In another thread, Bill Nottingham pointed out to me
that the functionality represented by pnpdump has been
incorporated into the kernel.
The thread subject is "[Sound] PNP sound cards on dual

So the information I gave you is out of date.

If the pnp part of the kernel is working for your
card, it should appear at some io ports.
It might even pick the same io ports as it does under
I don't know if doing a 'cat /proc/ioports' would
yield any information.

My system is running RedHat 8.0 and I do not have a
/dev/synth.  I do, however, have /dev/audio,
/dev/mixer, and a bunch of /dev/midi0, midi1, ...
device files.

However, my dmesg yields the following line:

speakup:  initialized device: /dev/synth, node (MAJOR
10, MINOR 25)
