Soundcards for Haiku in 2024

It does work in Windows XP, yeah. The drivers provided for it on that website work out of the box. Its just Haiku that doesnt like it.

The onboard or the add-in?

The add-in I’d write off. Haiku hasn’t got a driver and neither does Opensound it seems.

If the onboard is working there, can you find the device IDs from Device Manager? This is on 10, but this is similar back to 2000

In this case, the sound card is 0x10ec 0x0287 which is a Realtek HDA card (possibly the same one as that board as, even though this is a 2022 laptop).

I’ll have to get back to you on that- I’d need to reinstall Windows to it. I can do that on a different harddrive but it takes a while.

From Arsock´s site description
“- 7.1 CH Windows® Vista™ Premium Level HD Audio (ALC888 Audio Codec)” . From the picture, cannot read the markings of the possible chips ( the long one, near the green front audio connector, and the small Realtek one, near the last ( bottom ) pci slot.

Do you mean the Soundblaster Live! doesn’t work in the latest Haiku release?

It is working great!

Well, it appears to be somewhat compatible with the Sound Blaster 16 but over PCI instead of ISA.

There is documentation: https://www.dosdays.co.uk/media/avancelogic/ALS-Datasheets+Manuals/ALS4000A.PDF

And there is a driver from FreeBSD: Cross Reference: /freebsd-current/sys/dev/sound/pci/als4000.c

It makes me wonder if our compatibility layer for FreeBSD may be usable for soundcards as well as network cards?
