Description Mart 2004-02-17 07:54:47 EST
Description of problem:
Detection of the sound card does not seem to work. Playing a test
sound does work however, but other sound utilities like xmms do not work.
After pressing "Play test sound" the following error dialog appears:
"The snd-intel8x0 driver could not be loaded.  This soundcard may not
be compatible with Red Hat Linux."

Using lsmod shows that the driver is loaded:

Actual results:
The snd-intel8x0 driver could not be loaded.  This soundcard may not
be compatible with Red Hat Linux.

Additional info:
xmms does not work at all. It displays the dialog "Couldn't open
Audio" after trying to play ogg-files.
Comment 1 Justin 2004-02-17 09:18:27 EST
I have the same problems, but when I run the soundcard detection
application, and play the test sound... after the error regarding the
module is displayed, the sound is successfully played. From then on,
sound output is iffy from app to app (xmms, no... gaim, yes... etc.)

THe same thing happens to me, except it never detects my sound card.:

Same thing here.  But get no sound at all, not even the system bell.

lsmod shows:

Comment 4 Justin 2004-02-25 20:59:12 EST
After updating to current rawhide packages, using 
system-config-soundcard-1.2.4-1, everything appears to be 
functioning as intended. 
 
It detects the soundcard, plays the test sound, questions whether I 
heard it or not, and never complains about the sound module.
