svn_99: oss_audigyls freezes system and no reboot possible

Postby raw » Fri Oct 17, 2008 2:42 pm

Steps to reproduce:

1) Download either OSS 4.0 or OSS 4.1-rc2
2) pkgadd -d the package
3) add_drv -m '* 0666 root sys' -i '"pci1102,7"' audigyls

The system becomes unresponsive. No methods of input works. SSHing into the Box is possible though.
DMESG:
Oct 16 23:39:35 morpork pci_pci: [ID 370704 kern.info] PCI-device: pci1102,100a@0, oss_audigyls0
Oct 16 23:39:35 morpork genunix: [ID 936769 kern.info] oss_audigyls0 is /pci@0,0/pci8086,244e@1e/pci1102,100a@0

Issuing a reboot seems to terminate the box just fine, allthough on the screen nothing happens. The machine never comes up again, without a power cycle.
After the power cycle booting of OpenSolaris is impossible. The System freezes during the booting phase, visible only the license information.

You should boot up the machine in safe mode and mount the root partition and type pkgrm -R /a oss

Reboot the machine and then reinstall OSS and reboot the system one more time. See if this works. If you are installing OSS 4.1 ensure you remove the 4.0 version (pkgrm oss) and vice versa since the driver files names are differenrt.

I cannot boot into failsafe mode (-s). Same problem. I tried with OSS 4.0 and 4.1 and in both cases the box was unusable.

Is this on Sparc or X86? On x86 use the Failsafe method. boot -s is single user mode - not the failsafe mode.

Since svn_99 doesn't have a failsave mode I reinstalled 2008.05 updated to svn_99 and installed OSS 4.1rc2 again. Same problem. (I tried with 4.0 as well.)

I reinvestigated this issue with OSS 4.1-rc2 and OSS 4.1-rc4 (hg head) on svn_101b (OpenSolaris 2008.11). Exactly the same problem.

how to recover

Postby zolyfarkas » Tue Jan 06, 2009 6:55 pm

boot from live cd

su root
password: opensolaris

zpool import rpool
zfs set mountpoint=/a rpool/ROOT/opensolaris
zfs mount rpool/ROOT/opensolaris

pkgrm -R /a oss

now your system should boot.

in my case with 4.1-1051 and snv_101b system becomes unbootable after installing oss.

OK, system boots, but what about sound? :)

System is still crashing with oss-4.1-1052 and svn_111b (OpenSolaris 2009.06)

I'm having the same problem on OpenSolaris 2009.06, although with via97 driver module. Thanks to zolyfarkas' instructions I was able to remove the offending package (oss-solaris-v4.1-1052) and get the machine to boot.
What's wrong with the oss drivers?
