I don't know whether or not you specified the sound module settings in
the lts.conf file, but I have at least 50 of the GX1's in our building
working with sound and if you use this setting it might work. I have
some terminals that auto configure, but most of my equipment is so old,
it has to be specified in the lts.conf file:
This is the sound configuration for the default lts.conf settings at the
beginning of the file:
# enable sound by default
SOUND = Y
# choose either esd or nasd to be the default
# SOUND_DAEMON = "nasd"
SOUND_DAEMON = "esd"
# default sound volume
VOLUME = 100
### For ISA sound cards, you have to specify the module to use:
# SMODULE_01 = "sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1"
Then I have to specify the sound module for each GX1 because it cannot
auto configure like the newer machines:
SMODULE_01="cs4232 io=0x534 irq=5 dma=1"
Hope this helps.
