Description Peter Lister 2003-10-10 11:48:04 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
This laptop has only a "Win95" or "ACPI" choice in the BIOS for assigning IRQs.
 Neither seems to improve matters.  I tried RH9, and then tried the RawHide
2.4.22 kit as it seems that this card would need ACPI support, which apparently
is improved since 2.4.20. 

I have tried with pci=biosirq on the command line as the syslog message
suggests, but there is no improvement.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
[root@localhost prl]# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.4.22-1.2087.nptl #1 Sat Oct 4 09:42:49 EDT 2003
i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
[root@localhost prl]# cat /proc/cmdline
ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi pci=biosirq
[root@localhost prl]# /sbin/modprobe i810_audio
/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2087.nptl/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o: init_module:
No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including
invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
      You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg

Comment 1 Peter Lister 2003-10-10 15:02:14 EDT
Some extra musings... based on some google and archived linux-kernel emails out
there, notably from Alan Cox - it's my belief that the i810_audio *should* work
for SiS 7012, so this isn't a gripe about the driver per se (though it appears
that AC has a low opinion of the 7012), but about the (possibly ACPI related)
IRQ issues.
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2003-10-11 08:57:25 EDT
Note that acpi is automatically disabled unless you boot with acpi=on
