2.4.0 kernel: cs4232 driver "bad"
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
Although sound quality on the 2.2.16-20 kernel with a cs4232 adapter is not
great (lots of cherps and whistles), the 2.4.0-0.20 kernel is terrible. I
have sound enabled on sawmill and gnome.
With the 2.2.16-20 kernel, the sound effects are OK.
With the 2.4.0-0.20 kernel, all hell breaks loose. Not only is the volume
about triple what it was under 2.2.16-20, but it sounds like my system is
about the "explode"!
The system is a Dell Workstation 410 with the cs4232 on the motherboard,
Adaptec scsi adapters, and a dual 600MHz PIII.
2.4 is a development tree. Sound in 2.4test is a complete disaster. Its provided
as an experimental tree. Its not expected to work sanely
