Maybe someone can help me here. I'm running Linux 1.0 on a
486dx2 8 mb with a Sound Blaster 16 set to: port 220h, irq 5, 8 bit
dma channel 1, 16 bit channel 5. The next device starts at 240H and
irq 5 is not in use. Overall, I can't find any conflicts. I have tried
using a base port of 260h and I tried only installing the SB/SBpro
drivers and excluding the SB16 one. Operation in Dos gives me no
problems but vplay (from the 2.4 sound.util source) crashes after 0 to
30 seconds of 8 or 16 bit sound play.
Here is the kernel's screen dump just before everything froze.
At the time, I had only included SB, SBpro and FM in zImage. This
particular error occurred seconds after a fresh reboot as I was
experimenting. Nothing that I did seemed to affect the problem.

My bootup looked like this:
Snd2 <SoundBlaster Pro 4.5> at 0x220 irq 5 drq 1
Snd1 <Yamaha opl-3 FM> at 0x388 irq 0 drq 0
Does this appear ok?
