I assume XFree86-4.0.2 works, and your on to new problems?, yes i have
seen what you see, did you use mixerctl -a to view what's up?
turn 'on' what is 'off' with micerctl -w command ?
The ISA card ess is 8bit and thats probably why you can not use it.
try cat sound.au > /dev/audio and it probably works. You won't be able
to use that ISA card es1186/78/88 in 'ogle' you need 16 bit 48KHZ
supported PCI card like a low cost Esoniq sb (eap0 card). mpg123 will
work fine with this card as well.
