Subjectopl3 under 2.4.0-test10
I am trying to setup my ALS 110 soundcard under my build of kernel

I have built in isapnp support and also the sb and opl3 drivers.

The sb driver works fine other than complaining about a missing 16 bit
DMA (which I understand is missing from the card anyway). I can play
and record wav with no problems. I am still missing MIDI.

However, even though I pass opl3=0x388 on the Kernel command line all
I get is an isapnp panic.

Am I doing something silly or is there a bug? Is it a sound driver or
isapnp or kernel problem?

While trying to locate the problem I could not get any response from

% cat /dev/sndstat
cat: /dev/sndstat: No such device

Is it not supported in 2.4.0? I can't find the same info in the /proc filesystem.

The full dmesg extract that seems relevant is

Linux version 2.4.0-test10 (root@HindleyHome) (gcc version 2.95.2 20000220 (Debian GNU/Linux)) #26 Fri Nov 3 18:08:00 GMT 2000

Thanks for the help
