Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6774
sound card use locks machine solid
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
I have a PC164 running RedHat 6.0.
I've tried kernels ranging from 2.2.5 all the way to current
2.2, as well as some 2.3 versions.
I'm using a SoundBlaster 16 PnP ISA card, and frequent sound
use will lock up the machine completely.
By sound use, I mean anything like playing mpeg3's, playing
games, playing any audio files of any kind. The stability
varies, but ultimately the machine locks up cold. Sometimes
within seconds. This is extremely difficult to
troubleshoot, as the machine doesn't actually get a chance
to panic. It just totally freezes, and I have to hit reset.
This is very frustrating, to say the least. I've posted
numerous times on the axp-list, to no avail. Although many
people apparently suffer from the identical problem.

Do you still see this in 6.2 ?
