My NoteBook MaxData 650T (www.maxdata.de/maxdata.com)has an SoundCard
with an Yamha Chipset YMF744 (DS-XG).
My Poblem is
With RedHat Linux (i386) Version 7.0 sndconfig wants to
configure my SoundCard but a starting play the sample file
the NoteBook is FREEZED. No Chance for reboot or shutdown.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.login as root
3.play the sample file
the driver is part of the kernel; assigning there.
Pete: Does this sound familiar ?
ymfpci was not in the 2.2 kernel until 2.2.18-pre12 or so.
We ship 2.2.16 with RH 7.0.
I strongly suspect that the requestor attempts to load
ymf_sb, which, indeed, freezes many machines. This is
why it was thrown out of the kernel. Sorry that I cannot
I only can suggest to self-install 2.2.19 (if 2.2 series
are required), or upgrade to Red Hat Linux 7.1 that ships
with kernel 2.4 and ymfpci driver.
*** Bug 36062 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
But the RedHat 7.1 Beta with Kernel 2.4.0.xx and Kernel 2.4.3
has the same Problem.
I hope the Final is better, but if you dont know about the Problem
i think the bug is in the final verion too, or not ???
I do know that ymf_sb freezes machines and nothing
can be done about that. Requestor did not mention
anything about 2.4.x kernel problems in the original
report. The bug was closed on the basis of the information
contained in the report.
If 7.1 does not work, requestor please feel free to reopen
and change the revision, I will be happy to investigate.
