Multimedia :: Got sound working on Toshiba laptop

Yes 10st, you just need to place this line in your /opt/
modprobe opl3sa2 io=0x370 mss_io=0x530 mpu_io=0x330 irq=5 dma=1 dma2=0, then save it. If you are using the bootable cd, make sure to backup your settings to a thumb drive or some other disk partition. If its a hard drive install it should work on reboot. You don't know how hard I looked for this very information about a year ago, and I found here in these forums.

Thanks, that worked for my laptop too :-)
