how to apply these settings when the driver is compiled into the kernel?

In that case they would need to be in grub's kernel line, e.g.
Code:
kernel /boot/kernel root=/dev/sda1 snd-hda-intel.enable_msi=1 snd-hda-intel.position_fix=2

Anyway, ALSA should be compiled as external modules.

You'r right.
But I prefere to compile drivers for hardware that will never be replaced... like onboard sound... into the kernel.

Thanks for the kernel-line

What about the "alias" lines in /etc/modules.d/alsa - would they take effect? I don't know.

No. But you could try something like that:

Just as en example to skip the order of two cards:

Code:
snd-emu10k1=index=0 snd-via82xx=index=1


all parameters are documented in the /usr/src/linux/Documentation/sound/alsa/ALSA-Configuration.txt

there was another one... but I cant remember... sry

Just in case somebody is wondering:

DISABLE EZ_RAID (SIL-4723) and get 4 full speed ICH7 SATA ports
Quote:
remove EZ-Backup jumpers (page 2-27)
enable "EZ Backup RAID Mode Change" in the BIOS (page 4-31)
attache SATA Disk to the EZ_RAID1 port


The SIL-4723 is just a "splitter" which splits one SATA (in our caste the ICH7 port2) port into two ports.
http://www.siliconimage.com/products/product.aspx?id=64
This is just a cheap way to get an one more port without the need of drivers and use these as raid.

I have the same motherboard and everything seems to work without problems. (BIOS 2004 and Intel E6600)

After proving gentoo 64bits on an AMD64 3400+ and kubuntu my present 32bits system is “the best one” than I have been able to have. Its stable and really very fast.

I leave here the configuration of my kernel (gentoo sources 2.6.22-r8) and make.conf like reference.

Config Kernel :: http://sinovac.net/downloads/config-2.6.22-r8.txt
make.conf :: http://sinovac.net/downloads/make.conf-20070929.txt

Thanks for your support.

With CONFIG_RTL8187=m in sys-kernel/git-sources-2.6.23_rc9-r6, the built-in wireless works :)

Code:
$ grep IEE /usr/src/linux/.config

CONFIG_IEEE80211_CRYPT_WEP=y
CONFIG_IEEE80211_CRYPT_CCMP=y
CONFIG_IEEE80211_CRYPT_TKIP=y
# CONFIG_IEEE80211_SOFTMAC is not set


/etc/init.d/net.wlan

Code:
#!/sbin/runscript

depend() {
   need net.lo
}

start() {
   ebegin "Starting wireless"

   modprobe rtl8187 || eend 1

   ifconfig wlan 192.168.2.8 up || eend 1

   /sbin/wpa_supplicant -B -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -i wlan || eend 1

No need for extra init script or udev rules.

Just add this to your /etc/conf.d/net
Code:
#############################################################################################
#WLAN (intern) RTL8187
#############################################################################################
mode_wlan0="managed" #optional
wpa_supplicant_wlan0="-Dwext -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant_RTL8187.conf" #-c is optional too
config_wlan0=( "dhcp" )
dhcpcd_wlan0="-R -G" #optional
dns_servers_wlan0=( "217.146.139.5" "62.157.101.211" ) #optional
#############################################################################################


create the "init script" as usual
Code:
cd /etc/init.d/ && ln -s net.lo net.wlan0


and start it as usual:
Code:
/etc/init.d/net.wlan0 start


use
Code:
wpa_gui -i wlan0


to configure your WLAN-Access

I'm having no such luck sadly...

It's the built in RTL8187 card on the USB bus, built in to an ASUS P5W DH Deluxe motherboard. It shows up no new network interface at all. Kernel is 2.6.23-gentoo, and it's amd64.

