This weekend I've been installing Debian 2.2 on an HP Pavilion 8756C,
and I haven't been able to get sound working. The machine has an
Intel 810e multifunction contoller onboard. The i810_audio module
seems to be able to find the right device, but can't seem to use it
because it reports IRQ 0.
To me, this sounds like the BIOS isn't properly configuring the
device; however, I've already set the installed OS in the BIOS to
other (which I had to do to get the ethernet card's IRQ properly
initialized). I've also set the "Audio Codec" BIOS option to
"Enabled," which I assumed would do the appropriate device
initialization. (If that is set to Disabled, then the driver doesn't
even find a device.)
I've also have tried using setpci to set the IRQ, but with no
success. I'm not sure if I'm setting the right device, because the
output of lspci doesn't change (although specific IRQ queries do).
The command I'm using is "setpci -s 0:.5 interrupt_line=9". A
device_id query returns 2415, which seems to be the right device based
on the output of lspci.
Below I've included the relevant parts of the kernel log and the
output of lspci -vv. So, does anyone have a clue what's going on?
