I have a Compaq Presario with a dual boot XP/Mandrakelinux 10.1 system with KDE3.2, Sound System and Kmixer. During the install of Mandrakelinux 10.1 I was prompted as to whether or not I have an ISA sound card. I clicked yes and was prompted to enter either "sndconfig" or "alsaconf" as the root user at start up. Sndconfig would not work, but Alsaconf didi. Alsaconf installed drivers for the ESS 1869 sound card.
When Sound System is opened up, the KDE system is "enabled" and a sound will test. However, no sound willl play when "midi test" is selected. On the hardware tab "auto-detect" is selected but there are no midi device choices. I can not play system sounds, system belll, or CDs. Essentially the only sound is on the KDE sound system test.
Here is some information that others have asked for, I hope it is of help:

I recently went throuh a similar thing with my daughters Presario, it is a model 1245. Here are two links that should help you get sound working. I used both.

This one has a wealth on information on various laptops. http://www.silogram.net/laptop/compaq/sound.htm

This one will tell you all you ever wanted to know about ESS 1869.

http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc/doc-p...x&module=es18xx

Hope this helps.

I am having a hard time with this. No midi is listed in the hardware unerder KDE 3.2 Sound System. Should I install Pmidi or Kmid or something similar?
