nm 256 on Omnibook 4150 working in puppy linux 2.16
I did get sound working in the omnibook 4150 I found 3 drivers that will work to varying degrees the CS4232(one I chose) the cs4231 work relativly well,sound is softer than in Windows and you get cheated out of a master volume bar. I also got it to configure with a SB 8 analog driver but the output volume was terribly soft. For all these i ran the alsa config Utility built into puppy 2.16 seamonkey. Sometimes you do have to run the wizard a couple of times before it sees the card.
I then pasted these lines at the end of modules.conf
alias snd-card-0 snd-cs4232
alias sound-slot-0 snd-cs4232
options snd-cs4232 port=0x534 cport=0x538 mpu_port=-1 fm_port=0x388 irq=5 dma1=1 dma2=0 isapnp=0
and also replaced the alsa output in modprobe.conf with the same lines as it did not see the MPU port or FM port setting when it configured it.
