


What can I do?
