I'm at a loss here.
For some reason, my cs46xx based soundcard seems to be silent when I run
Enemy Territory after using it for any other purpose. Historically,
running "rmmod cs46xx" fixes the problem.
However, since upgrading to 2.6, rmmod cs46xx gets a segmentation fault.
A second attempt crashes the box. So, yesterday, after a week or more, I
rebooted my desktop.
It wouldn't start; 2.6.1-1.166 kept hanging on boot; sometimes starting
cups, when that was disabled, messagebus hung. The curious thing is that
when it hung, if you pinged the box from another machine...it would kernel
panic. I was running 2.6.1 fine for near three weeks, and a few reboots,
with no problems.
I tried to go back to 2.4.22. Which hangs on ACPI and when that's turned
off, it hangs starting X.
So, I installed 2.6.2 in desperation. That boots up fine, though running
with the NVidia binary driver, X hangs. With the free driver, it's fine.
What is going on here ?
