Description Miloš Komarčević 2003-07-23 15:55:22 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030703

Description of problem:
Legacy SB card does not work in Severn because of a reported 
probable IRQ conflict (i.e. sound is chopped). 
However, /proc/interrupts shows there is no IRQ conflict, and
changing the soundcard IRQ does not change the behaviour.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot kernel (w/ or w/o ACPI)

Actual Results:  
Soundblaster audio driver Copyright (C) by Hannu Savolainen 1993-1996
sb: No ISAPnP cards found, trying standard ones...
SB 4.13 detected OK (220)
sb: Interrupt test on IRQ7 failed - Probable IRQ conflict

Expected Results:  
No IRQ conflict report and a working soundcard.

dmesg output

I've managed to get sb working with 'acpi=off' and reserving
IRQ 5 for legacy ISA in the BIOS.

However, when ACPI is enabled, it uses IRQ 5 as shown in the dmesg
attachment, which creates the conflict with sb.
