    SubjectSB16 Sound driver problem
    I am having big problems with the SB16 sound driver for the
    latest kernels. I'm not sure when this started. Under kernel
    2.0.4, loading sound.o via kerneld works *once* only. After
    that it loads, but puts:

    sb: Interrupt test on IRQ10 failed - device disabled

    in the syslog. I then get "device not availible" messages when
    trying to use any of the sound utils. On later kernels (2.0.6
    and 2.0.7) I get a complete system hang the second time
    kerneld tries to load sound.o. (I've done this by hand with
    insmod as well). I did not try kernel 2.0.5.

    It seems that the sound driver is leaving the card in a very
    bad state when it unloads. I compiled sound support into the
    kernel under 2.0.7, rebooted, and the kernel froze right after

    Sound initialization started

    during the boot sequence.

    I powered cycled the machine to get it to boot.

    kernel: Sound initialization started
    kernel: <Sound Blaster 16 (4.5)> at 0x220 irq 10 dma 1,5
    kernel: <Sound Blaster 16> at 0x330 irq 10 dma 0
    kernel: <Yamaha OPL3 FM> at 0x388
    kernel: Sound initialization complete

    And now everything seems to work.
