Hi Paul,

Please find attached the logs for v3.5 and v3.1.9.
As expected both give only distorted sound on my Thinkpad X250.

Greetings form Potsdam/Germany,
Mike

Paul,

  Can't get the computer to boot with either the debug or release version of 3.1.9 - after the disk check there is a long pause, then a bunch of messages flash by and end with 'Not enough memory to run PMShell.exe on the Protshell = statement in Config.sys' (I have 8GB). Never saw that before!

Regards,

It possible that new Uniaud32 consumes more system memory - try to decrease VAL.

http://smedley.id.au/tmp/uniaud32-linux-3.5.zip - release & debug builds included.

3.5 works ok on my CA0106/CA0111 [SB Live!/Audigy/X-Fi Series]

 OS4User - Tried decreasing VAL in increments of 512 down to 1024, but always the same result - 'Not enough memory...'.

Hi David

I seem to recall seeing a similar message many years ago but am struggling to remember details: I think it was either a failing PSU or a choked up CPU cooling fan.

Might be worth checking inside the system case...

Pete,

 System case is fine, the official UniAud works fine, and Paul's builds before 3.1.9 work fine. I'll upload a 'testlog generic' in case anyone is interested. Must be something else...

Regards,

Try running lxlite on uniaud32.sys...

Hey Paul,

  Tried 'lxlite uniaud32.sys' on both the debug and release versions of 3.1.9 and it made them much smaller, but both still result in 'Not enough memory...' at boot. I am now running the new official version released at http:\\trac.netlabs.org\uniaud (20200506.exe) with no trouble...

Regards,

Dave Yeo

Try reducing the THREADS number in config.sys, perhaps 768 or 512.
There's also a related one which I'm having trouble remembering, PROCESSES I think that needs adding to change.

progress! I copied hda_intel.c from linux 3.1.9 into my linux 3.2.0 source tree, rebuilt the driver and got sound. Now to review the changes and work out which change is the breaking one..

It's in the attached somewhere :)

As a test can you undefine CONFIG_X86 (only for the given file if possible) and rebuild?
Somebody has tried to mark memory ( sound data ? DMA accessed memory...) as "write combined". I guess that is flawed and would also explain the weird stuff with PMSHELL.EXE not having enough memory (which is obviously not true).

99.9% certain that CONFIG_X86 is not defined for us... That's a new define in newer linux builds - our config.h is manually created.

I will double check a little later.

My guess at the moment is that it's the changes around buffer sizes that break things for us in 3.2.0.

More to come later today.

Cheers,

Paul

Hi All,

Well I was wrong - it was actually these chunks that broke things:

Reverting these gets me sound in Virtualbox with both the linux 3.2 and linux 3.5 code.

New builds (each containing debug and release builds):

Feedback appreciated!

...and for good measure, a build based on linux 3.2.102 - http://smedley.id.au/tmp/uniaud32-linux-3.2.102.zip
