I am trying an old ISA Sound Blaster sound card (CT4520) with Fedora 7, but I am not having any luck. I am fairly new to Linux, but I was able to get the same card working with Fedora 5. I installed isapnptools, created an isapnp.conf file, and installed the ALSA driver to support it, but I still can't get the computer to detect it.
Here is a portion of my dmesg log where isapnp kicks in:
isapnp: Scanning for PnP cards...
pnp: SB audio device quirk - increasing port range
pnp: AWE32 quirk - adding two ports
isapnp: Card 'Creative SB AWE64 PnP'
isapnp: 1 Plug & Play card detected total
Generic RTC Driver v1.07
In the isapnp.conf there is a conflict between the IRQ for the game port and the processor, but I wasn't sure if it is necessary to enable IRQ for the game port since I don't plan to use it.
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device
and the volume control in gnome complains that it can't find the file.
I am not sure where to go from here; hopfully somebody out there has an idea.
