driver sb16 on vmware 5.5 doesn't work

The driver is not included in the image by default. If you change the vmware configuration file (.vmx) by setting

sound.virtualDev = "sb16"

vmware should emulate a soundblaster16 device. BeOS R5 uses its sb16 when tested with vmware. On Haiku the device is published under /dev but there are no input/output nodes.

Owner: changed from korli to ithamar

Reassigning to ithamar since this driver was done by him.

This is currently blocked by non-working EISA PNP support. Unless there is a _lot_ interest in getting this and simular things working, it will not have my highest priority (that'll go to support more recent hardware).

While I can understand the desire for ISA support in Haiku - at least in vmware's case you can switch the emulated sound chip to "es1371" instead which is a pci-based chipset but currently only supported in Haiku via OpenSound AFAIK.
