Re: Problem with linux-kernel 18.104.22.168 for ibm-thinkpad t40?
I've now got sound also with 22.214.171.124 also. Very happy :)
I'm the one who didn't have /dev/dsp. So I recompiled the kernel with
Javier-Elias's config and /dev/dsp appeared. Kudos Javier! Good thing
(only now my USB mouse doesn't work, but that's a different story)
Still got 2 issues though:
When I boot my laptop, esd seems to use /dev/dsp - the music player
can't play because of this. The sound server reports something like it:
"The sound device is busy.." So when I *fuser /dev/dsp* and kill the PID
- it plays! But I have to do this everytime I boot. Is there a way to
get rid of this problem?
My gnome-alsamixer settings keep changing back to default when I
boot/reboot, so I also have to reset these everytime. Anyone?
Thanks till so far for the solutions brought up though :)

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...
nearly the same here. I am running debian unstable on an IBM R50P. I
decided to use 188.8.131.52 and there was silence.
A few days later I tried 184.108.40.206 and everything was OK again.
I was not able to track down the error. The system "thinks" to play the
sound (according to the analyzer in xmms) so it seemes to be a problem
with the mixer.
Some digging in the dark:
Perhaps it has something to do with the kernel-version and the
alsa-version in unstable - did you try an upgrate?
Another guess is kernel-version versus gcc-version - again: try upgrade
and then rebuild the kernel.
Have you looked here:
they propose following solution:
.. you just need to mute the two jack sense mixers switches...
PS, I closed the bug as it was solved (and anyway not Debian-related)....
