Description of problem:
My problem lies within the sound card detection piece of the installation
program. The point in the installation where I noticed this bug is in the post
reboot configuration menus. The system has detected a sound card, and it gives
me the option of playing a test sound. When I click on it the first time, I get
nothing. It asks "did you hear the sound" and I say "no". I then try it again,
and then it works. Both times I've tried the install I get the same experience.
I also notice this when I run the redhat-config-soundcard utility from the
command line (post install). When I run it the first time, and select "Play
test sound", I hear nothing. I then answer no to "did you hear the test sound".
At that point it dumps me back to the command prompt. If i run the command
again, it works fine.
Certainly not a critical but, but it would make things a little cleaner if it
worked the first time.
I'm running on a IBM Thinkpad T23.

Actual Results: I have to click "play test sound" a couple of times to get it
to actually play the test sound.
Expected Results: I would expect to click on "play test sound" and it works the
I can't reproduce this behavior on a Thinkpad T30. Please reopen if
you still see this behavior with the RHEL3 final release.
