I recently installed the unofficial amd64 Debian Sid port on my brand
new amd64 3200+ nvidia nforce3 with an ATI Radeon 9600 SE video card.
xine installs and everything is cool, except that I try to watch my Fight Club
DVD and it tends to drop frames. I selected the xv driver.
I did xine-check. It says DMA is disabled. In my BIOS I enabled the DMA.
Then if I try
[root /home/cabuz]>hdparm -d1 /dev/hdb
setting using_dma to 1 (on)
HDIO_SET_DMA failed: Operation not permitted
using_dma = 0 (off)
Same thing for hdparm -d1 -X34 /dev/hdb and hdparm -d1 -X66 /dev/hdb
My DVD reader is primary ide slave, and the master is a NEC ND3500 DVD writer
that the system does not recognize at all.
My kernel is 2.6.8.
cat /proc/mtrr gives
reg00: base=0x00000000 ( 0MB), size= 512MB: write-back, count=1
reg01: base=0xe0000000 (3584MB), size= 128MB: write-combining, count=1
reg02: base=0xc0000000 (3072MB), size= 128MB: write-combining, count=1
Also, here is what results when right after reboot I do
[root /home/cabuz]>dmesg | grep DMA
PCI-DMA: Disabling IOMMU.

Another question, most likely unrelated.
When I play the DVD I get no sound, but my sound card works because I can play
mp3s and wavs from my hard drive, as well as mp3cds. For regular CDs I get
sound only from the drive directly (the little headphone jack) and for DVDs I
get no sound at all. Any suggestions?
