This allowed for a much wider selection of, and longer playing, samples. BySound Blaster cards had sold over 15 million units worldwide and accounted for seven out of ten sound card sales.

See full activity log. Products introduced in Revolvy Brain revolvybrain. I only had to do ocerview ‘sudo killall pulseaudio’ instead of ‘killall pulseaudio’. Note that when you boot up with that option, your system will of course think that it only has 2GB of RAM. There are no kernel messages related to this, and I don’t feel like debugging the kernel right now. This patch is against Linus’s git branch and probably doesn’t work, but is useful to bookmark some iverview the places where changes have to be made.

No upgrade log present probably fresh install dmi. I’d say the problem should really fixed at its origin. The granularity offered by the kernel is too small – there is either the 64 bit space which is not reachable by PCI anyhowthen the 4GB space, still too large for the emu10k1, and then the 16MB ISA space, which is reachable, but too small to be useful.


I tried the patch and it works great though I can’t seem to get the other patch to work to increase the limit to 2gb for soundfontsit’s just really inconvenient to recompile the kernel and now after initially compiling it, it doesn’t want to compile again and complains about a signing key.


Still, isn’t it quite an achievement that we can still use a soundcard that has been released ages ago? Phones by Jessica Dolcourt Dec 10, It may be a transient hardware problem? We delete comments that violate our policywhich we encourage you to read.

Sunday, March 29, 6: Having a hardware bug in the emu10k1, the hardware can only support DMA from the lowest 2GB of memory because it simply ignores bit 31 of the address. The original Sound Blaster Live!

For all others that just want to have a working sound blaster and don’t care about arguing with the kernel hackers, a patch is here, even instructions how to apply it thanks to Jakob.

List the ports available for sending and receiving as well as their connection status with aconnect -il or aconnect -ol. I had the same behaviour, so I don’t think it’s a misconfiguration or it’s on both systems. Default value is Creative Labs SB Audi See 10 on this list.

For comment 13, I can’t try digital capture as I don’t have digital devices anymore for input. This means that some non-broken devices will require to allocate pages in the 2GB region bad enoughand the memory layout might be sub-optimal for those devices, but at least the hack will work.

It also included higher quality sound output at all levels, quadrophonic output, and a new MIDI synthesizer with 64 sampled voices. Creative Labs SB Audigy rev 03 See oferview document for currently supported Ubuntu releases: Suitable sound font files are available on the driver CD of your sound card.

Instead, the kernel should provide means to allocate memory with more flexible constraints than just the DMA zones that exist now. The first column lists the internal port numbers by which the device is addressed by the ALSA driver. Creative acquired Ensoniq in and, as part of the deal, made use of this highly-compatible ISA sound card emulator with their newer cards. This rate-conversion step introduced intermodulation distortion into the downsampled output.

Second, fixing the issue requires a deeper modification of the kernel, namely providing a more flexible memory allocation, or more DMA zones.
