Linuxhelp _ Technical Support _ Audio Problem

Posted by: Kogije Mar 26 2013, 03:45 PM

Okay, I'm running a OLD
500 MHz 32-bit AMD K6-2 with
512 MB Single Channel PC-100 RAM
32 MB Nvidia Riva TNT 2 Video Card
PCI NIC D-Link RTL8139
Creative Labs Sound Blaster 16 on an ISA slot (model CT2770)
80 Gig Maxtor EXT2 SDA1
60 Gig WD EXT3 SDB1
with Linux on SDB1

Its a Fresh Full Install with nvidia Video Driver installed and working

I got rid of /etc/modprobe.conf (but it wasn't empty)
and made my new /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf
which now reads:

alias snd-card-0 snd-sb16
alias sound-slot-0 snd-sb16
options snd-sb16 isapnp=0 port=0x220 irq=5 dma8=1 dma16=5 mpu_port=0x330

The Problem I have is that with the Audio Enabled (it doesn't matter if I use /etc/modprobe.conf or update to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf)
I get something like 1 frame per minute Video Playback

I cannot find ANY Hardware Conflicts!
The Audio Works when it is enabled.
Getting rid of /etc/modprobe.conf and making /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf resolves 3 other issues.
