I know there is a test 3 thread, and I posted there, but evidently I am invisible.

with the test 3 kernel I am having two problems that I did not have with test 3. Am I doing something wrong or is there a bug. My problems are this......

1. I am using ALSA build into the kernel. I have a VIA chipset with the AC97 onboard sound. It worked perfectly under test 2, but under test 3 when any sound starts I get about 3 seconds of static, and then the correct sound for about 10 seconds then another 3 of static. This repeats itself over and over. When I switch back to 2.4.21 sound is fine (after I set it all back up).

2. With test 3 printing from anything will only print about 20% of the first page then it stops. this is not a system hang, but printing stops. printing is fine in test 2 and 2.4.21.

please help and thanks in advance.

Do the system logs tell you anything about printing? Is your printer USB or Parallel or what?

As for the soundcard, do the logs give you any warnings? If you boot with "noapic acpi=off" does it still do that?

Have you checked the kernel bug list for either one to see if it's a known problem? Have you searched the kernel mailing list to see if there are posted solutions for those?

I have search and I have found several people having the same problem with the VIA82xx sound and ALSA, but nobody seems to care about trying to help these people :cry:

Nothing on the usb yet

You'll have to use your bootloader (lilo or grub) to do the kernel thing. Add the folowing to the end of the kernel parameters:

"noapic acip=off"

It would be interesting to see if that fixes the sound thing, although I doubt it. Based on what you've said it might be the driver that's at fautl.

As for your printer, it's USB huh? Well at least CUPS seems to be working, so I guess it's a USB problem. Sorry I can't be of more help.

thanks for your help,

I think I am going to buy a pcii sound card (no more on board). I have bought the soundblaster live (emu10k1).

I've just been using the OSS drivers for my onboard VIA sound in my laptop. I'd prefer to use alsa, but the VIA drivers just don't seem mature yet. I'm not using a 2.5/2.6 kernel on it, though.
