Description PE Meunier 2004-03-25 16:24:09 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98)

Description of problem:
I don't if the kernel is really responsible for that, but kernel 2.6 
gave the same error under RedHat 9.

Even recompiled as a builtin feature, my AC'97 (intel i8x0) sound 
card does not work.

When I try the graphical configuration utility, it reads "Unable to 
load snd-i8x0 driver. This sound card may not be compatible with 
RedHat linux"

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot the system with this card

Which kernel RPM version are you using? 

Please see this:

The name of the module has changed. You will need to update
/etc/modprobe.conf. Then run alsamixer and unmute 'Master' and 'PCM'.

fixed in latest updates ?

Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 05:03:03 UTC
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat.  The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.

If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.

Thank you.
