1) type listdev in terminal, save as text file and use attach file button here to upload.
2) also, attach syslog to this ticket.

comment:2 by stargatefan, 10 years ago

Attempted to run the listdev. Machine crashs.

comment:3 by tonestone57, 10 years ago

1) create another ticket saying "listdev crashes on Nvidia 8300 chipset". Attach picture of the crash with backtrace (bt) to that ticket.

2) attach your syslog to both tickets found in /boot/common/var/log.

3) you have to make this ticket more specific. Each ticket is only for 1 issue. So, split this into three or more tickets, ie: one ticket for sound, one for networking, one for listdev crashing, etc....

as of version 36769 this issue is resolved. almost all chipset features work including networking. If there is a testing utility to ensure proper function I will run it but I am send this from the machine in the ticket.

XFX hd5770 Radeon Video Card M4n78pro MB AMD 9550 CPU

Works. I have not tested audio as of yet. I don't see have VIA Audio support.

Via 1712 audio is currently not supported. at least ib toos with networking support now and see's 90% of the hardware.

If someone would help I would like to get a audio driver working.I don't mind doing the leg work and even some basic coding.

I also have a mdaudio delta 1010 lt that is unseen. I will be contacting Maudio about there linux driver and see if they will open source it.

kill the ticket. at 2 weeks of good operation I would consider these issues resolved.

Resolution: invalid
Status: newclosed

Weird, but ok. Since nothing was fixed, it may have been a setup issue?

Umm the kernel would crash and did not recognize any of the hardware. Something was changed " or repaired" in the builds.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
