i810_audio, RedHat 9, and Intel D850EMV2 mb

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]<


I'm running RedHat 9.0 on a system with an Intel D850EMV2 motherboard.  The sound driver seems to have a slight problem.  I cold boot the machine with an audio CD in the drive, then start the CD Player.  No sound.  So I run redhat-config-soundcard.  Sound!  Then I reboot and try the CD Player again.  No sound!

I played around a while and discovered that all you need to do to make the sound card listen to the CD drive is to play a wav file first.  So, I put the following in /etc/rc.d/init:

/usr/bin/play -d /dev/dsp /usr/share/redhat-config-soundcard/redhat-sample.wav -v 2

Everything works.  I suppose a more elegant solution would be to have the driver, i810_audio genlty tap the sound card some time late in the initialization.

I recompiled my own kernel with 2.4.20-13.9 and the i686 options.  The only change I made in make xconfig was to add support for reading NTFS file systems.  Should turn on the debugging messages in /usr/src/linux-2.4/drivers/sound/i810_audio.c and recompile?
