Default nvsound module doesn't work on newer kernels

I am running gentoo linux and I must upgrade the kernel to newer version (>2.6.12). Nvsound module works perfectly on gentoo-sources-2.6.12-r10.
But on newer kernels it crashes my machine.
I have tried 2.6.13, 2.6.14, 2.6.15 and 2.6.16 on which it compiles normally but when loaded it crashes kernel. Kernel oopses.
Sorry I cannot output the message because it doesnt log the error.

I am using GCC 3.4.4 and 1.0.0310 nforce drivers. The error is the same with previous version of nvsound module.

Default Re: nvsound module doesn't work on newer kernels

hi,

i'm running Gentoo Linux on my AthlonXP / ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe / nforce2 MCP-T Hardware. Kernel 2.6.14-r5 and Kernel 2.6.15-r1 run with nvsound 0310 without any problems here.

I'm also using gcc 3.4.4

So it runs on newer kernels. This is nice to hear.
Now I just need to find out how to find out what seems to be the problem with my system...
What are your kernel settings? (General setup & Processor type and features)

Default Re: nvsound module doesn't work on newer kernels

Hi, here you can see my kernel 2.6.15-r1 General Setup

Code:
()  Local version - append to kernel release
[*] Automatically append version information to the version string
[*] Support for paging of anonymous memory (swap)
[*] System V IPC
[*] POSIX Message Queues
[ ] BSD Process Accounting
[*] Sysctl support
[*] Auditing support
[*]   Enable system-call auditing support
--- Support for hot-pluggable devices
[ ] Kernel .config support
()  Initramfs source file(s)
[ ] Optimize for size (Look out for broken compilers!)
[ ] Configure standard kernel features (for small systems)  --->
and here my Processor type and features

Code:
    Subarchitecture Type (PC-compatible)  --->
    Processor family (Athlon/Duron/K7)  --->
[ ] Generic x86 support
[*] HPET Timer Support
[ ] Symmetric multi-processing support
    Preemption Model (Preemptible Kernel (Low-Latency Desktop))  -->
[*] Preempt The Big Kernel Lock
[*] Local APIC support on uniprocessors
[*]   IO-APIC support on uniprocessors
[*] Machine Check Exception
<*>   Check for non-fatal errors on AMD Athlon/Duron / Intel Pentium 4
[ ]   check for P4 thermal throttling interrupt.
< > Toshiba Laptop support
< > Dell laptop support
[ ] Enable X86 board specific fixups for reboot
< > /dev/cpu/microcode - Intel IA32 CPU microcode support
< > /dev/cpu/*/msr - Model-specific register support
< > /dev/cpu/*/cpuid - CPU information support
    Firmware Drivers  --->
    High Memory Support (off)  --->
    Memory model (Flat Memory)  --->
[ ] Math emulation
[*] MTRR (Memory Type Range Register) support
[ ] Boot from EFI support (EXPERIMENTAL)
[ ] Use register arguments (EXPERIMENTAL)
[*] Enable seccomp to safely compute untrusted bytecode
    Timer frequency (1000 HZ)  --->
[ ] kexec system call (EXPERIMENTAL)

Thank you. This solved my problem. I'm a linux-newbie but I think "IO-APIC support on uniprocessors" was what solved this problem.
