Just to confirm that in the real 2.1.120 (but not in 2.1.120-3),
rvplayer does indeed have a "general error", and a 'cat' from
/dev/dsp fails on CTRL-C being issued: the 'cat segfaults, an OOPS
occurs ... and I'm afraid I don't know how to debug an OOPS from a
module (kernel OOPSes are OK).
After the OOPS, the kernel regularly reports: Sound overrun (about
once per second).
The card here is a Tropez Plus, using the new Wavefront driver with
the cs4232 chip driver.
Replacing the 2.1.120 sound modules with everything from 2.1.119
(and forcing the loading of the modules appropriately) returns
things to working order.
I don't mean to be negative -- but it's very late at night and I
can't bear going to sleep with a machine that's not 100% working!
Still, I'm sure there's a better way than this quick-and-dirty fix
of just using 2.1.119's modules.
Now I'm going to leave 2.1.120 running overnight and tomorrow to see
if it falls over, as was reported on the List a few hours ago.
