Hi, i have installed dsl 3 or 4 times, in change with ubuntu (x,flux,etc), but now i have again dsl v. 3.3 RC1, because its much faster on my old laptop than any other linux i tried.
My System is Compaq Armada 4210T, 233 MHz, 48 MB, 6 GB HD, with Win98 on 2GB Part. and dsl on the rest.
The system of dsl with unc and uci ist very fast and the windowmanagers fluxbox and jwm are great too.
But now i have some problems with the sound and the wlan.
My soundchip is an es1878, that should work with the sb-driver, but both threads, where the problem is described, couldn't help me.
I tried modprobe with some sb-options and i tried sndconfig with all available options and the default-values, what are the same as in windows. (in windows the sound is ok, so that i am shure, that it's not a hardwaredefekt).
With xmms (startet in a root-terminal) i always get the error-popup (with oss, esound and alsa)
"Couldn't open audio - Please check that 1. ...2. ...3. ..."
When the output-plugin is set to OSS the terminal says
"** Warning **: oss_open(): Failed to open audio device /dev/dsp: No such..."
sb 0 (unused)
sb_lib 0 sb
uart401 0 sb_lib
sound 0 sb_lib uart401
soundcore 4 (autoclean) sb_lib sound
dmesg says: SB 3.01 detected OK (220)
ESSchip ES1878 detected
sb: interrupt test on IRQ5 failed - propable IRQ conflict
cat /proc/interrupts says
5: 2 XT-PIC soundblaster
Please help me, i don't know, what i could try.
PS: About the problem with wlan i will ask in Network
