Description of problem:
I have an onboard Yamaha OPL3-SA2 chipset, which Red Hat and Fedora
have never detected right. In the 2.4.x kernels, I just had to change
the alias in /etc/modules.conf to the opl3sa2 driver and everything
was dandy. I'm not sure which driver is being loaded (now with the
2.6.x+ALSA stuff, but it doesn't work (the gnome mixer applet reports
no device found). The ones I see are snd_pcm_oss, snd_pcm,
snd_page_alloc, snd_timer, snd_mixer_oss, snd, and soundcore. So I
unload them with `modprobe -r snd_pcm_oss` and load the correct driver
with `modprobe -a snd_opl3sa2`. It says it can't find a supported device.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open terminal
2. `modprobe -r snd_pcm_oss`
3. confirm all sound modules unloaded with lsmod
4. `modprobe -a snd_opl3sa2`
Actual Results: [root@dragon root]
# modprobe -a snd_opl3sa2
FATAL: Error inserting snd_opl3sa2
(/lib/modules/2.6.2-1.81smp/kernel/sound/isa/snd-opl3sa2.ko): No such

Expected Results: The module should load and I should have access to
my sound card.
Problem persists on kernel-smp-2.6.2-1.87. I had the thought to
install sndconfig, but that doesn't seem to be available any more.
not sure if this will matter too much, but this is an ISA audio chipset.
Oh yeah, system-config-sound (and all the redhat-config-sound versions
before) don't detect the chipset, which is why I though to use sndconfig.
Problem still exists in kernel-smp-2.6.3-1.91.
I also have this problem on FC2T3 w/kernel 2.6.5-1.349. However,
from the kernel boot log, it does appear that the ISA PNP card is now
being detected properly.
I'm no longer using the Yamaha audio chipset, so I don't really care
about this anymore.
