Subject: Inspiron 8000 makes high pitch noise only with 2.6.0-test1
Date: Tue, 15 Jul 2003 09:39:45 +0200 (CEST)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <4299.194.175.125.228.1058254785.squirrel@mailbox.TU-Berlin.DE> (raw)

Hi there,
yesterday I tried the 2.6.0-test1 kernel for the first time.
Installation went flawlessly. However I noticed a high pitch
noise from my notebook everytime after the ethernet driver
was loaded, no matter which one (eepro100 or e100).
It is exactly the noise that my notebook only did with 2.4
when _actually_ transmitting data on IRDA.
I have no clue whatsoever how the same noise is being triggered
by the 2.6 kernel. Disabling IRDA (kernel+BIOS) didn't help.
Since that noise is somewhat nerving, I would be very happy
if someone has an idea how to fix that.
This noise does definitely not appear on 2.4 kernel except when
IRDA is active. On 2.6 I can hear it all the time one the
ethernet driver is loaded. It is only interrupted by heavy disc
activity.
Does anybody has an idea?

Please CC me on reply.

Thank you
Daniel
