Hey Martin,

Hey Martin,

Hi Paul

I'm using the "release" version.
- Enabled Serial port and take the output as a RAW file.
- Enabled COM.SYS
- Added /p:1 on Uniaud.
- Rebooted and changed to "ICH AC97" to reproduce the trap.

This is what it showed on the RAW text file.

Uniaud32 version 3.01.01
Based on linux 5.15.59
pci_register_driver: query_device found 28 8086:2415 class=40100 checking intel8x0
pci_register_driver: matched 0 8086:2415/40100 with 8086:2415/0 0 (intel8x0)

It is something else I need to do?

Thanks - I'll see if I can reproduce with the release version tonight, and try and debug it.

Looks like it's trapping in a similar spot to the initial 5.15.59 build - during the initialisation of the hardware.

I can reproduce the trap with a release build of uniaud32.sys on ac97 hardware. Investigating now.

Edit: really weird why it's trapping where it is with release vs debug....

Cheers,

Paul

Hey Martin,

https://smedley.id.au/tmp/uniaud32-linux-5.15.59-20220807b.zip hacks around the issues causing traps with non-HDA hardware (tested with AC97 on Virtualbox).
I also went straight for the 20220807b and got a trap on VirtualBox.
I tested it with ArcaOS 5.0.7 VM guest on VBox 6.1.36 (Windows 10 host).
- VM ICH AC97: traps
- VM Intel HD Audio: Works, Audio control working, no traps.

I'm pretty interested in the trap on Virtualbox - as I specifically tested AC97 here on Virtualbox (but under Ubuntu). Was this with the debug or release driver? I only tested the debug driver. Are you able to get a serial port log?

Enable serial port in Virtualbox, and there's an option to save the serial port output to a text file.
Make com.sys (or pscom.sys) is loaded
add /p:1 to the uniaud32 driver line in config.sys
reboot

Cheers,

Paul.

Hey Dave,
  I went straight for the 20220807b version and it seems to work fine - system sounds, Youtube, PM123, double click an MP3 in the WPS all work great - thanks again! And I agree with Dariusz - the sound seems to be enhanced somehow...

Great to hear! Interesting that the sound 'sounds' better - although I guess that's the point of keeping the code up to date (as far as practicable) with linux :)

Cheers,

Paul

5.15.20 - alsa.log looks OK in Virtualbox - I'm not getting sound, but that's not unusual here when virtualised...
https://smedley.id.au/tmp/uniaud32-linux-5.15.20-20220807.zip

NB: non-HDA hardware will probably still trap with this build - will try investigate that today.

5.15.40 shows the same issue as 5.15.59. Some tweaks appear to resolve the issue...

Hey Dave,
This one is no different - alsahlp$ attached...

Yep...
Code: [Select]
channels: 2, period size: b00
channels selected: 2
HWP: SR rate 44100, BPS 16, CH 2, PRSZ 2c0, periods 16
Period size min=2c0 max=2c0
Error -123398048 second time.. Bailing
Unknown error 123398048
U16: StartStream: ConfigDev failed!!

<sigh> I'll likely end up merging 5.15.20 or so and see if that works, then 5.15.40 and try and isolate the breaking change....

https://smedley.id.au/tmp/uniaud32-linux-5.15.59-20220806.zip might fix the lack of audio...

Or it might not based on my testing in Virtualbox... For those that have no sound with HDA hardware in 5.15.59, does your alsa.log end with something like:
Code: [Select]
channels: 2, period size: b00
channels selected: 2
HWP: SR rate 44100, BPS 16, CH 2, PRSZ 2c0, periods 16
Period size min=2c0 max=2c0
Error -125548448 second time.. Bailing

Thanks Dave, I'll try and investigate over the weekend. I'm also getting a trap with AC97 hardware in VirtualBox.

Hey All,

It's been a while between drinks, but I updated uniaud32 to the 5.15 kernel. I first looked at this almost a year ago, and got lost in trying to implement the missing kernel functionality.

I took a slightly different approach this time, and got a compiled binary, that seems to work in virtualbox. I'll try see if my real hardware works as well over the weekend.

Link is https://smedley.id.au/tmp/uniaud32-linux-5.15-20220805.zip

Next steps will be to get to the current 5.15.x LTS build (5.15.59 at the time of writing)

The 5.15 kernel is a Long Term Support kernel, that has a projected end of life date of October 2023.

Cheers,

Paul

Hey Rick,

Getting further along in getting my Arca setup going... I am trying to get it to print.  I have the above mentioned HP printer on my network, Arca sees it, which was good but when I print to it, it prints one garbled line across the top of the page and that is it... Anyone point me where to trouble shoot?

Interestingly, that model isn't listed at https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imaging-and-printing/supported_devices/index?language=de

Which driver did you select?

Cheers.

Paul

There's also the fact that rust won't be included until most likely GCC 13 next year, and GCC13 is also planning to drop support for the STABS debugging format, which will cause us grief...

From the GCC 12.1 announcement: https://gcc.gnu.org/pipermail/gcc/2022-May/238653.html
Code: [Select]
This release deprecates support for the STABS debugging format and
introduces support for the CTF debugging format.

Hi Sigurd,

Sigurd, my friend:
Hi Lewis, I still can not figure out whether or not this formulation is meant to be sarcastic or ironic in this context. I hope not. (That's what I mean when writing "english is not my mothertongue")

I'm not Lewis, but I think I know him well enough to guarantee that his use of 'my friend' is 100% genuine with no irony or sarcasm involved.

Email/forums are a terrible communication mechanism :)

Cheers,

Paul
