I am running Linux on an ASUS A7V8X, VIA KT400 chipset motherboard. The
processor is a 1.5GHz Athlon XP. I started experimenting with new-ish
kernels again because of the general lack of kernel support for this
chipset in stock kernels.


2) The OSS audio driver. It works and this is the main reason why I use
this version of the kernel. The issue I have with it, is that if I start
certain applications (gaim, macromedia flash player 6 for example), esd
gets itself into some kind of hung/blocked state. When this happens, I
need to kill esd and re-start it. Games and xmms work however. The
reason I ask about this is that the downloaded driver from the viaarena
works on a stock kernel without this glitch. Is this a known problem?

The chip is a VT8235 and I'm happy that it mostly works in pre3 too. The
alsa driver reportedly works OK.

While I'm here, any chance of getting the bcm4400 NIC driver into the
2.4 kernel?
