There's a range of Creative Labs/E-MU sound cards supported by the snd-emu10k1 ALSA driver already in Puppy,
but several of these cards require firmware as well. I'm uncertain about all the models involved, but certainly the well-known E-MU 0404 PCI card requires this firmware.

Note: the E-MU 0404 USB is a completely different animal, which uses the generic snd-usb-audio ALSA driver.

After installing this dotpet, reboot. Then run the ALSA Wizard.


Hi all, this is my first post on the forum. Looks like I have a problem configuring Creative sound card. After initial setup, Retrovol tray icon and menu entry both disappeared. I'm new to Linux but i guess it's related to this script (/root/startup):

#!/bin/sh

#exec retrovol -hide ${BGOPT} #BGOPT is exported from /usr/sbin/delayedrun.

#retrovol 0.10, -bg option no longer needed...
exec retrovol -hide

Experienced advice would be much appreciated. Cheers!

Edit: Excuse me for posting in this topic but I couldn't find much in other (ancient) threads. My PC runs Puppy Precise 5.7.1. (Kernel 3.9.11, PAE, i686), Frugal install on HDD.

Edit 2: Disabling onboard sound within BIOS solved my problem. Wink

Here is the USB 3.0 Linux driver, which was not enabled in the standard Puppy 5.1.x kernel.
The driver is called xhci
I have also included the upgraded isp1760 USB driver, which is apparently USB 3.0 compatible, though very few Puppy users will ever use this driver because the relevant interface is found on embedded devices.
After installing this dotpet, reboot, and the xhci driver should automatically load for any compatible interface detected at boot up.


Got it and it worked on install of my AMD64 machine running Tahr 64 but after the first reboot it didn't work. If I modinfro it doesn't appear. *Also it seems to have installed in an older Linux versions subdirectory. dmsg reports finding the PCI card fine.

dmsg starts signaling errors after finding the hardware.
xhci_hcd 0000:01:00.0: Timeout while waiting for setup address command
xhci_hcd 0000:01:00.0: Stopped the command ring failed, maybe the host is dead

and these...
Abort command ring failed
HC died; cleaning up
Timeout while waiting for setup address command
Abort the command ring, but the xHCI is dead

Should I be trying to add this to the drivers that Puppy installs? *And what is the proper way to do that? Or is this a 32 versus 64 bit problem? Any help super most appreciated.

Compatibility, or otherwise, of the drivers posted in this forum thread can be seen from the title of the thread, but for a clearer explanation, please read the very first sentence in the very first post -
