Description Van 2003-07-21 04:18:04 EDT
Description of problem: Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): I am using basically RH8 on Intel 4 having built-in duplex sound chipset, but upgraded kernel-2.4.20-8, which has the gnome-volume fixed from couple of bugs in unresolve symbols from the kernel-2.4.18-14. Yes, it indeed solved it and I am able to run redhat-config-soundcard with sound tested fine. All soundcore ac97 i810 modules loaded and work fine. However, there's a problem : I can't play CDs. It plays alright, but can't hear a thing. I did unmute volumes and set to max, but still don't hear CDs play. It was obvious that I heard sound when doing the test sound card. Would u plz give me some explanations why and how to fix it? Appreciate it. How reproducible: From normal RH8, with kernel upgraded to 2.4.20-8, test the sound card work fine, but don't hear anyting when playing CDs. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Upgrade to kernel-2.4.20-8 only requires upgrade to SysVinit, vixies-cron, pam-*. 2. Able to load soundcore, i810_audio, and ac97 modules 3. Run command redhat-config-soundcard testing soundcard works fine, but can't hear anything from playing CDs. Actual results: Expected results: Additional info: p.s : I guess this problem isn't much common since I have looking around, but haven't found anyone has the same problem as mine. I bet there are, but haven't encountered yet.

I managed to open the syslog, and found these problems (if it helps) : register_serial(): autoconfig failed modprobe: modprobe: can't locate module sound-service-0-3 modprobe: modprobe: can't locate module char-major-0-134 thanks. -van

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2003-08-06 17:05:42 EDT
Some people have mentioned that some newer computers don't have the wire from the CD player to the sound card, so the CD has to be played by sucking the music data off the CD, pushing it through the CPU, and then out to the sound card. This may be the issue. In any case, if you try a different CD-playing program (kscd, workman, maybe xmms, not sure what all there is) do they work? Is this specific to gnome-cd-player?
Comment 4 Van 2003-08-06 21:09:29 EDT
I tried with ksCD and xmms ( I dont' have workman ) too, but they all are the same. They play the CDs without sound. Somehow, I don't think it's only specific to gnome-cd. I wonder if it has anything to do with the kernel- 2.4.20 ? Basically, everything is of RH8, except kernel-2.4.20-18 of RH9. Well, without this kernel my java (j2sdk) won't work. All the volume set to max, and for sure it's not muted since I double- checked with aumix already. I am able to hear "event sounds", but not CDs music. Any idea what's wrong? It can't be that my cd's wire not connected to the sound card since it works perfectly in Winxp. However, I heard something about enable/disable option for cdrom or something from some guy in "linuxquestions.org". Too bad, that guy only mentioned it, but didn't give any direction to how to "enable/disable" it. Or, maybe it's just blablabla...I have no idea. -van
Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2003-08-06 21:15:57 EDT
The point about the sound-card-to-CD wire is exactly that Windows no longer requires that wire, since it can go from CD to soundcard via the CPU. But Linux CD players don't do this yet. At least that's what I understood. Anyway, it sounds like the issue is a general one with the CD ioctls etc. rather than GNOME, so moving bug.
Comment 6 Van 2003-08-07 01:49:30 EDT
I think Havoc Pennington alreay helped me move the bug to kernel category. But, to be sure, sorry if you receive this twice. Well, the above description is the problem I am trying to figure out. Really appreciate your help. ( Also, I checked my CPU internal, but couldn' find anywhere for the "wire" from cdrom to soundcard. Well, basically it's built-in, so I am not sure if there should be any wire for that purpose ). -van

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem persists. The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
