I recently got a Soundblaster AWE64. I applied the patch posted here
recently by email@example.com, and put it in my config file thus:
isapnp0 at isa?
sb* at isapnp?
joy* at isapnp?
Now this sort of works...the card is detected, the joystick works, and
high DMA works (I tested this by installing the FreeBSD realaudio
Under DOS, I discovered that low DMA wasn't working for some reason
when the drq was set to 1. I fixed this in DOS by running the CTCU
program that came with the card...I selected Configuration 1 instead
of 0, and changed the Low DMA to drq 0. All is well under DOS... but
under NetBSD I get:
isapnp0 at isa0 port 0x279: read port 0x207
sb0 at isapnp0 port 0x220/16,0x330/2,0x388/4 irq 5 drq 1,5
...and Low DMA audio doesn't work because the drq selected by isapnp
I tried changing the config entry to:
sb* at isapnp? drq 0,5
but that just gave me a syntax error. Is there a "right" way to do
this, or am I just encountering a bug?
