I am running Caldera Openlinux 2.3 with the latest stable kernel (2.2.14) and KDE 1.12

my hardware includes a soundblaster AWE64 Pnp card that I cant get working for the life of me.

My question is: how to set up the soundcard without using modules or OSS.

You have the same sound card I have.
I had no problem installing it by running setup from the command line (not in the graphic interface) and using the setup sound card that's there.

Hi,
Without using oss modules you can get awe64 pnp card working in 16bit.

In your bios put isa/pnp os installed to "no"
Then in linux modprobe sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1
should get the card working.
The values here are only examples. Check the values in windows

that would be a nice smile but I have to run things without modules. I will however try the bios setting and see what I get.

 either one of the following three:

1) Migrating Modules into the kernel by recompiling: This is very hard, although it will run your SB well and you will get a faster booting performance.

2) Configuring Loadable Modules: This is what all people choose, just run '# sndconfig'.

3) Using that way smile stated in the first place, i never tried it, but it will be a crime to hear 2pac with 16 bit.

 Choose The Second One, this is what i do, sndconfig will setup your SB64 in seconds.

rex007 meant, when you are at the command prompt, just type "setup", this will bring up a utility to setup the sound card (amongst others), you will notice that it also has a utility to setup X...
