Description Dimitri Papadopoulos 2004-02-16 19:04:02 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; fr-FR; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113

Description of problem:
This is probably more related to the kernel than to firstboot. If so,
sorry about that, I wasn't sure which component to choose.

I'm running firstboot manually from the command-line, because of bug

This is the command-line:
$ export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
$ firstboot

The system is a Dell Latitude CPx laptop (model PPX, Latitude C family).

I get past the first pages, "Welcome", "License Agreement", "Date and
Time", "Display", "User Account". There's a problem with "Sound Card"

The "Sound Card" page displays:
	Vendor: ESS Technology
	Model:  ES1983S Maestro-3i PCI Audio Accelerator
	Module: snd-maestro3

Then I click on button "Play test sound". The first time I ran the
test I got no error message, but the test failed: no sound was played.
So I answered "No" to the message box asking "Did you hear the sample

After rebooting, I have been consistently seeing this additional
message when performing the same routine:
	The snd-maestro3 driver could not be loaded. This
	soundcard may not be compatible with Red Hat Linux.

This soundcard used to work properly with FC1.

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

How reproducible:

What happens if you just load it by hand, run 'aumix' or 'alsamixer'
to turn up the volume,and then play a sound?

Comment 2 Dimitri Papadopoulos 2004-02-17 09:43:09 UTC
Actually the module *is* loaded, if that's what you mean:
	# lsmod
	snd_maestro3           25636  1
	snd_ac97_codec         52612  1 snd_maestro3

I'm unable to find "alsamixer" on the system:
	# locate alsamixer

I tried "aumix". The volume was indeed set at minimum. I modified the
colume level and was then able to hear the terminal bell or play a
sound for example with:
	# cat /usr/share/man/fr/man1/alsamixer.1.gz > /dev/dsp

However I'm still unable to hear the sample sound from within
firstboot. So I answer "No" to the dialog that asks "Did you hear thee
sample sound?" and then I get this message "Automatic detection of the
sound card did not work. Audio will not be available on the system.
Please click OK to continue."

After that I can't play sounds. If I run "aumix" again, I see that the
volume level is actually set to 0.

Just a guess: Maybe firstboot is resetting the volume level to 0? This
is what I see on the console...
	# firstboot
	* dccprobe retruned bogus values:
	ID:   None
	Name: None
	HorizSync: None
	VertSync:  None
	vol set to 0, 0, P
	pcm set to 0, 0
	speaker set to 0, 0
	mic set to 0, 0, R
	cd set to 0, 0, P

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2004-02-20 16:30:33 UTC
Firstboot needs to override the default ALSA volume setting, which is 0.
