Lost interrupts after new HD, modem and sound card installed


Ok, my old modem died, 'twas a pci modem, and we relpaced with a creative external usb modem, on board sound didnt like that, they were fighting onve the same IRQ. I dug up an old creative soud card and installed it to the ISA slot, and disabled the old sound card in windows, liberating its IRQ.

Now when i start linux, it goes to where it looks at my hard drives, and says interupt lost and says somthing about host protected > 1 for hda, my new 120gb seagate drive.

I tried the noacpi line in grub to no avail, any other ideas? i even reinstalled and it still does it.

sorry for cross posting, but i thought it might be better suited here...

PLEASE help, i really need blue fish and mozilla back!

i think you are saying the interrupt lost errors are for the seagate ?????
or better yet are you sure the interrrupt errors are for the seagate ????
you said you did a reinstall
if you installed to the seagate then the driver was working ok for the install....
and the installer's kernel was getting allong with the bios and what not.....
OK so with that said i personally from reading what you wrote think the problem is the ISA soundblester
I personally don't know how to set up a card like this unless it's working already and i can look at the windows info... especially if it's prug and pray and not pins but this might help
http://www.linux.ie/newusers/beginne.../awe-setup.php
possibly the BIOS has a "PnP OS" or "Windows 9x support" setting that must be disabled
this might fix the usb / on board sound conflict as well. That BIOS PnP support is a total crap way windows actually needed to disable shared irq which for Linux is a disaster.


but if it's the hard drive
you could try
hda=nodma noapic
is this something fancy like a SATA drive ???
if your linux install is on another drive you cold
hda=none (or somehing to that effect) till you can figure this out

if you don't have more than one processor or P4 HT then make sure you didn't accidentally set the interrupt mode in the BIOS to APIC the interrupt mode should be PIC unless you are using SMP i think

I also get:
hda: dma_timer_expiry: dma status == 0x64
hda interrupt lost
hda intterupt recovered
hda: dma_timer_expiry: dma status == 0x64
hda interrupt lost
hda intterupt recovered
hda: dma_timer_expiry: dma status == 0x64
hda interrupt lost
hda intterupt recovered
...

and it goes on like that till i hardboot. I also got the seagate barracuda 120 GB. Im not sure if its related and its the hdd that is not compatible or something. I did an install with the hdd in so dunno. And it doesnt always happen, only sometimes. Someone help us!!!

*EDIT* Hey foo_bar_foo where would i put the " hda=nodma noapic " line? Wouldnt i have to go to system config and then modify a file or something (dunno im a linux complete newb)...

Im not sure which it doesnt like, it lists a device, declares the interupt lost on the next line and continues on, this happens on ALL my IDE devices, the zip, hda, my cd drive, and hdd, where linux is installed, then hangs up on the hda, the seagate baracuda.

bobb, the nodma noacpi goes into your boot loader, in grub i think you hit 'e' or somethin like that...

from the pictures ive seen, its an ATA.

i will try the nodma noapic, if i dont post back today (14th), assume it didnt work...

edit: now that i think of it, it has to be the soundcard, linux worked till i installed it, hd and all...

i managed to fix it by removing the ISa sound card, which has an IDE connector on the board, and replacing it with a PCI card.
