  • Option: RADIO_CADET
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) ADS Cadet AM/FM Tuner
    • depends on ISA && VIDEO_DEV
      Choose Y here if you have one of these AM/FM radio cards, and then fill in the port address below.
      In order to control your radio card, you will need to use programs that are compatible with the Video For Linux API. Information on this API and pointers to "v4l" programs may be found at <file:Documentation/video4linux/API.html>.
      Further documentation on this driver can be found on the WWW at <http://linux.blackhawke.net/cadet/>.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called radio-cadet.

      Choose Y here if you have one of these FM radio cards, and then fill in the port address below.
      Note that newer AIMSlab RadioTrack cards have a different chipset and are not supported by this driver. For these cards, use the RadioTrack II driver below.
      If you have a GemTeks combined (PnP) sound- and radio card you must use this driver as a module and setup the card with isapnptools. You must also pass the module a suitable io parameter, 0x248 has been reported to be used by these cards.
      In order to control your radio card, you will need to use programs that are compatible with the Video For Linux API. Information on this API and pointers to "v4l" programs may be found at <file:Documentation/video4linux/API.html>. More information is contained in the file <file:Documentation/video4linux/radiotrack.txt>.

    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) miroSOUND PCM20 radio
    • depends on ISA && VIDEO_DEV && SOUND_ACI_MIXER
      Choose Y here if you have this FM radio card. You also need to say Y to "ACI mixer (miroSOUND PCM1-pro/PCM12/PCM20 radio)" (in "Sound") for this to work.
      In order to control your radio card, you will need to use programs that are compatible with the Video For Linux API. Information on this API and pointers to "v4l" programs may be found at <file:Documentation/video4linux/API.html>.

      In order to control your radio card, you will need to use programs that are compatible with the Video For Linux API. Information on this API and pointers to "v4l" programs may be found at <file:Documentation/video4linux/API.html>.

      Choose Y here if you have this FM radio card, and then fill in the port address below. (TODO)
      Note: This driver is in its early stages. Right now volume and frequency control and muting works at least for me, but unfortunately I have not found anybody who wants to use this card with Linux. So if it is this what YOU are trying to do right now, PLEASE DROP ME A NOTE!! Rolf Offermanns <rolf@offermanns.de>.
      In order to control your radio card, you will need to use programs that are compatible with the Video For Linux API. Information on this API and pointers to "v4l" programs may be found at <file:Documentation/video4linux/API.html>.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called radio-terratec.

    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"Terratec i/o port (normally 0x590)"

    • depends on RADIO_TERRATEC=y
    • default "590"
      Fill in the I/O port of your TerraTec FM radio card. If unsure, go with the default.


  • Option: RADIO_TRUST
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Trust FM radio card
    • depends on ISA && VIDEO_DEV
      This is a driver for the Trust FM radio cards. Say Y if you have such a card and want to use it under Linux.

    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Support for /proc/radio-typhoon
    • depends on PROC_FS && RADIO_TYPHOON
      Say Y here if you want the typhoon radio card driver to write status information (frequency, volume, muted, mute frequency, base address) to /proc/radio-typhoon. The file can be viewed with your favorite pager (i.e. use "more /proc/radio-typhoon" or "less /proc/radio-typhoon" or simply "cat /proc/radio-typhoon").


  • Option: RADIO_TYPHOON_PORT
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"Typhoon I/O port (0x316 or 0x336)"

"Typhoon frequency set when muting the device (kHz)"

    • depends on RADIO_TYPHOON=y
    • default "87500"
      Enter the frequency used for muting the radio. The device is never completely silent. If the volume is just turned down, you can still hear silent voices and music. For that reason, the frequency of the radio device is set to the frequency you can enter here whenever the device is muted. There should be no local radio station at that frequency.

    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"ZOLTRIX I/O port (0x20c or 0x30c)"

    • depends on RADIO_ZOLTRIX=y
