Any way of getting audio to work on modern hardware?

Post by Panopticom » Fri Nov 30, 2018 3:44 am

It seems that ROS does not support any modern HD audio right now? Driver installation got stuck at 100% CPU load when trying to install drivers on my ThinkPad T430(s).

Is there any known way to get audio? I did get it to run on my old ThinkPad T23 with the Windows drivers but that is a vintage system.

I am talking about a laptop (T410 or T430(s)) so it would have to be a usb device using vgal's usb-patches.

Audio support is still experimental and can cause bugs, so you better try it out on a VM.

AC97 sort of works, HD audio does not as you already realized by testing. So right now your only way is a VM emulating you a AC97 device. Audio is not top priority right now I fear.

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

It is surprisingly difficult to find an older USB AC97 sound card, maybe these were never produced bc that technology was on every board?

However I did find this, maybe I should give it a try :D

Edit: might be same as this:

Drivers not needed from Win98SE to Vista indicates AC97 instead of HDaudio

My newest computer with AC97 is a ThinkPad T43p from 2005 with a single core Pentium-M, already a vintage machine. The following T60 had HD audio.

So I have ordered one of these USB audio cards for 1.5€ from China, let's see how that works out :D

I doubt that it will work due to isochronous transfer support missing in usb host drivers (usbehci / usbohci / usbuhci) and missing stream pointer api in ks
