So, I've got an E-MU 1212m PCIE (PCI express) soundcard now. And it doesn't
work. so there are a few questions.
First it's mebeing blid and not familiar with PCIE slots. There are two
cards. Youcan see the product from alsa-project.org or I can give you a direct
link to the manual off-list.
So in my PC I have one full PCI express slot (a long one, almost like a PCI
slot) and I've got a short one. A friend supposed PCIE 1.
there there are two cards a big one, the one with the digital I/O, which I
slotted into the small slot and a small card (the analogue I/O and MIDI I/O),
which I slotted into the long slot. So far so good.
My lspci gives me:
03:00.0 PCI bridge: Pericom Semiconductor Device e111 (rev 02)
04:04.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB0400 Audigy2 Value
I think these two are new, I didn't recognise them and they are right at the
end of the list.
I have compile ALSA modules for everything E-MU/creative labs (10K1, 10K1X,
the dell bit and 20K2). My ALSA version is 1.0.23 and kernel version is 2.6.38
Still ALSA doesn't give any new soundcard.
The two cards are coorectly connected with the IDE-like cable, but not
screwed in. Still they look firm enough.
Any ideas? Would that be the wrong slot for the big card (the main board of
the two, I think)? Or is the ALSA driver not detecting it correctly? Should
lspci show more?
Remember, I can't see myself and the sighted people around me are so NOT
into computers, that they aren't of any help really.
Thanks for a ny good advise!
