Setting Sound card Crystal Sound Fusion 46xx on ThinkPad A20m for RedHat
6.2 Kernel 2.2.14-5.0
I received the ThinkPad with Win98 Installed.
Did the following
Followed the instructions given on page
Excellent instructions these.
Also looked at HOWTO
No sense chancing it without reading this first.
Now quick read the following...
These are only the problems I had. May not be the same for you.
Copy "conf.modules" to "modules.conf" don't use "conf.modules"
On next boot Linux will complain.
Do as it says or ignore sound card will be installed.
It seems RedHat 6.2 kernel 2.2.14-5.0 does not like conf.modules and
uses modules.conf instead
Card on my system still did not work because volumes on ALSA driver were
To unmute(activate) master volume "amixer set Master unmute" (you must
have installed and compiled the utilties source package from the ALSA
To unmute PCM (needed to play wave and most other files) "amixer set PCM
The rest I guess you can figure
Eg. Type # amixer set PCM unmute
The driver is snd-driver-cs461x
Linux Kernel Release 2.2.14-5.0
Linux will give a very detail explanation of what to do about the
modules.conf and conf .modules file when you boot up.
I looked at the squeak page today and was impressed. Is anyone using
this for music programming? If so, are there any good examples/code
libraries? How does it compare to, say, SuperCollider? (Or is it worth
it to just wait for a SuperCollider Linux port?)

I am getting closer to purchasing some hardware to integrate my home studio, and basically base it around, Linux. I have been looking at the ALSA drivers and need to determine what hardware to get so that I can do some mutli-track recording.
Midiman's Delta 1010 looks good, but as I already have an ADAT, I was wondering if the ADAT/PCR card would do the trick to get info to/from the tape, so that I could work on it in the computer and then send it all back as 8 channels?
Has anyone used this setup before, and can they recommend it or advise against it?
We tried some serial interfaces a while ago but there was a hack with
the serial port module and therefore decided to abandon the idea in
favor of USB.
Both Midiman midisports work but the midisport uno doesn't work. We need
to guess the firmware for that one also. The Edirol interfaces are very
hard to get.
BTW: it seems that midi is part of snd-usb-audio in ALSA now, thanks
Emiliano for pointing that out.
