Sound card initialization error

When booting I get the following messages...
 Sound initialization started
 sb: Interrupt test on IRQ5 failed - device disabled
 <Yamaha OPL3 FM> at 0x388
The sound card that I have is AZTECH AZT2316R that came with 2 diskettes labelled MM PRO 16 IIA-3D EP, with no manual :(
I have gened the kernel for Sound Blaster compatibility. The sound card works fine under DOS, and works ok under Linux if DOS initializes the sound card before I boot Linux. The SOUND HOW-TO indicates an incorrect driver has been used. Anyone know which driver to use with this card? Thanks.

it seems like your sound card is plugn'play. In order to use it, you must configure it at boot time. You can try to use pnp configuration utility for linux. Look at : http://www.redhat.com/linux-info/pnp/software.html

jprohart - the card is not pnp. I have the jumpers set at the standard settings. I guess this is why DOS dosen't have any problems.

try the cs4232 driver, i think (and hope ) it will work. Otherwise, boot your machine from dos (with the card configuration utility) and then boot linux with loadlin. In last extremity, this wiil solve your problem.
