First of all (using -current of 26 October) I was not able to attach pcm to
my Yamaha OPL-SAx soundcard in my Toshiba Tecra8000 when using snd_pcm.ko.
Using a statically compiled driver though I had no trouble whatsoever. The
module was pre-loaded at boot time.
2nd with a working pcm driver I get sound glitches with display activity
under X (4.0). This was something I had before with both pcm and OSS's
sounddriver so it's not really an issue with the pcm driver but with the
X-server I assume. I DO have additional glitches occaisionally, that I
didn't have before and they are accompanied by the following kernel message:
pcm0: hwptr went backwards nnn -> mmm
Where nnn and mmm are numbers. nnn is not always bigger than mmm but I have
not seen either value above 4096.
Any pointers in what to attack in the X-server and/or pcm driver would be
My 3rd point is that I can't access any files on my NTFS partition. I have
3 partitions, one NTFS, one FAT16 and one BSD. FAT16 works fine, I can read
and write to it and all, but NTFS is being a bitch.
I can use 'ls' fine, no trouble there, I get all my directory listings and
I can change directories etc. etc. But I can't open any files at all. Even
'cat' fails. The error I get is 'Inappropriate ioctl for device'
It's been a long day so I'm not going to look into it further right now,
but if no one jumps up and says "D'oh I know what that is, let me fix
that......here's your patch, commit in 5 minutes" I'll go dig. In looking
for heads-up posts I ran across a single cvs-all post on the 1st of Oct
about ntfs.h, so I'm guessing that's where I will start. (The last time I
tried to access files on my NTFS drive was with a september build of -current).
That's it for now.
Oh, just out of curiosity, I build both my kernel and world with
-mcpu=pentiumpro and -march=pentiumpro. Would there be any reasons not to?
