Description Chris Kloiber 2003-11-04 01:42:55 EST
Description of problem:

Machines hard lock running Codeweavers Plugin (v2.0.2) or Office
(v2.1.0) when the sound device is used like when launching Window
Media Player 6.4. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Crossover Plugin or Office (free trial version available)
2. Install Windows Media Player 6.4
3. Open an avi... and halt!
No debugging output on serial console, no VT switching, no magic sysrq
keys function. nmi_watchdog does not function on this system either.

I even tried installing and running ALSA on this system. Sound under
linux became usable (with stock driver sound speed is way off) but
ALSA sound fails with exact same results. (Could it be the hardware
itself?) ALSA has been backed out for further testing.

If you disable sound entirely (remove sound drivers), no lockup
occurs. This should prove it's sound related.

Hardware information for this ssytem (HP/Compaq D530S Workstation)
will be attached in sysreport output, but I have heard other users
experiencing similar problems in taroon-list.

I cannot reproduce this effect of complete system lockup.

However effectively all plugins installed in Crossover Plugin failes
to play sound except the first seconds.

I was not able to try this with the commercial OSS, in order to
detemine whether it is sound driver-related, since the commercial OSS
fails completely on my ICH4. Thus I cannot comment on whether it is
sould driv er related.

Does this problem still occur in latest { RHEL3 | Fedora }?
Comment 4 Chris Kloiber 2004-06-27 23:23:34 EDT
I can't say, I no longer have access to the machines I used when this
occurred. I don't have this kind of issue with my current
hardware/updated Codeweavers Offerings (Plugin having been discontinued) 

I think you could close this if you like.

Closed based on above feedback...please re-open if problem is still
observed on current Red Hat distros...
