    SubjectProblems with SiS 7018 sound chipset

    I hope I don't bother you too much, I thought a long time wether I
    should report this at all but well, as an AC/DC fan I can't live
    without my soundcard ;)

    I own a laptop with a sis7018 sound-chipset and I am running FC4
    updated to kernel Linux cehost 2.6.15-1.1831_FC4 (not compiled
    I never had problems with my soundcard at all but some time ago it
    suddely stopped to work. I can't remember wether it was a
    kernel-update or a motherboard exchange made by service engineers.

    Whenever an application tries to access the sound-device I get
    messages like the following on syslog:
    codec_write 0: semaphore is not ready for register 0x2c
    the same again and again, but different registers: 0x2c, 0x2a 0x2c
    0x2c 0x2c 0x2c 0x3a 0x2a

    When booting up I get a strange message from the pci subsystem:
    PCI: Failed to allocate mem resource #6:20000@f0000000 for 0000:01:00.0
    booting with pci=noacpi did not help or change the situation.

    this is the output I get from lspci:
