Description of problem:
When I start KDE on an rh7.2 machine with kernel 2.4.9-13, artsd creates a high
pitched sound for about 30 secs and then segfaults (or is killed by KDE because
of CPU overload).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start KDE
This might be an artsd bug, but arts was not available as a component in the
component list. Still I think it is a kernel bug as everything works fine on
This is my audio hardware:
i810: Intel ICH2 found at IO 0xc400 and 0xc300, IRQ 9
i810_audio: Audio Controller supports 6 channels.
ac97_codec: AC97 Audio codec, id: 0x4352:0x5934 (Cirrus Logic CS4299 rev D)
i810_audio: AC'97 codec 0 supports AMAP, total channels = 2
It's a sound driver bug - arts works perfectly with all of my hardware.
Can you try the 2.4.9-31 kernel? there's a much improved i810 sound driver in that
See the original bug report where I said:
"... everything works fine on 2.4.9-31."
I can't use 2.4.9-31 though as it oopses constantly on me when
accessing smb mounted drives.
Come to think of it, I probably shouldn't have reported this as a bug as
it was fixed :-)
I think I fixed smbfs, see the 2.4.9-31.1 kernel at
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
