Description Jonathon M. Robison 2002-10-21 16:26:51 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows 98; F-5.0.1SP1-
20000718; F-5.0.1-20000221)

Description of problem:
Dell Latitude C600. Maestro3.
Normal boot: lsmod shows soundcore, maestro3, ac97_codec, but attempt to 
communicate with sound card cause kpanel to lock up, and other screen lockups. 
Tried upgrading kernel. No help. (running 2.4.18-14)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Reboot konsole
3.playwave /usr/share/sounds/pop.wav

Actual Results:  kpanel becomes 100% unresponsive, no sound is played, and 
cursor doesn't come back until I use a cntrl-c on the playwave request.

Expected Results:  Should have played the wave, etc.

Additional info:

I manually removed all sound componenets vi rmmod (soundcore, maestro, 
Manually inserted with insmod in THIS ORDER:
1. soundcore
2. sound (not loaded on normal boot, and lsmod still says unused . .)
3. ac97_codec
4. maestro3

After doing it like this, sound worked. I'm not a driver writer, so I'm just 
about neck deep at this point. Can't take it any deeper for you.

/etc/modules.conf has:
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
alias eth0 3c59x
alias sound-slot-0 maestro
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 
2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 
|| :
alias usb-controller usb-uhci

Hope this helps. If you find a quick/easy fix, please tell me? I don't really 
want to add all this to rc.local

This looks like a dup of 76148

Comment 2 Jonathon M. Robison 2002-10-21 18:29:22 UTC
After reviewing 76148, I tend to agree that they are likely the same problem. 
However, I had not found out about the killing of esd.
BTW - compiling your own 2.4.18-17.8.0-custom doesn't help.
