Description Alex Tribble 2003-05-06 03:48:20 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 

Description of problem:
The <workqueue.h> kernel header is the 2.5 version, but kernel/workqueue.c 
does not exist! I don't know if reverting this file breaks anything else, and 
I haven't tried it yet, but using the 2.5 version defines several macros that 
are used as indicators in ALSA of a kernel with 2.5 style workqueuing, which 
this kernel does not have. ALSA has a workaround, but it will not enable if it 
thinks the kernel has support for it. This means that when one compiles the 
alsa-driver package, module snd.o always fails to insert, because it is 
missing the symbol schedule_work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get redhat-9.
2. Get alsa-driver-0.9.x
3. Untar it, run configure w/whatever options - it makes no difference, and 
4. make install and attempt to modprobe snd - it fails.

Actual Results:  It failed.

Expected Results:  It should have inserted.
