Re: [TCLUG:4595] Sound still doesn't work

What kind of sound card/chip do you have?  To initialize the sound chip
and get Linux sound working with the Crystal CS4236 in my laptop, I
finally resorted to loading the DOS driver before booting Linux...

Crystal's driver gets loaded in the Win95 CONFIG.SYS file:


Then, I run loadlin in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file to boot Linux:


I hope this helps.

(CONFIG.SYS is actually set up with a boot menu, so I can choose either
Linux or Win95 at bootup, but that's not really relevant to your sound
card problem.)

The boot message states the system detects the sound card. Btw, windoze, upon boot, gives me the following data: SBPro I/O=220 IRQ=5 DMA=1.
