My laptop finally starts to sing
By pengyang on Jun 16, 2008
I live without sound for a long time as I have a desktop box that audio part works and no media player can meet my requirement. But when Songbird is available on OpenSolaris, I started to hate my DELL laptop(Sigmatel) for the missing audio driver. OSS is where I tried to find help first. Well, it works ... partly. It seems that OSS conflicted with some other part of the system, and sometimes hang the laptop. For some other case, the system will just reboot automatically several second after I login to the desktop. That's really horrible. It's sad that I can only remove OSS from my laptop to make it a workable system.
Just like the rainbow after the storm, the availability of the audio driver makes me feel that the whole world becomes even better.
