Description of problem:
This problem have been introduced by RedHat 9. Previous versions (7.3, 8, 8.1)
were not affected).
The installer declares that the Audio card onboard my Acer 351tev is probably
not compatible with RedHat Linux.
Here are the details of what happens:

This comes from /var/log/messages after I try a modprobe for the trident.o module:
