I’d say the problem should really fixed at its origin.

This article possibly contains original research. Having a hardware bug in the emu10k1, the hardware can only support DMA from the lowest 2GB of memory because it simply ignores bit 31 of the address.

If the program is started separately, the settings specified in the program itself are applied. Value [CT], playback] No sound at all.

So to add another zone I’d need to increase that to 25 I think and this is way over my head. Robert Mahoney mahoneyr wrote on Module- emu10k1 overveiw ridiculous, even if it doesn’t require patching. Mobile by Shara Tibken Dec 6, It is still present in current distributions, does not appear to be a duplicate, and should not be allowed to expire. During the log, I: There seem to be plans on the LKLM to address this, but it’s unclear how long this will take – after all, the complete kernel page allocator must be re-structured to fix this.



It also included higher quality sound output at all levels, quadrophonic output, and a new MIDI synthesizer with 64 sampled voices. I would love to use my emu10k1 synth chip again since it is less laggy than any software synth. Phones by Shara Tibken Dec 6, The above hack does the trick, and it doesn’t affect stability, but it changes the DMA zones of course – and just doing that for a single card might not be a good argument.

Thus, the kernel memory architecture is too unflexible.

Second is 16 MB space in 4 GB and pages. If an external sound generator is connected, alternatively specify the port number of the external MIDI port.

Creative Sound Blaster Live! The overviww for all this trouble is that the emu10k1 chipset requires DMA from main memory to pick up the samples, and – unfortunately – the DMA engine of the chip is broken. Member feedback about Sound Blaster: After looking into it, this does seem like the single line of code to change. Email me about changes to this bug report.

Solsman Dec 12, Status changed to emy10k1 because the bug affects multiple users.


If the Ubuntu team does not want to pick it up, nor the kernel team wants to pick it up, nothing emk10k1 happen. However, the issue doesn’t ovevriew to be pressing enough to move forward – at least this is my impression. Marcus Brinkmann marcus-brinkmann wrote on Regardless of whether or not it is likely to be followed up, it would be good to have an upstream bug report linked to this one, and you’ve clearly demonstrated your grasp of what the problem is and what the fix needs to be.


Terminate connections established with aconnect with the option -dfor example, aconnect -d I rather utilize the SB Live anyway; loading soundfonts up to 16MB works fine fonts like Aspirin I find to be most interesting so far ; I do want to load at least Fluid fonts though to at least mimic the basic sound I can obtain via software.

Dell Computer Corporation dmi. I tried the patch and it works great though I can’t seem to get the other emuu10k1 to work to increase the limit to 2gb for soundfontsit’s just really inconvenient to recompile the kernel and now after initially compiling it, it doesn’t want to compile again and complains about a signing key. The ROM sound font gurom.

Worked fine with Ubuntu 8. You are not directly subscribed to this bug’s notifications.

Specify the first WaveTable port from the list. Not really, at least not according to my understanding of the situation.

So long, happy hacking, Thomas. This was a later, improved model.
