Description P.S.Ravi Kiran 2001-04-23 05:42:01 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.14-5.0 i686)

I have a Aurel au8810  sound card. This driver is not available in Linux
so.. I downloaded it from aurel site and installed. Then I could play audio
CDs well. 
but if I try playing any mp3/mpeg type audio files, the system hangs. There
is no print to know which module is faulty.  The only way is to reset the
system. I am loosing all the information in other programs.  The problem
persists with or without X interface , as root or as any other user and
with any mp3 player.. text based or graphical.. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install the aurel au8810 driver
2. run any mp3 file using any mp3 player.. 

Actual Results:  The system Just hangs it won't accept any keyboard or
mouse input.

Expected Results:  it should have played the song or atleast reported some

The PC is a HP-pavillon fully configured for windows98. we partitioned the
disk and installed Linux.

This is a problem with the driver - since we do not ship the driver we cannot
support it. Please contact the manufacturer.
