Soundcard does not work - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi, When linux starts (SuSe 8.2 pro) it says initializing sound driver. I go into to manually add in YAST2 Control Center. Driver is listed SB16 -> ViBra16S I select and then it says there is a problem - possibly with address or IRQ. I tried manual and selected each optional value - to no avail. The sound cared is made on my Dell mother board. Any help would be appreciated Jay...

    Default Soundcard does not work

    Hi,

    When linux starts (SuSe 8.2 pro) it says initializing
    sound driver.

    I go into to manually add in YAST2 Control Center.

    Driver is listed SB16 -> ViBra16S

    I select and then it says there is a problem - possibly with
    address or IRQ. I tried manual and selected each optional value - to no
    avail.

    The sound cared is made on my Dell mother board.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Jay

    Please post more information, like the output of "dmesg" and "lsmod". Also,
    Knoppix-Linux has an excellent hardware detection and runs completely off a
    CD, if you have DSL you perhaps should download the latest version, burn a
    CD, boot your PC and check for the sound settings done by Knoppix. It might
    help you setting the correct values in SuSE-Linux...

    The latest Knoppix can be downloaded here:

    KNOPPIX_V3.2-2003-09-05-EN.iso

    Hi Joerg,

    Thanks so much for the information.
    I'm very very new to Linux and
    to be honest did not know much about the
    two utiltites you mentioned: "dmesg" and "lsmod"

    I was in the YAST2 control center which is
    GUI based.

    I have juste decided to wipe out my current
    new installation and reinstall. I turned off (in BIOS) my NIC card which may
    help with the IRQ's when I reinstal LINUX.

    Thanks so much!'
    I truly appreciate your time and assistance!

    Jay
