Problem Description:
With kernel 2.6.1 and 2.6.2 the ALSA Trident/SiS7018 (SND_TRIDENT) driver works
great with my SiS630-based laptop with onboard SiS7018 soundcard. I just
upgraded to vanilla 2.6.3 (using a .config from 2.6.2 and 'make oldconfig') and
I get no sound and dmesg reports:

  Trident4DWaveAudio: probe of 0000:00:01.4 failed with error -16

This happens with the soundsystem compiled as modules as well as static. I tried
kernel 2.6.3-mm1 and it behaves gives the same failure message.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Compile in support for SND_TRIDENT
2. Boot the kernel on a computer with a SiS7018 based soundcard
3. Run 'dmesg' and see the above failure message

Please let me know if you need more information from me to investigate this
problem further.

This regression is still present in kernel 2.6.4-rc1:

This bug appears to have been fixed in 2.6.5-rc2.

Excellent, thanks for checking!
Comment 6 Muli Ben-Yehuda 2004-03-21 10:59:36 UTC
