Description Hugh Bragg 2001-04-26 13:53:30 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19-6.2.1 i686; Nav)

I have compiled esssolo1 as both module and kernel with the same result.
My modules.conf file reads:
alias sound-slot-0 esssolo1
options esssolo1 io=0x220,0x330,0x388 irq=5 dma=1,5
options sound dmabuf=1

It makes no difference if I use dmabuffer=0 either.
There are no compile problems and the board used to work with kernel-2.2.16
but did not work for kernel 2.2.17 and 2.2.19

/var/log/messages reports nothing but snconfig causes the first console to
report that soundblaster8 went missing.
The cdrom play fine.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.compile esssolo1
3.play a sound file

Actual Results:  Error message:
sox: Invalid audio buffer size 0

Expected Results:  music

I have the same problem at home with my ESS1680 (I think) model

Comment 1 Hugh Bragg 2001-05-22 08:47:47 UTC
Solved this one by deleting the /dev/dsp and /dev/audio devices.
Apparently when I upgraded from 2.2.16 to 2.2.19 the device was broken.
The solution appeared one day when /dev/dsp had grown to about 60Mb on my root
I don't know if this is reproducible, but it is a nasty bug if it destroys

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2001-05-22 09:00:08 UTC
It's nasty all right.
I've NO idea what could cause this though.
