I have the sound blaster 16 card on one of my athlon (on PIII i have
es1731), that has one isa slot on its MB.
It works well, but i do not use isapnp nor any pnp support is enabled
inside of the kernel.
running 2.4.5/2.4.6-pre2


Yes, dropping any PNP support does resolve the problem. For my
installation, I don't need PNP support, so it's OK. The bug is in the
communication between the 2 modules.
