I could not use the built in ADI 1885 Audio on my Dell 4550, and after a great
deal of Googling, I found this single reference to the error I got (kernel
2.4.20, Slackware 9.0).  I tried it, and it worked.  If it is not in the current
kernels, I hope it will be.  I include the only e-mail archive reference I could
find.  I hope this helps.

[PATCH] 2.4.19-rc3, i810_audio: ignoring ready status of ICH for

Hello,

this patch for Kernel 2.4.19-rc3 removes the "break" that aborted the module
init of i810_audio.o in case of "not ready" status before probing (line
2656-2663).
On my Epox 4G4A+ mainboard with i845G chipset the ready status was always "0",
so the module could not be loaded. After removing the "break" in line 2663
the module works great: loading, playing serveral MP3s, removing and reloading
were no problem.

Perhaps someone can confirm this so the break could perhaps be removed in the
final Kernel 2.4.19.

if ((codec = kmalloc(sizeof(struct ac97_codec), GFP_KERNEL)) == NULL)

With best regards,
