On the AlphaStation 200, of the type that came from ONSALE in large quantities
recently, I had the same problem. Sound died between 2.1.115 and 2.1.116. I
went crazy trying to figure it out.
It is NOT the sound drivers themselves at fault. It is the PCI code. Should
you indeed have the same box, or any 'avanti' based system, the code just
needs a little patch. The following fix worked for me:
--- linux/arch/alpha/kernel/sys_sio.c.orig Sat Oct 24 15:24:56 1998
- sio_pci_fixup(noname_map_irq, 0x0b0a090f);
+ sio_pci_fixup(noname_map_irq, 0x0b0a0e0f);
