SubjectRe: linux 2.0.5 -hangs- with sound module / sb16
Hannu, I'm experiencing this lockup problem as well with linux-2.0.7. In my
case reloading the sound module will lock the system with no kernel oops or
warning. Nothing works at all.

Prior to the lock, and what prompts me to reload the sound module is that
the dsp begins to only play the first second of sound and then goes
quiet, while the kernel reports a DMA timeout..

Please note that sound playing is perfect for quite a while, the DMA
timeouts startup randomly with no warning. The last time the problem
showed itself, I was using RealAudio. I stopped the player and then when
I clicked the play button to restart it I only got a quick blip of sound
and then nothing. I closed the player down, unloaded the sound
module, reloaded it and boom, the machine locked up tight.

AMD-586 133mhz 24mb RAM
True SB16
