nx9040 sound card

February 18, 2005

I am using Fedora Core -3 as my Linux distribution for my Companq nx9040 laptop.

Sometimes, the sound card [ Intel Corp. 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC’97 Audio Controller ] freaks out with following messages —
codec_write 0: semaphore is not ready for register 0x2
codec_write 0: semaphore is not ready for register 0x2

This can be fixed by removing and reinserting the snd_intel8x0 module.
#modprobe -r snd_intel8x0
#modprobe snd_intel8x0

that’s it …
