Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!

+================================================================
+ INSTALLATION OF AWE32 SOUND DRIVER FOR LINUX
+ Takashi Iwai <iwai@ww.uni-erlangen.de>
+================================================================
+
+----------------------------------------------------------------
+* Attention to SB-PnP Card Users
+
+If you're using PnP cards, the initialization of PnP is required
+before loading this driver. You have now three options:
+ 1. Use isapnptools.
+ 2. Use in-kernel isapnp support.
+ 3. Initialize PnP on DOS/Windows, then boot linux by loadlin.
+In this document, only the case 1 case is treated.
+
+----------------------------------------------------------------
+* Installation on Red Hat 5.0 Sound Driver
+
+Please use install-rh.sh under RedHat5.0 directory.
+DO NOT USE install.sh below.
+See INSTALL.RH for more details.
+
+----------------------------------------------------------------
+* Installation/Update by Shell Script
+
+ 1. Become root
+
+ % su
+
+ 2. If you have never configured the kernel tree yet, run make config
+ once (to make dependencies and symlinks).
+
+ # cd /usr/src/linux
+ # make xconfig
+
+ 3. Run install.sh script
+
+ # sh ./install.sh
+
+ 4. Configure your kernel
+
+ (for Linux 2.[01].x user)
+ # cd /usr/src/linux
+ # make xconfig (or make menuconfig)
+
+ (for Linux 1.2.x user)
+ # cd /usr/src/linux
+ # make config
+
+ Answer YES to both "lowlevel drivers" and "AWE32 wave synth" items
+ in Sound menu. ("lowlevel drivers" will appear only in 2.x
+ kernel.)
+
+ 5. Make your kernel (and modules), and install them as usual.
+
+ 5a. make kernel image
+ # make zImage
+
+ 5b. make modules and install them
+ # make modules && make modules_install
+
+ 5c. If you're using lilo, copy the kernel image and run lilo.
+ Otherwise, copy the kernel image to suitable directory or
+ media for your system.
+
+ 6. Reboot the kernel if necessary.
+ - If you updated only the modules, you don't have to reboot
+ the system. Just remove the old sound modules here.
+ in
+ # rmmod sound.o (linux-2.0 or OSS/Free)
+ # rmmod awe_wave.o (linux-2.1)
+
+ 7. If your AWE card is a PnP and not initialized yet, you'll have to
+ do it by isapnp tools. Otherwise, skip to 8.
+
+ This section described only a brief explanation. For more
+ details, please see the AWE64-Mini-HOWTO or isapnp tools FAQ.
+
+ 7a. If you have no isapnp.conf file, generate it by pnpdump.
+ Otherwise, skip to 7d.
+ # pnpdump > /etc/isapnp.conf
+
+ 7b. Edit isapnp.conf file. Comment out the appropriate
+ lines containing desirable I/O ports, DMA and IRQs.
+ Don't forget to enable (ACT Y) line.
+
+ 7c. Add two i/o ports (0xA20 and 0xE20) in WaveTable part.
+ ex)
+ (CONFIGURE CTL0048/58128 (LD 2
+ # ANSI string -->WaveTable<--
+ (IO 0 (BASE 0x0620))
+ (IO 1 (BASE 0x0A20))
+ (IO 2 (BASE 0x0E20))
+ (ACT Y)
+ ))
+
+ 7d. Load the config file.
+ CAUTION: This will reset all PnP cards!
+
+ # isapnp /etc/isapnp.conf
+
+ 8. Load the sound module (if you configured it as a module):
+
+ for 2.0 kernel or OSS/Free monolithic module:
+
+ # modprobe sound.o
+
+ for 2.1 kernel:
+
+ # modprobe sound
+ # insmod uart401
+ # insmod sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330
+ (These values depend on your settings.)
+ # insmod awe_wave
+ (Be sure to load awe_wave after sb!)
+
+ See Documentation/sound/oss/AWE32 for
+ more details.
+
+ 9. (only for obsolete systems) If you don't have /dev/sequencer
+ device file, make it according to Readme.linux file on
+ /usr/src/linux/drivers/sound. (Run a shell script included in
+ that file). <-- This file no longer exists in the recent kernels!
+
+ 10. OK, load your own soundfont file, and enjoy MIDI!
+
+ % sfxload synthgm.sbk
+ % drvmidi foo.mid
+
+ 11. For more advanced use (eg. dynamic loading, virtual bank and
+ etc.), please read the awedrv FAQ or the instructions in awesfx
+ and awemidi packages.
+
+Good luck!
