However, I'm pretty sure that it's not a generic ALSA problem with ISA DMA, as my good old GUS MAX still works perfectly on lx164 (machine that is very similar to your miata) as I checked yesterday with patched 2.6.25-rc4. :-)I have to hit <ctrl>C twice to interrupt playback. /proc/asound/cards looks normal: 0 [ES1888 ]: ES1888 - ESS AudioDrive ES1888 ESS AudioDrive ES1888 at 0x220, irq 5, dma1 1, dma2 5I wonder if it still works on x86 - perhaps you ought to ask ALSA folks. I'll search my machine room next week - I recall that there were a dozen of old ISA soundcards, maybe there is some es18xx stuff, but chances are slim...
Missed the original mssage, adding alsa-devel. I have a few dozen es18xx's cards but no Alpha's. Am compiling a 2.6.25-rc4 onto an x86 test box now.
