RE: [linrad] RE: soundcard duplex mode


does   /dev/sndstat exist?  If so send that to us please.

I always fix this little problem(s) by


chmod a+rw /dev/dsp*
chmod a+rw /dev/mix*
chmod a+rw /dev/seq*

and all seems right with the world thereafter. ;-)

Some cards, such as the Lynx L22 have DIFFERENT devices
as input and output.  For example,

/dev/dsp0  is for PLAYBACK ONLY


/dev/dsp8  is for RECORD ONLY.

You could have such a situation with your card.  I missed which
card it is.

The device numbers I just gave you assume that the Lynx is the first
device installed (or the only one).  I have another installation
where it is /dev/dspX  and /dev/dsp(X+8) depending on who I decide
to install with it.

I HATE SOUNDCARDS!!!!!!!!!!!!  I love SDR but I have spent more time
dealing with sound cards and sound card issues than any other aspect
of the SDR situation and probably ten times as much as the DSP.

Hi Rob,

I tried to install RedHat 9 on my 200MHz MMX but I can not
figure out how to do it. Seems like the kernel on the CD
is compiled for an I686....

It works fine on my PIV computer, I tried to cecompile the
kernel but was unable to figure out how GRUB works. They claim
(in the big book I got the CDs with) that everything is so much
simpler now - but to me it is in the opposite way. I follow
the instructions, they are more complex and in the end I can not
boot the new kernel.

I suspect oss3991h-linux-x86-v26.tar which is the one I use
now with Fedora will not work under those old distributions
that I can boot on my MMX....

In any case the problem is most likely OSS and I think they will
help you out. Should there be problems, I can supply an old OSS
version that works with an older Linux distribution.
