patch to fix the problem
Comment 2 Jason Baron 2007-02-09 14:33:00 EST
Also worth noting is that no sound comes out of the box on either U4 or U5 with
the patch mentioned in comment #1. This patch is being proposed as a temporary
solution. Upstream kernles produce sound, but this would require a more
extensive backport to get working properly.
Comment 3 Jason Baron 2007-02-23 17:25:24 EST
This system booted fine on U4, while U5 panics the system on boot.
Comment 4 RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-02-23 18:05:27 EST
Since Keyword Regression exists, this is a blocker,
not an exception.  Cleared exception flag.
Set blocker flag."
Comment 5 RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-02-26 16:03:26 EST
