Sound Cards on WikiLearn

To add additional pages on specific sound cards or sound chipsets, simply create a new page using a name prefixed with "Sndcd"...

Note: The following list might not include all pages related to sound cards because it searches only for pages with a prefix of Sndcd.

  • Page Title: Summary

  • SndcdAztechGalaxyWashington: This is an interesting sound card because it includes a modem (not sure of the speed of the modem). These are the setup parameters used in Windows for this card (or...

  • SndcdSis7018: Notes and resources for the Sis7018 sound card / chip, possibly part of the Sis630, Sis730, and Sis735 chipsets. See AboutThesePages. Contents Notes Resources...

  • SndcdYamahaOpl3Sax: We`ve found a fair number of sound cards using the Yamaha opl3 sax chipset while setting up ComputersForKids but often cannot successfully install them in Vector Linux...


See ResourceRecommendations. Feel free to add additional resources to these lists, but please follow the guidelines on ResourceRecommendations including ResourceRecommendations#Guidelines_for_Rating_Resources.

Recommended for Specific Needs

  • (rhk) Troubleshooting Sound Cards under GNU/Linux: Version 1.0; on LinuxOrbit, viewed around June, 2002 -- starts out sort of slow, but based on other articles on LinuxOrbit, I suspect it will be useful. Swiftly gets to how to view the log of the last boot using dmesg, and some things to look for. (May be a little confused in describing the Via SouthBridge as the sound card ("I knew that my audio was a Via SouthBridge"), but I suspect that's just a minor oversight.)
  • AlsaOpensrcOrg — I've only glanced at this, but just based on the first page, it deals with a lot of sound cards and probably other things — now if I could just remember: is ALSA the sound system that seems to be becoming the standard, or is it some other system? (I guess I saw something somewhere recently about one of the sound systems, either it was being adopted as the standard by KDE, or maybe the kernel (??!), or ??)
  • (rhk) The Mandrake Audio Workstation HowTo; Austin Acton; — "On the eve of Mandrake's latest release, Austin Acton has published a guide to create a digital audio workstation using Mandrake 9.1. This 'HowTo' describes how to set up a professional quality audio workstation in an afternoon or less without compiling or text editing . . ." — DNWTWOW (Does Not Wrap to Width of Window)

starting to make up a (mnemonic) tag to mark articles that I notice do not wrap to the width of my window (i.e., require horizontal scrolling) (clearly, I won't notice all of them, and am just starting this (campaign") — candidates:

  • DNWTWOW (Does Not Wrap to Width of Window)
  • DNW (Does Not Wrap (to width of window))
  • RHS (Requires Horizontal Scrolling)

The meaning of full duplex for sound cards (basically, it's just like the meaning for anything else, the ability to send and receive at the same time:

Recommended by Others

  • (rhk) Linux Laptop Sound Configuration; Dave Phillips; 09/20/2002 -- not read, but I suspect it's a useful article -- starts out matter-of-factly mentioning that "Configuring sound for laptops running Linux can be a very tricky process".
