Somewhere between compiling Dual processor and bttv support into a new kernel,
changing the PNP BIOS settings to get the bttv card to work, I've broken my
sound : (.
I know that sound worked with the new kernel, but the bttv driver didn't work
because the sound, pre-compiled to use int 9 was conflicting. I changed the PNP
BIOS setting to get the bttv driver to work and everything seemed happy, but I
now notice that the sound is no longer working. I get DMA timeout messages in
I tried changing the PNP settings in BIOS to several settings, but nothing
seems to bring back the sound. I've got a crystal sound card compiled with
CS4235 at 0x534 IRQ5, DMA 1 &3
MPU-401 at 0x330 IRQ9
Like I said, I know this worked in this kernel before I changed the PNP setting
in BIOS, I just can't seem to get it back. I'm not using the bttv card, so I'm
not too worried about that at the moment. I jsut want my sound back.
I'm just about at the point of wiping my drive, getting rid of WindowNT in the
process, and installing Mandrake 7.1 At least I'll be able to use RPM's like
everyone else, I just like Debian's superior .deb system better.
