Re: Problem with linux-kernel 184.108.40.206 for ibm-thinkpad t40?
not the same hardware, but in case it provides some comfort... my sound
keeps dying and coming back when I change kernels, because things just
randomly change, so I'm getting adept at re-checking the obvious stuff.
I'm running 220.127.116.11 on a ICH4 chipset... It seems to keep getting set
to something abnormal.. It should look like so...
% ls -al dsp
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Dec 27 12:02 dsp -> /dev/dsp0
% ls -al /dev/dsp0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root audio 14, 3 Dec 27 12:02 /dev/dsp0
what seems to happen a lot is that the permissions are not managed
correctly. /dev/snd contains all the mixer controls. Can you bring up
a mixer, like kmix, or alsamixer in a shell window
chmod 666 /dev/dsp0 /dev/snd/*
Are the correct drivers loaded? you should have something like
snd_intel8x0 loaded along with all the other snd_ stuff.
watch out if it loads the snd-intel8x0m that has modem support
assuming after checking the above you can bring up a mixer,
check the levels on it. They seem to get set to mute and you have
to raise them to hear anything.

I have the exact same problem on my T42. I installed 18.104.22.168 with the
same sound config as you and the same one worked fine with 22.214.171.124
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-126.96.36.199. 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-188.8.131.52 just in case...
Thanks in advance (if possible please include me with [to] or [cc] so
that I get the answer directly)...
