Re: no sound with latest nforce drivers (1.0-0283)
what you describe is right for me, too. Compiled OSS as module and nothing else.
I also tried to use ACPI=off and APIC=off as kerneloptions.
As I am on Debian, I also tried it with a 2.6.8 Stock Kernel (2.6.8-1-k7). Using this Kernel locks the box up, when modprobing nvsound.
This works on my self-compiled kernel, but i had to do a BIOS update to 1008.
I've also done lots of searching, but all answers point in sentences like:
"Use the i8x0 module... blabla"
But thats not what I want. First is, that my box is hooked up an DolbyDigitalAmplifier and I want to use it. Second, I want the same features as on other OSes, like WinXP, namely use analog and digital output simultaniusly.
I had Digital and Analog output working with the alsa drivers. But I want to have both at the same time. (i.e. Only use the amplifier if i want to have the "big" sound, otherwise use headphones/etc.)
Hope that somebody could give us all a hint.
