differences in the entry: Description
[p]Sound Blaster 16 clone. It [del]It doesn't work even after inserting the required module, it loads and apears to work but there is no sound output. The front plate doesn't have the jacks labeled so i'm not sure which is the speaker one, but one of them produces white noise when plugging. I tested even the CD-in and it still refuses to work. There are some errors on dmesg but I doubt there's a problem with the driver so most likely it's my card the faulty one.[/p] one.[/del][/p]
[p]It works now, not sure if the updated kernel or a setting made a difference. Like the rest of the ISA cards the module has to be modprobed
[code]modprobe snd-cmi8330[/code] is this case. Fabrication year from the sticker on the back of it shows 2002/9. [/p]
