I just wrote a long reply to the last post after logging in to the board submitted it, was asked to log in again and the whole thing disappeared. I'm sure XP must have some sort of filter built in to prevent people making constructive suggestions about Linux.

Anyway I can't be arsed typing in the whole thing again, basically I've looked at the modem database at PCTEL, the output of my lspci -v and -n is near enough identical to entry #75. Which is listed with chipset: SiS. Is this what I need to configure the driver:

./configure --with-hal=SiS

The previous version of this post was absolutely brilliant!

Cheers.

Amos.

Am starting a new thread for the modem entitled:

Problem with "PCTEL HSP MR" Modem

As I seem to have wandered away from the original problem.

Cheers

Hey amos, maybe you want to write a howto on that for the newest of the newbies....? <grin>

I've got exactly the same problem you had, with the same sound hardware, and I saw that someone else (http://www.geocrawler.com/archives/3...02/9/0/9724528) fixed the very same problem with the same solution, so this clearly is the way forward for me.

Cheers dude,
Vasudeva.

There is a conflict with the kernel and alsa sound modules and the pctel sound modules. Most people have to comment out the sound modules in modules.conf.

The OSS drivers do not conflict but cost.

I made a web page on how I did it

I found a new modem driver from smartlink that does not conflict with the oss sound drivers slmdm-2.7.10 seems to work (2.7.14 did not) with pctel and lucent amr modems without conflicting with the sound (alsa, oss and kernel drivers all work)

I too now have sound. I fixed mine by patching my kernel to version 2.4.22 and recompiling with all the ACPI options turned on apart from CPU enumeration, as Amos said, and with the SiS7012 driver compiled as a module. Turned off the ALSA service, added the alias sound i810_audio line to my modules.conf and commented out all the other sound references, and Robert is my mother's brother.

Now the CD player doesn't work. )

SIS7012 and Mandrake 9.2,

Hi,

I'm using Mandrake 9.2 on my laptop that has a SIS 7012 onboard sound driver. I have the same problem as you guys. I find in /var/log/messages a note:

PCI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin C of device 00:02:07. Please try using pci=biosirq
ALSA intel8x0.c:2404: unable to grab IRQ 0

You mentioned as a solution patching up to kernel 2.4.22. Well Mandrake 9.2 installes this kernel as default - 2.4.22-10mdk. So I suppose this shouldn't be the problem? Mandrake 9.2 uses ALSA 0.96. I downloaded latest ALSA 1.0 rc2, kompiled the drivers and installed them. Still the problem was not solved.

I tried also installing kernel 2.6.0 but f***ed up mu computer with this. Mandrake boots in graphical mode and when I installed new kernel it wouldn't continue after unpacking the kernel. Maybe it has something to do with graphical mode, maybe something else. I noticed that my laptop wouldn't boot from newest Fedora Core 1 CD-s as well. I succeeded installing only Mandrake 9.2. The graphics controller is also from SIS. Maybe that's why.

Anyways I now try to find a solution by fixing the sound system without upgrading the kernel. Have you tried SIS 7012 with Mandrake 9.2 ?

Hi,

let me answer my own question about Mandrake 9.2 and SIS 7012 soundcard. As you pointed out the key is enabling ACPI. Mandrake 9.2 (e.g kernel 2.4.22) already does that. Just start the drakboot program and check the "enable ACPI" item. After restart it'll work. The problem is that now APM doesn't work and you have no way to determine if your notbooks battery is getting low. Hope 2.6 kernel fixes this problem.

If Mandrake 9.2 is like 9.1 in this regard, the reason APM doesn't work is because the kernel that Mandrake ship only has a partial ACPI implementation. If this is the case, it will probably say so if you open the "Configure KDE" program and go to PowerControl->Laptop Battery.

If this is the case, the way to make your battery monitor work again is to install the kernel sources from your Mandrake distro and compile yourself a new kernel, this time setting all the relevant ACPI options on. While you're at it you might as well set it to the exact processor type you're using too.

If you get a vanilla set of 2.4.23 kernel sources, download the following patch:

http://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern....4.23.diff.bz2

If your sources are in /usr/src/linux (ie linux points to linux-2.4.23) put the patch in /usr/src, enter the top level of the kernel sources (cd linux), apply the patch:

bzip2 -dc ../acpi-20031203-2.4.23.diff.bz2 | patch -p1

Configure the kernel as you want turning off all apm choices and turning on all acpi choices (except debugging). When you recompile and start up this should give you full acpi functionality. You may have to enable acpid to achieve this though.

Alternatively upgrade to 2.6.0 and see if you can get that working.

There'll be a 2.4.22 patch at the same place as the other patch.

If you get sound working go here:

ftp://ftp.smlink.com/linux/unsupported

download and compile the 2.7.10 package and your modem should work. There is a conflict with some of the other drivers but 2.7.10 works.

Cheers
Amos
