-Information about Audio Excel DSP 16 driver can be found in the source
-file aedsp16.c
-Please, read the head of the source before using it. It contain useful
-The Audio Excel configuration, is now done with the standard Linux setup.
-You have to configure the sound card (Sound Blaster or Microsoft Sound System)
-and, if you want it, the Roland MPU-401 (do not use the Sound Blaster MPU-401,
-SB-MPU401) in the main driver menu. Activate the lowlevel drivers then select
-the Audio Excel hardware that you want to initialize. Check the IRQ/DMA/MIRQ
-of the Audio Excel initialization: it must be the same as the SBPRO (or MSS)
-setup. If the parameters are different, correct it.
-I you own a Gallant's audio card based on SC-6600, activate the SC-6600 support.
-If you want to change the configuration of the sound board, be sure to
-check off all the configuration items before re-configure it.
-Module parameters
-To use this driver as a module, you must configure some module parameters, to
-set up I/O addresses, IRQ lines and DMA channels. Some parameters are
-mandatory while some others are optional. Here a list of parameters you can
-use with this module:
-Name Description
-==== ===========
-io I/O base address (0x220 or 0x240)
-irq irq line (5, 7, 9, 10 or 11)
-dma dma channel (0, 1 or 3)
-mss_base I/O base address for activate MSS mode (default SBPRO)
- (0x530 or 0xE80)
-mpu_base I/O base address for activate MPU-401 mode
- (0x300, 0x310, 0x320 or 0x330)
-mpu_irq MPU-401 irq line (5, 7, 9, 10 or 0)
-A configuration file in /etc/modprobe.d/ directory will have lines like this:
-options opl3 io=0x388
-options ad1848 io=0x530 irq=11 dma=3
-options aedsp16 io=0x220 irq=11 dma=3 mss_base=0x530
-Where the aedsp16 options are the options for this driver while opl3 and
-ad1848 are the corresponding options for the MSS and OPL3 modules.
-Loading MSS and OPL3 needs to pre load the aedsp16 module to set up correctly
-the sound card. Installation dependencies must be written in configuration
-files under /etc/modprobe.d/ directory:
-softdep ad1848 pre: aedsp16
-softdep opl3 pre: aedsp16
-Then you must load the sound modules stack in this order:
-sound -> aedsp16 -> [ ad1848, opl3 ]
-With the above configuration, loading ad1848 or opl3 modules, will
-automatically load all the sound stack.
-Sound cards supported
-This driver supports the SC-6000 and SC-6600 based Gallant's sound card.
-It don't support the Audio Excel DSP 16 III (try the SC-6600 code).
-I'm working on the III version of the card: if someone have useful
-information about it, please let me know.
-For all the non-supported audio cards, you have to boot MS-DOS (or WIN95)
-activating the audio card with the MS-DOS device driver, then you have to
-<ctrl>-<alt>-<del> and boot Linux.
-Follow these steps:
-1) Compile Linux kernel with standard sound driver, using the emulation
- you want, with the parameters of your audio card,
- e.g. Microsoft Sound System irq10 dma3
-2) Install your new kernel as the default boot kernel.
-3) Boot MS-DOS and configure the audio card with the boot time device
- driver, for MSS irq10 dma3 in our example.
-4) <ctrl>-<alt>-<del> and boot Linux. This will maintain the DOS configuration
- and will boot the new kernel with sound driver. The sound driver will find
- the audio card and will recognize and attach it.
