v1.9.3 is now available:
uniaud16.sys from Uniaud 1.1.4RC5 (or later) is the recommended version
From the readme:
This build of uniaud32.sys has the ALSA code level based completely on ALSA
1.0.16. Uniaud 1.1.4rc5 is based on ALSA versions ranging from 0.9.x
through to 1.0.14. The aim is to provide a version of Uniaud based on the
absolute latest ALSA Code - this is a stepping stone on the way to that.
This will become Uniaud32 2.0 once we feel that it is stabilised and offers
improved support for Audio than Uniaud 1.1.x
Due to the backlevelling of some code - some sound cards that currently
work with Uniaud 1.1.4rc5 may not work with this build.
Specifically, due to compilation issues, the following backends are NOT
- emu10k1 (aka sb live) - linux code loads the firmware from a local
drive in later ALSA versions - this isn't working yet on OS/2
As time permits, support for these will be reinstated.
The source is now in SVN and can be browsed at
If traps in module ACPI are seen at startup, please ensure you're using an
ACPI version > = 3.05
Changes since 1.9.2 (1st April release)
- Fix hardware sample rate setting (again) - fixes Trap 0008 playing
startup sound on some hardware
- Various tidyups
- Bump version number to 1.9.3
- some changes to try and reduce file size of uniaud32.sys
Thanks to all those testers who have provided feedback on the 1.9.x
releases that are based on ALSA 1.0.16!!!
All feedback is greatly appreciated, particularly any improvements or
deteriorations compared with Uniaud 1.1.4
