Help getting an old sb16 ISA to work
I use FC4.
I have an old sb16 ISA which I can plug on my linux box (the only one that has ISA slots), so I can get the sb128PCI out to use it elsewhere.
I first plugged the pci card out, put the ISA card in.
It was not autodetected by the autodetection utility. Trying to use xmms returned a message that there was something wrong with the card.
I downloaded the alsa packs, did what the instructions said (compiled with the right parameter etc)
When I tried to probe it as instructed, it failed. Then I tried alsaconf. It found the card, did the additions to the /etc/modprobe.conf. I tried alsamixer, I could manipulate the volumes.
At this point I thought I was OK. However it doesnt work. I run xmms and I no longer get the same error message. It opens music files just doesnt play them at all. Its not the volume either.
Any idea at all? I know the card is not pnp. In fact alsaconf put the respective option in modprobe.conf and it detected the IRQ, DMA and other parameters correctly (they are jumper controlled).
Could it be conflicting with another device? How do I check?
