When attempting to load any sound module (for any card) the compaq proliant
800 totally locks up with no reported error messages except for the 'dead
console' I've already tired 6 differnt sound cards with no luck what so
ever. Same problem everytime.
Does it do the same if modules are loaded from the command line?
If you kill klogd and do 'dmesg -n8' (to turn console logging
up), do you get any error messages at all?
closed, lack of input.
