VT1708/A workaround for Ubuntu 10.10

I got this old mainboard (ASUS M2V-MX SE) which I need to install a newer version of Ubuntu (10.10 in this case) from previously 8.04.  Decided to have a clean install and found that there’s a current bug in kernel regarding the VIA VT1708/A audio card. Here’s what I’ve found in the net


After few minutes of searching for possible solution, finally I’ve  found one that works:


Here’s how:

1. Modify your grub default boot options

$> sudo vi /etc/default/grub

2. Add “pci=use_crs” on your current grub option, which looks like this:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”quiet splash pci=use_crs”

3. Then update your grub.

$> sudo update-grub

4. Reboot and done.
