Description Brian G. Anderson 2004-02-20 17:11:17 UTC
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):

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run system-config-soundcard
Actual results:
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"

Expected results:
soundcard detected

Additional info:
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.

Comment 1 Brian G. Anderson 2004-02-23 18:22:26 UTC
I still get the error message whenever I run system-config-soundcard,
but sound is now working.

Comment 2 ANDRIAMANANJARA Tahirisoa 2004-02-25 21:31:19 UTC
I see this problem also.

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2004-03-11 20:54:52 UTC
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
see it.  

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.
