Hi Sunny,

Would you care to share the mainboard model and chipset numbers (and revision,
if appropriate?) I apologize in advance if you've posted this already, but I
sometimes seem to have a very 'twitchy' delete key finger! ;-)



Hi Carl,
the machine is Compaq Presario SR1710NR, Sempron 3400+, Asus mobo with
SiS chipset
ASUS A8AE-LE. Here is a link to mobo specs on hp site:

So, the problem is that the APIC kernel support for this mb is kind of
shaky. Most of the devices (incl. sound, network, etc.) share the same
IRQ. Even if I disable the onboard sound and put another one (tried
with PCI and USB), it hooks up them to tre same IRQ.

And I can not use the mike - it breaks after 2-3 sec of working, I
tried skype, and other recording programs. I tried both 64 and 32 bit
SuSE 10, Knoppix 32 bit. It is always the same.

I know from the kernel lists that there is a problem with the APIC
support for some SiS mobo's, so I hope that if I can set the IRQ for
the sound to something else, it may work.

Windows is a 32-bit extension to a 16-bit graphical shell for an 8-bit
operating system originally coded for a 4-bit microprocessor by a
2-bit company that can't stand 1 bit of competition.