Here is the dmesg output:

wmaster0: Failed to select rate control algorithm
wmaster0: Failed to initialize rate control algorithm
rtl8187: Cannot register device

I have the same problem, and found nothing about the problem anywhere. Any ideas would be nice.

hey blubbi

first of all thanks for your great bug-fixing-list !!!

then maybe you should add to " Hardware Monitoring with lm-sensors " Intel Core (2) Duo/Solo temperature sensor ( SENSORS_CORETEMP Depends on: HWMON && EXPERIMENTAL )

this sensors shows (imo) a much better cpu-temp, because the temp from w83627ehf seems to be much too low :roll:

greets m4yer

My rtl8187 suddenly started to work today, I changed some kernel options, but unfortunately I'm not sure which exactly. But I think it must've been
Code:
CONFIG_INET_TUNNEL=y
that did the trick, or some other network feature that I activated (I know I fiddled with them).

Hi jniklast

Where did you find that option? I can see it in .config, but cannot at all figure out how to make it visible in menuconfig.

Thanks

It's under Networking -> Networking options -> TCP/IP networking, and I believe I activated both IP: tunneling and [/i]IPsec tunnel mode, but like I said I'm not all sure about this.

Hmm, I cannot see it (and IP: tunneling which you see there is CONFIG_NET_IPIP not CONFIG_NET_TUNNEL):

Well my menuconfig says it also selects INET_TUNNEL:
Code:
 Depends on: NET && INET
 Location:                                                             
   -> Networking                                                         
     -> Networking support (NET [=y])                                   
        -> Networking options                                             
         -> TCP/IP networking (INET [=y])                               
 Selects: INET_TUNNEL


Well, anyway, just select IP: tunneling and IP: IPSec tunneling mode and try if it works. Because it seems those two were the only things I changed before it started to work.

Thanks for keeping track on the issues of this motherboard, it has been very helpfull.

I think I have found a solution on the master volume. Add the following line to /etc/modules.d/alsa:
Code:
options snd_intel8x0 ac97_quirk=2

then update the modules and restart alsa (asuming you use modules)
Code:
modules-update
/etc/init.d/alsasound restart
I have found the solution here: http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=286621

This option is not available for the module snd_hda_intal
Code:
snd_hda_intel: Unknown parameter `ac97_quirk'
snd_hda_intel: Unknown parameter `ac97_quirk'


And the snd_intel8x0 is not the required driver on this board

blubbi, I've posted to fast. I do now have a PCM channel with which I can control the master volume, which is more than I had before. What I forgot to tell was, that I am using a different driver now. Recently I switched to the "Intel HD Audio" (Azalia) driver.

My alsa file now looks like this:
Code:
alias char-major-116 snd
alias char-major-14 soundcore
# -- Azalia controller -----------------------------
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel index=0 id="HDA"

# OSS/Free portion - card #1
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
alias /dev/mixer snd-mixer-oss
alias /dev/dsp snd-pcm-oss
alias /dev/midi snd-seq-oss

options snd cards_limit=1
# to get mixer back
options snd_intel8x0 ac97_quirk=2

[Edit]The only error I get is:
Code:
hda_codec: Unknown model for ALC882, trying auto-probe from BIOS...

I am courious about
Code:
options snd_intel8x0 ac97_quirk=2
cause this driver is not responsible for anything on our board.... correct me if I am wrong. snd-hda-intel (snd_hda_intel) is the right driver for the card used on this board....

Could anyone comment on this?

By the way, I tried both and there was no differenz at all (what I did expect)
Just loading snd_intel8x0 -> no sound

OK, just to test it. I did remove the option snd_intel8x0 ac97_quirk=2. And I still have a PCM with which I can control the master volume?!! Do you have this line in your /etc/modules.d/alsa?:
Code:
options snd-hda-intel index=0 id="HDA"
Just fore info lspci -v gives:
Code:

I think if you are using the HDA (thus using CONFIG_SND_HDA_INTEL=m) than you need it.

But the real question is, does the PCM work as an overall volume control? Before I did use the HDA driver, I did not have the PCM control and thus no overall volume control available. Now I do have a way to control the overall volume, so I am happy with it.
