I have QNX running on a Dell Latitude CPi A400XT Notebook (P2 400, 256MB,
20GB) with a NeoMagic 256 audio/ video combo card (all CPi’s come with the
NeoMagic 256 audio/ video combo card).
I’m not getting any audio, altho QNX found the right driver for the
adapter. Anybody have any idea how to get the sound running?
Neomagics (and all other laptop audio chips) can be a little finicky
and all seem to have an infinite number of ways that they can be
wired in. With that in mind, it may or may not be possible to get
the driver running without code changes (I can’t be certain because
we have never had that particular laptop in-house)
However, it does work very well on all the ones that we have seen, so
The name of the driver for the Neomagic 256 is deva-ctrl-nmg6.so, or
nmg6. It should have been automatically started by the enumerators
at boot-time. If it didn’t (“ls /dev/snd” and “pidin | grep io-audio”
do not show anything) you can try to run it on the commandline
with the following commands (must be running as root):
io-audio -dnmg6 &
If the enumerators didn’t work, odds are that will fail too. If it
does you can check for error messages in slogger with:
sloginfo | less
Or save the slogger information to a file with:
sloginfo > filename.txt
Please post the slogger info and your machine’s PCI profile:
pci -vvv | less
You can save it to a file with:
pci -vvv > filename2.txt
p.s. This is not the best news group for you to have posted you
question in. It is highly unlikely that you are having application
problems. I will answer your question here for now, but it will
improve your response time if you post in an appropriate group.
