I'm now having problems with sound on 2.4.2 too. 2.4.1 worked fine, same as
all preceding versions. I have a 490CDT, thats a Yamaha YMF719 chip
(OPL-SA3), is that what you have?
The kernel documentation seems to provide the clue as to what happened. The
author of the kernel driver (oplsa2.o) had thought YMF719 was different to
YMF715, but says he recently (Dec 2000) found out they're much the same. So
he's adjusted the code accordingly.
And in so doing has managed to break mine and your systems.
I haven't yet figured out what to do about it. midi works for me
(/dev/synth), but mp3s (/dev/dsp) do not. When the kernel loads up, it
doesn't find the sound system as a PNP subsystem (I'm not sure if it's
supposed to). If I turn off isapnp using the new driver option, then it says:
Mar 9 23:33:23 localhost kernel: opl3sa2: Control I/O port 0x0 not free
Mar 9 23:33:23 localhost insmod:
/lib/modules/2.4.2/kernel/drivers/sound/opl3sa2.o: init_module: No such device
Mar 9 23:33:23 localhost insmod: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by
incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
The IO and IRQ parameters were fine before. Sigh.
