Linuxhelp _ Hardware Support _ Crystal Pnp Audio System (on Motherboard)

Posted by: poetfreak Feb 7 2004, 07:38 PM

My friend told me it was impossible to configure this for linux. Is that true?

Specs (reported by winDoze, where it works):

Codec-- DMA 1 IRQ 5 I/O 388 534 220
Control Reg. i/o 0120-0127
MPU 401 IRQ 9 I/o 330

umm, I thought IRQ 9 is the video card cascaded or somethun but this works for windoze so that can't be it. sad.gif

What is the manufacturer and model number of the motherboard?

I have no idea. It's a Packard Bell Multimedia 601. Why, would it matter? ohmy.gif

because there are several different Crystal chips and each has a seperate driver ... not only that, but the sound card also contains midi ... and there are many different midi / crystal combos as well...
I didn't find anything on this specific PC yet ... do you know the actual crystal chipset?

I'll try to find something later today.

I can't find anything either...

I got it as a bonus for a job I did so I don't have any of the docs or anything. I can't find anything on the motherboard either, except made in the USA (hmm... ) and a sticker on it that says: PSGV8110617

Compaq/Packard Bell got no info on it like it's their long lost bastard child huh.gif
Thanks for trying anyhoo, you can probably search faster then me since my connection is always less then 1K. mad.gif
