I noticed something this morning.  I'm using SSH to login in, and when I run
ices it pops an hexadecimal error up on the server screen itself.  If I go
to the server and run ices I get the same screen.  (It starts out with
invalid operand: 0000    CPU:0   EIP:  0010:[<d08ba5c1>] Not tainted.
I'll post the full error if needed.  (How do I capture a terminal screen
input?  I usually use putty from my windows pc using ssh and copy the
contents to clipboard, but the error doesn't show up on a client just the

I've tested the soundcard on playback but not on the line in or mic.  I
didn't know how to test those other than using ices.
