Nforce2, kernel 2.4.22-pre2,3,4 , nvnet and ALSA
I have been running kernel 2.4.21 with ALSA 0.9.4 and nvnet from the driver package 1.0-261 and have had no problems.
I then compiled the 2.4.22-pre2,3,4 kernels and installed the same (recompiled) versions of the drivers. The nvnet works well and ALSA works but not together! I get about 10 seconds of audio while downloading and then XMMS quits and hangs and nvnet becomes un-usable. No messages in /var/log/messages related to the problem. Kernel 2.4.21 doesn't have the problem.
If I unload the nvnet module and reload it, I can restart the network. Audio will work after I unload nvnet too. The audio/nvnet mess-up only occurs with both XMMS (or mpg123) playing and nvnet active downloads. Using the audio in xawtv to watch tv doesn't cause the failure. hmmmmmmmm ...
Anyone else seen similar issues with the kernel 2.4.22-pre series? Suggestions?
