    Trying to get Crystal Sound working on IBM...


    I have installed Slackware 10 on an IBM Intellistation PII-350 with 192 meg RAM and it works fine except for the sound. WHen I login to KDE I can FAINTLY hear sounds through the built in speaker, but not audio CD's, or anything else, an d no apparent way to adjust the volume up.

    In the KDE info screen it shows:
    Sound driver3.8.1a-980705 (ALSA v 1.0.5a emulation code)

    Installed drivers:
    Type 10 ALSA emulation

    Card Config:
    CS4235 at 0x534, irq 5, dma 1&3

    Audio devices:
    0: CS4235 (duplex)

    Synth devices:
    0:OPL3 FM synth

    Midi devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG

    Mixers:
    0: CS4235

    Now in the KDE Control Center it shows audio device as autodetect, with the checkbox beside Full Duplex.

    In the :Select your midi device section it shows:
    OPL3 synth OPL3FM Port ALSA device

    Anyone who could get this sound working under SLackware would be most appreciated, as I am a relative newbie. I know everything works fine under Windows, but I don't want that!

    Thanks!

    If you can hear sounds then the device is recognized and installed . You only need to run alsamixer, and unmute the sound with pressing M to each setting and adjust them.
    I have an IntelliStation M Pro with Slackware 9.1 - I had to download the alsa drivers, install them and then modprobe snd-cns4236 (4235 is also avilable). Then run alsamixer and unmuted it ans everything works nice ... hope that helps
