Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install 2.6.0 test kernels on CS4236B such as Dell Optiplex GX1
2. run modprobe cs4236

Actual Results:  No sound since 2.4.x kernels

Expected Results:  module CS4236B will load and system will have sound capabilities.

Additional info:

I have tried configuring alsa, but I'm lost in the configuration.  I've read
where Alan Cox has stated that the PnP layer has changed somewhat in the 2.5
series, and that the author will need to provide examples on how to update all
PnP drivers.

I too get no sound on GX1.  Modules load fine.  Tried reloading all
modules.  Not a peep.  Device shows in /proc/isapnp fine.

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

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/
