Description Need Real Name 2003-07-28 08:55:46 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows 98)

Description of problem:
This is a problem going back to at least RH 7.3 and sound-configuration.

I have a cs4237 based card which is recognised and always loads when you type 
modprobe cs4232, however it does not load on boot.

The reason is that in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit the sound modules initialisation 
string checks for the line
options sound dmabuf=1 
in /etc/modules.conf which is not setup by kudzu etc

So adding this line in /etc/moudules.conf or amending /etc/rc.sysinit makes 
sound load on bootup.

I dont know how many sound cards this affects, but certainly is a problem with 
mine (which is a isa pnp)

How does sound not loading automatically cause problems?

Comment 5 Miloslav Trmac 2003-07-28 17:52:27 UTC
The driver might not be able to allocate enough memory accessible via ISA

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2003-07-28 18:25:23 UTC
Without the option mentioned, it won't statically allocate it anyway, so in the
case where the option is not there, loading it early won't help.
