ACPI is the culprit! (Re: Having problems with 'pcm' and on-board Crystal Sound)

A private e-mail to me mentioned a similar problem on the -current maillist:


After reading that thread, I added a line to device.hints to keep ACPI completely disabled:
and kept these lines in loader.conf:

By golly, IBM Crystal Audio[tm] is working now!
And it's even way better than OSS!   ;) least with the little bit I've tested so far...
(crossing fingers & whatever else come in pairs)

The system feels 'heavier' now -- I bet it is due to irqs not being so fast (edge/level triggers) as with ACPI enabled?

Thank y'all for helping, really appreciate it.
