Subject: ISA Soundblaster problem

The Maintainers list does not contain anyone for 2.4 Soundblaster
modules, so perhaps some one on the mailing list is aware of a
solution. My ISA Soundblaster 16waveffects worked fine in kernel 2.2
with XMMS. But I have never been successful in a varity of 2.4
kernels, the latest being 2.4.5-ac12. This is what I know:

isapnp: Scanning for PnP cards...
isapnp: Calling quirk for 01:00
isapnp: SB audio device quirk - increasing port range
isapnp: Card 'Creative SB16 PnP'
isapnp: 1 Plug & Play card detected total

}modprobe sb
/lib/modules/2.4.5-ac12/kernel/drivers/sound/sb.o: init_module: No such device
/lib/modules/2.4.5-ac12/kernel/drivers/sound/sb.o: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
/lib/modules/2.4.5-ac12/kernel/drivers/sound/sb.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.5-ac12/kernel/drivers/sound/sb.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.5-ac12/kernel/drivers/sound/sb.o: insmod sb failed

options sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330

sb: No ISAPnP cards found, trying standard ones...
sb: dsp reset failed.

So it seems that PnP finds the card, but the connections (or even the
forced values) to the sb module fail. Back when this was a single
processor machine, but still running 2.4 kernel, a windoze
installation found the SB at the listed interface parameters.

Anyone have a solution?

Same problem without modules.conf settings, valid version of mod
utilities, a web search did not help,...
