ISA SB Gold type 1 AWE/64 problems

Hello to all,

I've installed latest oss drivers (licensed) on FreeBSD 5.2.1 and here are the issues:

1. ACPI: sound does't work with ACPI enabled. I need to disabled it with hint.acpi.0.disabled=1 in device.hints.

Notes: The same happens with FreeBSD native drivers (pcm sbc).

2. ossxmix doesn't run:
/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libintl.so.5" not found

Shouldn't this be documented? Or possibly fixed?

Thanks very much,

Nuno Teixeira

I wonder if you need to upgrade your gtk/glib version. Or maybe we need
to update ours.

Dev, the latest libintl.so in the FreeBSD ports is libintl.so.6

I 'fixed' the problem with ossxmix by installing /usr/ports/editors/bvi (a vi clone that does binary files), then:

bvi ossxmix

and changing the so.5 to so.6 in the binary.

Horrible, I know, but it works ;)

I can't comment, as I have had to disable ACPI since 5.2 for other reasons

(ACPI worked with 5.1 for me, and so did oss)

Hi,

It's strange but everyone tells me to do that way. Disable ACPI. I'm trying to find why? Certainly is a ACPI bug but I don't know if FreeBSD team is working on a fix right now.

Thanks,

Nuno Teixeira

I'd prefer not to have disabled ACPI, but it was the only way I could get 5.2.1 to boot :)

And I'd prefer to liase with the ACPI guys who seem pretty open at dealing with specific ACPI problems, I've just not got around to it yet...

Note: Freebsd 5.3 is due out at the end of this month (august)

As for the sound/acpi issue, have you tried contacting the ACPI people on the freebsd team with the output from various ACPI diagnostics?

It's all detailed here: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO885 ... debug.html

Cheers,
Jamie

for your second quiestion:

i had the same problem, fixed it by making a soft link named libintl.so.5 in /usr/local/lib/ that linked to libintl.so.6

(a rathe dirty way to do it i guess, but at least ossxmix now works..)
