I never got sound to work in any linux distro on this machine, so I am not terribly convinced I can get it to work with DSL. Even Xubuntu, which is pretty good with detecting things never picked up the card. I think it is an ESS SoundBlaster compatible ISA card, Fujitsu lifebook 770TX, PII so I am pleased that DSL exists because it is the only OS that makes it usable at all.
I have the alsa package load at startup, my grub line has a reference to alsa as well.
I did a modprobe snd-(everything in the readme file that started with sb, and es, and nothing was recognized.
I think the last thing that had the sound working was a windows install 95 then 2000, but 2000 ran slow slow slow. I think the card is fine physically, but other than that... not sure. If I do an lspci, I get a reference to an ISA bridge, but no reference to sound. I did an lspci -v, but I don't know how to scroll back in the DSL terminal:-(
