    i'm trying to get my sound card working on a compaq r3000 laptop.

    when i try to play music totem crashes in Gnome and KDE crash handler comes up in KDE.

    so i try:


    atiixp : ATI Technologies Inc SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio
    legacy: Probe Legacy ISA (non-PnP) chips

    if i choose legacy: Probe... chips  I get a warning about probing ISA cards might make your system unstable... so i don't do that one.

    beside I know i have a soundmax card, in windoze that's what it says in device mgr. *btw hate windoze only use it cuz my card works there fine.

    anyway so i've chosen ati soundmax..
    and now i get snd-atiixp
    do you want to modify /etc/modules.conf

    so I say yes

    and now i'm at 'ok, snd-atiixp is configured'
    will prepare the card for playing now
    now i'll run rcalsasound then i'll use amixer to raise the default volumes
    you can change the volume later by using gamix or alsamix
    so i click OK

    and then the output:


    Now ALSA is ready to use.
    For adjustment of volumes, use your favorite mixer.

    Have a lot of fun!


    i'm assuming that means it's able to support the device.

    however, kde crash manager comes up re: sound.

    when i run alsamixer i get "no elems found"

    in gnome totem crashes when a file has sound.

    i've tried like heck to get help with this. i've even emailed the developers at alsa re: this and they said to come here. apparently they are not willing to assist with this. fine.

    i checked soundmax's website and they point me to alsa.

    i'm using slackware 10 kernel 2.4.26

    I'd be very grateful for any help with this soundcard.
