I assume from your link that you are seeing the
“Geode Native Driver not supported” message in
your sloginfo output?
The QNX geode native audio driver requires some
very specific BIOS updates that your board
doesn’t have. To my knowledge, they are not
available in a form that an end user in the
field might be able to use. If you are a
systems integrator (or equivalent), you might
try asking up your chain for BIOS support for
audio in QNX. If not, you are probably
out-of-luck so far as native geode audio is
However, there is another option. The geode is
SB-16 compatible. To use it in this mode, you
use the soundblaster driver instead. The
soundblaster driver must be configured manually
with base I/O address (ex. 0x220), IRQ (ex. 5),
and two DMA channels (ex. 1, 5). You should be
able to discover/configure these settings in your
geode’s BIOS. If your BIOS is configured with the
settings that I showed above, the command would
be as follows:
io-audio -dsb ioport=220,irq=5,dma=1,dma1=5 &
Note: the driver options (the block after the “sb”) cannot
contain any spaces. This is similar to io-net’s driver options.

I’m using "io-audio -dgeode & " => without effect.
For test I follow the Answer from :

Any Idea ?
