Default NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0301 sound driver problem

Hello

I installed NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0301 drivers for Mandrake 10.1 runing 2.6.8.1-12mdk version of kernel,
i installed just sound driver, installer compiled a driver and then installed it,
i changed modprobe.conf and replaced alsa driver with nvsound, upon restarting my system hung on showing this message.

Starting sound (nvsound)

i reverted modprobe.conf to alsa driver and booted the system then removed all sound modules using rmmod then modpobed nvsound this time also my system hung on loading nvsound module.

Default Re: NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0301 sound driver problem

I think the latest ALSA build supports NForce already. it's the intel-8x0.o driver or something like that. The ALSA driver seems to put less load on the system too.

I'm building an HDTV PRV( HD-3000 card from pcHDTV.com ) and need v5.1 Surround support but man, the CPU usage is still pretty high with both drivers. Atleast on my system. I'm thinking of trying the 2.6 kernel to see if that helps.

Good luck.

Default Re: NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0301 sound driver problem

Hello,

I have the nvsound driver up and running on my Shuttle SN41G2V2 running Gentoo with a 2.6.9-r9 kernel. The sound from the driver is great and the 301 release has fixed the audio/video sync issues that I was having with mythtv. Since I can now use the nvsound driver I also get the added bonus of being able to use 5.1 output with ac3 passthrough + hardware mixing - which is fantastic!

However, I have noticed an issue with the driver... after playing a number of media files, sometimes the driver just stops producing any sound output at all. Not entirely sure what causes this, but it seems to happen randomly after playing sound a few times. I'm using the spdif output of my shuttle and haven't checked if it's just this that is affected.

Any ideas on how I can track the cause of this issue?

Thanks

Hello a small update, or correction,
the system only locking up if i edit modprobe.conf and told to use nvsound as driver,
if i didn't edit modprobe.conf and use ix810 as default driver,
and modprobe nvsound after system boot the module is loading fine. so the problem only occurs when trying to load nvsound module at bootup, i tried add nvsound to modprobe.preload but it produced a large chunk of garbage (readable) text and hung the system,

Default Re: NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0301 sound driver problem

I have same problem, i nstalled last driver (NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0301-pkg1.run) and kudzu detected 2 sound card, i have in my modprobe.conf :
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
alias snd-card-1 nvsound

if i remove intel driver, the system hung on loading nvsound module :
....
[<e0802021>] Nvaudio_init_module+0x21/0x25 [nvsound]
[<c014228c>] sys_init_module+0x20a/0x33d
[<c0175281>] sys_read+0x41/0x6a
[<C0103903>] syscall_call+0x7/0xb

not easy to install this driver

By loading both modules indepentantly, does the control panel (nvmixer) work ?

If your not wanting 5.1 sound then use the intel_8x0 as it suppoprts ALSA like dougl says. The ALSA driver is superiour and you will have surround volumes, ect.. in gnome-volume-control or kmix.
