[Sound] NO Sound: Dell i8100 ES1938??

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]<


Hi!  I'm new to the list and need some helping getting my RH8.0 working
with sound.

Running a Dell Inspiron 8100 laptop.  Have the build in ESS Solo-1
ES1938S Maestro-3i card that came with it (I think that's the right
version of ESS Maestro).

I'm trying to get the ALSA files in place so I can get system sounds and
CD Music sound, etc when in GNOME.

Everything seems to go well expect some probs. with the snd-es1938.o
file.  Especially when I /sbin/modprobe snd-1938.o from root.  I get the

# /sbin/modprobe snd-es1938
/lib/modules/2.4.18-17.8.0/kernel/sound/pci/snd-es1938.o: init_module:
No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters,
including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
     You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.18-17.8.0/kernel/sound/pci/snd-es1938.o: insmod
/lib/modules/2.4.18-17.8.0/kernel/sound/pci/snd-es1938.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.18-17.8.0/kernel/sound/pci/snd-es1938.o: insmod
snd-es1938 failed

The snd-es1938.o IS in the /lib/modules/2.4.18-17.8.0/kernel/sound/pci
directory.  I don't seem to have any sound cards installed however.

I get this in dmesg: ESS Solo-1 soundcard not found or device busy.

I also see this in /proc/pci:
Bus  2, device   3, function  0:
   Multimedia audio controller: ESS Technology ES1983S Maestro-3i PCI
Audio Acc
elerator (rev 16).
     IRQ 5.
     Master Capable.  Latency=32.  Min Gnt=2.Max Lat=24.
     I/O at 0xec00 [0xecff].
     Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xf8ffe000 [0xf8ffffff].

Any ideas?  I'm really stuck and would love to get sound in redhat!
Anything else I should check?
