Component: UNIAUD32 Version: 1.1.4RC6
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: gyoung


I have just installed eCS 2.0 RC5 on a Tyan S2895-A2NRF Thunder K8WE system with 2 x AMD Opteron 248 (2.2 GHz) cpus. RAM = 2 GiB. I finally got SMP working with ACPI 3.10. CONFIG.SYS contains: ACPI.PSD /SMP /APIC CD /TMR /!NOD I have System sounds disabled in the sound notebook. Attaching the output of Uniinfo run.

Any ideas?

Verify that it got installed check config.sys. It failed to install at all here with RC5 and the multimedia installer fails also.

Uniaud16.sys and Uniaud32.sys are both in config.sys. Boot shows:

Universal Audio Driver for OS/2 and eComStation v1.1.4RC6 DEBUG Based on Alsa Copyright 2005-2008 Netlabs Copyright 2000-2008 The Alsa Project

NVidia CK804 at 0xb0002000, irq 11 Detected Mixer: Analog Devices AD1981B

OS/2 Universal Audio MMPM/2 Driver V1.1.4-RC6 DEBUG Copyright 2000-2002 InnoTek? Systemberatung GmbH Copyright 2002 IBM Corporation Maintained by Netlabs

RMVIEW shows that the CK804 is sharing IRQ 11:

IRQ Level = 11 PCI Pin = B Flg = SHARED EHCI Compliant USB Host Controller IRQ Level = 11 PCI Pin = NONE Flg = SHARED NVidia CK804 IRQ Level = 11 PCI Pin = A Flg = SHARED IDE_1 xATA Controller

Could this be causing a problem? Is "PCI Pin = NONE" a problem? If so, how do I get around it?

  • Component changed from Building to UNIAUD32
  • Milestone set to 1.1.4GA
  • Priority changed from high to normal
  • Severity changed from blocker to normal
  • Summary changed from No sound from 114RC6 under eCS 2.0 RC5 SMP to 114RC6 is silent with NForce AC'97 (10DE:0059)

Thank you for reporting, and for the thorough description. I believe this might be the same issue as Ticket #108. If so, we need to fix it for 1.1.4GA. To verify, please replace just Uniaud32.sys with the one from 1.1.4RC4. You can get it from:

If that works, please email me privately, and with your permission I'll send you some test builds when I get some time. My address is this same username at G mail.

Can you explain what you mean that the System sounds are disabled. I'm confused because it sounds like if you enable them it will work, which doesn't seem right because you opened a ticket.

I do not think the shared IRQ is a problem.

Replying to gentux2:

Can you explain what you mean that the System sounds are disabled.

Nevermind, I get that now. Just a statement of fact.
