After some further research, I now tend to believe that the problem is not a
*bug*, but has to do with a configuration issue on this type of laptop (HP
Omnibook 4150). The root cause seems to be the fact that the audio chip is
on the PCI bus but is emulated as an ISA card. Apparently this is not
handled well during hardware autodetection, resulting in no sound. Can you
agree to this diagnosis?
I have found some information on the net indicating that the OSS sound
system seems to be capable to delete the standard drivers and re-detect the
sound chip in its correct configuration. I believe that this should also be
possible from a command window using standard Linux configuration commands.
However, I have no idea how to do that. Could anyone of you point me into a
Maybe it's also a good idea to close this bug report?
