Description Linus Walleij 2007-01-23 03:28:35 EST
Description of problem:
My ES1869 chip died when upgrading to kernel 2.6.19.1.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.19-1.2895.fc6

How reproducible:
Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot into the newly pushed kernel
2. The ES1869 is stone dead, no sound whatsoever.
  
Actual results:
Driver does not work (it loads) these come from dmesg:
es18xx: unable to grap ports 0x220-0x22f
pnp: Device 00:0b disabled.
es18xx-pnpbios: probe of 00:0b failed with error -16

Expected results:
Worked fine with kernel-2.6.18-1.2869.fc6

Additional info:
This is a chip on the ISA bridge, not detected so needed special
hacks in /etc/modprobe.conf. I get the feeling ISA PNP was enabled
but doesn't quite work...

Here is a copy of my modprobe.conf:

# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
options snd-es18xx enable=1 isapnp=0 port=0x220 mpu_port=0x330 fm_port=0x388 irq
=5 dma1=1 dma2=0
# OSS/Free portion
alias char-major-14 soundcore
# card #1
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
remove snd-es18xx { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/mo
dprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-es18xx
alias snd-card-0 snd-es18xx
options snd-card-0 index=0
Comment 1 Linus Walleij 2007-01-23 04:02:51 EST
This was easily solved .. :-P

Remove all modprobe.conf crap and let PNP do its work, magically
it works (after some poking at the ALSA interfaces).

Sorry for this premature bug report.
