- How to try to survive an IBM Mwave under Linux SB drivers
-
-
-+ IBM have now released documentation of sorts and Torsten is busy
- trying to make the Mwave work. This is not however a trivial task.
-
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-
-OK, first thing - the IRQ problem IS a problem, whether the test is bypassed or
-not. It is NOT a Linux problem, but an MWAVE problem that is fixed with the
-latest MWAVE patches. So, in other words, don't bypass the test for MWAVES!
-
-I have Windows 95 on /dev/hda1, swap on /dev/hda2, and Red Hat 5 on /dev/hda3.
-
-The steps, then:
-
- Boot to Linux.
- Mount Windows 95 file system (assume mount point = /dos95).
- mkdir /dos95/linux
- mkdir /dos95/linux/boot
- mkdir /dos95/linux/boot/parms
-
- Copy the kernel, any initrd image, and loadlin to /dos95/linux/boot/.
-
- Reboot to Windows 95.
-
- Edit C:/msdos.sys and add or change the following:
-
- Logo=0
- BootGUI=0
-
- Note that msdos.sys is a text file but it needs to be made 'unhidden',
- readable and writable before it can be edited. This can be done with
- DOS' "attrib" command.
-
- Edit config.sys to have multiple config menus. I have one for windows 95 and
- five for Linux, like this:
-------------
-[menu]
-menuitem=W95, Windows 95
-menuitem=LINTP, Linux - ThinkPad
-menuitem=LINTP3, Linux - ThinkPad Console
-menuitem=LINDOC, Linux - Docked
-menuitem=LINDOC3, Linux - Docked Console
-menuitem=LIN1, Linux - Single User Mode
-REM menudefault=W95,10
-
-[W95]
-
-[LINTP]
-
-[LINDOC]
-
-[LINTP3]
-
-[LINDOC3]
-
-[LIN1]
-
-[COMMON]
-FILES=30
-REM Please read README.TXT in C:\MWW subdirectory before changing the DOS= statement.
-DOS=HIGH,UMB
-DEVICE=C:\MWW\MANAGER\MWD50430.EXE
-SHELL=c:\command.com /e:2048
--------------------
-
-The important things are the SHELL and DEVICE statements.
-
- Then change autoexec.bat. Basically everything in there originally should be
- done ONLY when Windows 95 is booted. Then you add new things specifically
- for Linux. Mine is as follows
-
----------------
-@ECHO OFF
-if "%CONFIG%" == "W95" goto W95
-
-REM

-SET MWPATH=C:\MWW\DLL;C:\MWW\MWGAMES;C:\MWW\DSP

-SET LIBPATH=C:\MWW\DLL

-REM If hardware settings are changed, please change this line as well.
-REM See the Mwave README file for instructions.
-SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1

-SET PATH=C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND;E:\ORAWIN95\BIN;f:\msdev\bin;e:\v30\bin.dbg;v:\devt\v30\bin;c:\JavaSDK\Bin;C:\MWW\DLL;
-SET INCLUDE=f:\MSDEV\INCLUDE;F:\MSDEV\MFC\INCLUDE
-SET LIB=F:\MSDEV\LIB;F:\MSDEV\MFC\LIB
-win
-
-------------------------
-
-Now build a file in c:\linux\boot\parms for each Linux config that you have.
-
-For example, my LINDOC3 config is for a docked Thinkpad at runlevel 3 with no
-initrd image, and has a parameter file named LINDOC3.PAR in c:\linux\boot\parms:
-
------------------------
-# LOADLIN @param_file image=other_image root=/dev/other
-#
-# Linux Console in docking station
-#
-c:\linux\boot\zImage.krn # First value must be filename of Linux kernel.
-root=/dev/hda3 # device which gets mounted as root FS
-ro # Other kernel arguments go here.
-apm=off
-doc=yes
-3
------------------------
-
-The doc=yes parameter is an environment variable used by my init scripts, not
-a kernel argument.
-
-However, the apm=off parameter IS a kernel argument! APM, at least in my setup,
-causes the kernel to crash when loaded via loadlin (but NOT when loaded via
-LILO). The APM stuff COULD be forced out of the kernel via the kernel compile
-options. Instead, I got an unofficial patch to the APM drivers that allows them
-to be dynamically deactivated via kernel arguments. Whatever you chose to
-document, APM, it seems, MUST be off for setups like mine.
-
-Now make sure C:\MWW\MWCONFIG.REF looks like this:
-
-----------------------
-[NativeDOS]
-Default=SB1.5
-SBInputSource=CD
-SYNTH=FM
-QSound=OFF
-Reverb=OFF
-Chorus=OFF
-ReverbDepth=5
-ChorusDepth=5
-SBInputVolume=5
-SBMainVolume=10
-SBWaveVolume=10
-SBSynthVolume=10
-WaveTableVolume=10
-AudioPowerDriver=ON
-
-[FastCFG]
-Show=No
-HideOption=Off
------------------------------
-
-OR the Default= line COULD be
-
-Default=SBPRO
-
-Reboot to Windows 95 and choose Linux. When booted, use sndconfig to configure
-the sound modules and voilĂ  - ThinkPad sound with Linux.
-
-Now the gotchas - you can either have CD sound OR Mixers but not both. That's a
-problem with the SB1.5 (CD sound) or SBPRO (Mixers) settings. No one knows why
-this is!
-
-For some reason MPEG3 files, when played through mpg123, sound like they
-are playing at 1/8th speed - not very useful! If you have ANY insight
-on why this second thing might be happening, I would be grateful.
