Re: Problem with linux-kernel 188.8.131.52 for ibm-thinkpad t40?
I have the exact same problem on my T42. I installed 184.108.40.206 with the
same sound config as you and the same one worked fine with 220.127.116.11
But now there's just no sound. I recompiled quite a few times changing
the sound section in the kernel-config, but nothing seems to help.
I noticed that I get an error message saying: /dev/dsp not existing. I'm
not sure about this /dev/dsp, haven't figured out what this is and if it
is significant to our mutual problem.
Thanks in advance,

I have installed on a IBM-T40 debian unstable. I had my own compiled
linux-2.6.10 working well for quite a while, but I needed to recompile
the kernel, so I decided to go for linux-18.104.22.168. As usual its
compilation was not a problem, and reboot is smooth... Problems is
that when openning xmms and trying to listen anything with sound card,
nothing shows up, just silence...
I don't know if there's something wrong with ALSA for this new kernel,
but after several trials I declined my attempt. Actually I
recompiled linux-2.6.10, and I have the sound card up and running
again. Too bad I couldn;t get it to work on latest kernel though...
Has someone experienced the same? Any hints? I'm providing config
file I used for linux-22.214.171.124 just in case...
Thanks in advance (if possible please include me with [to] or [cc] so
that I get the answer directly)...
