Driver for (E)ISA Soundcard with YMF719E-S 9749 ZAGA chip
 
I got an old computer and from there I picked up EISA Soundcard with
YMF719E-S 9749 ZAGA chip. I would like to use it on my working computer
under Lenny. When I plug it in and restart this are messages that
I see in dmesg:
[ 3.618010] isapnp: Scanning for PnP cards...
[ 3.714847] 01:01: card 'OPL3-SAX Sound Board'
[ 3.714868] isapnp: 1 Plug & Play card detected total
...

[ 28.564780] gameport: NS558 PnP Gameport is pnp01:01.01/gameport0, io 0x201, speed 755kHz

[ 34.511445] snd-opl3sa2-pnpbios 01:01.00: disabled
[ 34.511482] snd-opl3sa2-pnpbios: probe of 01:01.00 failed with error -2
[ 34.515095] snd-opl3sa2-cpnp 01:01.00: activated

It seems that snd-opl3sa2 driver is trying to be used but unsuccesful
soundcard does not work. Is this chip supported under some driver with Debian?

Thanks
Martin

Now I read this but it did not helped me.
I added aliases to file /etc/modprobe.d/aliases ( there is no
/etc/modules.conf nor /etc/conf.modules ):

### FOR YMF179
# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-opl3-sa2
# module options should go here

# 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



Unfortunately no noticable change has happened.
Soundcard does not produce any sound.
Driver is loaded (with or without the changes to /etc/modprobe.d/aliases).
I checked with alsamixer and aumix and sound is not mute there. I can
add and reduce volume but it has no effect on producing sound.

Hi, ( not sure at all if this is going to help )

Look at this:
{ from:
http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/sound/alsa/ALSAConfiguration.txt
}

{
Module snd-opl3sa2
------------------

Module for Yamaha OPL3-SA2/SA3 sound cards.

isapnp - ISA PnP detection - 0 = disable, 1 = enable (default)

with isapnp=0, the following options are available:

port - control port # for OPL3-SA chip (0x370)
sb_port - SB port # for OPL3-SA chip (0x220,0x240)
wss_port - WSS port # for OPL3-SA chip (0x530,0xe80,0xf40,0x604)
midi_port - port # for MPU-401 UART (0x300,0x330), -1 = disable
fm_port - FM port # for OPL3-SA chip (0x388), -1 = disable
irq - IRQ # for OPL3-SA chip (5,7,9,10)
dma1 - first DMA # for Yamaha OPL3-SA chip (0,1,3)
dma2 - second DMA # for Yamaha OPL3-SA chip (0,1,3), -1 = disable

This module supports multiple cards and ISA PnP. It does not support
autoprobe (if ISA PnP is not used) thus all ports must be specified!!!

The power-management is supported.

}-------------------

You can make a file in /etc/modprobe.d/ with a name like opl.conf ( the
name does not matter, but it must end in .conf )


in it:

options opl3sa2 isapnp=0 port=... etc.

Again, not sure, just trying, I do not have a card like that myself.
Look in dmesg to see what is happening
Look in /proc/interrupts to see if the card is 'alive', by the number of
irq's changing.
