461[linux-dell-laptops] Sound on Inspiron 7500 ?
- Mar 13, 2000Hello,
Last week I received my Inspiron 7500 600VT. Its brilliant display and
the 12 GB disk make it a real desktop-like machine. I will actually use
it as a portable workstation.
The installation of SuSE 6.3 Linux (kernel 2.2.13) went smoothly.
I didn't figure out yet how to make X-windows run in 1400x1050
resolution, that's a detail for later. In 1200x786 resolution, which is
already great, the configuration of Xfree86 3.3.5 was straightforward
with the SaX program of SuSE.
The only real problem that remains is getting the soundcard work.
It's a ESS Maestro-E2. Dell provides a package (i75alna2.rpm) for this
card on its Support website. I installed it, but it doesn't seem to
Has someone experience with this package ? Or has anyone some other
tips on how to make this soundcard work in Linux ?
