Unhappy Onboard sound chip problem after kernel upgrade


Hello,

I recently updated to a new kernel, on SID (this is the last major hardware or software thing that has changed, besides normal upgrades):
Quote:
Linux version 2.6.16-2-686 (Debian 2.6.16-14) (waldi@debian.org) (gcc version 4.0.4 20060507 (prerelease) (Debian 4.0.3-3)) #2 Mon May 22 23:10:59 UTC 2006
Kernel has reported in dmesg the following:
Quote:
Intel ICH: probe of 0000:00:1f.5 failed with error -12
And lspci output is:

02:0b.0 Multimedia audio controller: Xilinx Corporation RME Hammerfall DSP (rev 0b)
02:0d.0 Modem: PCTel Inc HSP MicroModem 56 (rev 02)
There is probably something wrong low down with the on-board chip discovery. Unfortunately I have no clue where to look for a possible bug report or remedy. Google and LQ forum didn't help either.

Please help me out, either directly or by letting me know how to continue debugging the problem.

TiA

Hi, have you tried "alsaconf" in a terminal as root?
