ok, I've followed your suggestion and now I have sound back, but not

AWE32: No ISAPnP cards found
AWE32: not detected

I used to be able to load awe_wave... and my card is the old model,
not an isapnp one

also, in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/sound/Soundblaster, multiple=0
is considered a hack and I should report a bug (hope this is a valid
bug report :-)


Here is what I have in modules.conf regarding sound:

# first (and only) sound card
alias sound-slot-0 sb
# sound services: 0=mixer 2=midi 3,4=dsp
alias sound-service-0-0 sb
alias sound-service-0-2 awe_wave
alias sound-service-0-3 sb

alias midi awe_wave

alias char-major-14 sb
#alias char-major-14 v_midi
#alias char-major-14-1 awe_wave
#alias char-major-14 adlib_card
#alias char-major-14 opl3

# disable isapnp probing (isapnp=0) and multiple card search
# The latter is a bug workaround
options sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330 isapnp=0

# enable persistent DMA buffer (1=enable, 0=disable)
options sound dmabuf=0

options opl3 io=0x388
#options adlib_card io=0x388 # FM synthetiser

add above sb awe_wave opl3 v_midi

# load soundfonts
post-install awe_wave /usr/local/bin/sfxload default
