Mine usually blows up when I do a bunch of 'recommended' OSS edits to modules.conf.
I have removed all references to sound in that file, turned the machine
off, removed the card, restarted the machine, (so it is recorded as
removed), shutdown again, re-installed the card, and rebooted. Voila! It
works as hwconf puts what it needs into modules.conf. Be careful what
you add to modules.conf... sometimes all that OSS stuff isn't necessary.
Make sure your mixer is set correctly. Ric



Putting anything related to OSS into your system's config files is
silly. OSS has been deprecated for as long as the 2.6 kernels have
been in use (FC2, I believe.) The AWE32 is SB16 compatible, so as long
as the kernel has ISA and SB16 support in ALSA, it should work. It
might also need isapnp support.
