Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 116378
Soundcard not properly detected
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:37 EST
Description of problem:
system-config-soundcard detects my 82801CA/CAM AC'97 Audio controller
on my Dell Inspirion C840
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
No test sound is played
The message "The snd-intel8x0 driver could not be loaded. This
soundcard may not be compatable with Red Hat Linux"
When running FC1 the sound card was detected. I also used
Freshrpms.net to incorporate ALSA support into FC1 using the
snd-intel8x0 on this same laptop. It worked no problem.
I also checked the mixer settings, setting them to full on, but still
no detection and no sound.
I still get the error message whenever I run system-config-soundcard,
but sound is now working.
I see this problem also.
Should be fixed with system-config-soundcard-1.2.7-3 in Rawhide.
Please reopen if you still see this behavior with the new version.
I had the same issue with a C-Media Electronics card (CM8738). It was
auto-detected in FC1 but not in FC2 although the FC2 PCI probe does
My work-around (forces the right driver load) which works for my setup
consistently: Execute `modprobe snd-cmipci` as the root after logging in.
I got the driver name from the Hardware Browser.
