Miata & sb awe64 problems

Post by Juhana Paa » Sat, 17 Jan 2004 03:35:23


I recently installed soundblaster awe64 isa to my Miata.
Tried straight with kernel 2.4.23 oss drivers, and they did what I
expected, only onboard ESS detected.

So I installed ALSA drivers, but afterall I get ESS up and working but
Soundblaster doesn't do anything.
Driver don't find SB AWE neither SB16 driver doesn't find anything.
I tried several IRQ/PORT/DMA options for it but no luck.

Also disabling ESS from AlphaBIOS doesn't do anything, ESS is still
detected maybe that option works for WinNT but no Linux.

And there's also problem with ESS, when playing mp3/wav/eg. files, it
sounds correct but when I play video files (avi,mpg...) I get crackled
Sometime ago I get (different hardware) similar when there was IRQ
conflicts but it still doesn't sound good if I change IRQ to another.

And don't know should SB be detected by isapnptools, pnpdump doesn't find

Debian Unstable, kernel 2.4.23.
Miata PWS600a.
Onboard ESS & SB AWE 64 ISA (not gold)

1. Hiss recording through line-in with SB AWE64

2. SB AWE64-16 with Windows 2000

Since installing W2K I get a lot of noise when playing most wav files and a
lot of movie files with WMP. It actually sounds like the old RealMedia used
to sound - like it's playing under water. The same wave files when played
with WinAmp are much better. You can hear a tiny amount of distortion, but
it's much, much better than WMP. I've looked for new drivers for W2K but
Creative doesn't have anything specifically for W2K and I'm afraid to load
NT4 drivers. Any suggestions?
