Serial and ALSA Problems in vanilla 2.6.3 (Powermac 8500-AWACS)
Hi folks, i've just compiled vanilla 2.6.3 (from www.kernel.org) for my
pmac8500 604e 200mhz
All went fine, except for planb (can't compile)....
in ALSA, a strange issue is happening with XMMS, when i use the ALSA
Output, sound is being played in double speed (i can see the timer
counting the seconds double speed too).... when i use ogg123 (in ALSA
output) in command line, all is perfect and the sound is in correct
XMMS is only playing music correctly via OSS Output (via OSS Emulation
This ever happened with someone?
In kernel config, i read that there was a new driver for that Zilog
serial chip , called pmac_zilog now , i've compiled it as a module ,
when i add it to kernel , it detects the 2 serial ports (with MMIOs
different of Old ("Obsolete") driver) and OK , when i try to use
anything that uses the serial port (my modem), it simply freezes my box,
and the Send Data and Receive Data of the modem go up permanently (only
lefting me with reboot as a choice), to use serial , i'm still having to
use the obsolete macserial ;////
someone have some advice?
