Soundblaster AWE 64: potato package update wrecked sound
I had a working sound configuration until last weekend with Debian 2.2,
Kernel 2.2.17 and Soundblaster AWE 64 Gold.
Then I decided to update my system from potato-stable (about 32
packages/25 MB). Since the next reboot the module sb wants to use IRQ7
and sound isn't working anymore.
This happened before after I updated my system from Debian 2.1 to Debian
2.2. I did a lot of things like disabling the BIOS support for PNP
Operating Systems, building a kernel without sound, disabling isapnp,
deleting modules.conf. Just like a blind chicken looking for food :-(.
Somehow I managed to revive the sound.
This time I updated only some packages. I didn't change the sound
base-config 0.32 -> 0.33.2
base-passwd 3.1.7 -> 3.1.10
debconf 0.2.80.16 -> 0.2.80.17
dpkg 1.6.14 -> 1.6.15
dpkg-dev 1.6.14 -> 1.6.15
make 3.78.1-8 -> 3.79.1-1.potato
makedev 2.3.1-44 -> 2.3.1-46.2
modutils 2.3.11-8 -> 2.3.11-10
Additionally I updated some XFree-3.3.6 Packages.
What the h... is going on. This is weird.
Now I`m looking for 'professional' help
Thanks in advance
