I was trying to get rid of the separate sound card in an old Compaq Deskpro En (Pentium III) I use on a jukebox project. Easy job when you have the needed settings.
I was trying to get rid of the separate sound card in an old Compaq Deskpro En (Pentium III) I use on a jukebox project. Alsa-conf would only detect some weird isa-pnp card that did not work. After searching a bit I found out that the card is an ESS 1869 and is not autodetected. Reading on the alsa website I found that these are the settings that work:
# ALSA portion alias char-major-116 snd alias snd-card-0 snd-es18xx options snd-es18xx enable=1 isapnp=0 port=0x220 mpu_port=0x388 fm_port=0x330 irq=5 dma1=1 dma2=0 # OSS/Free portion alias char-major-14 soundcore alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0 # card #1 alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
