Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 121069
kudzu did not update /etc/modprobe.conf, did not detect new sound adapter
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:44:15 EDT
Description of problem:
I am reported this on the x86_64 platform because that is where I had
the problems. However, this may apply to all platforms.
I got tired of fight the onboard VIA8233 sound adapter on the ASUS
SK8V mobo. So I disabled the VIA8233 in the BIOS and plugged in an
Ensonic Model 5880 AudioPCI adapter (supported by the snd-ens1371 driver).
When I first booted up after making the change, kudzu detected the
change but did not update /etc/modprobe.com. Furthermore, it did not
detect the new sound adapter and update /etc/modprobe.conf with its stuff.
OK, manuall edit /etc/modprobe.conf to comment out the via82xx stuff
and rebot to try again. kudzu now detected no change. Running
system-config-soundcard recognized the adapter but did not work ...
nothing in /etc/modprobe.conf was changed.
OK, using the old (commented out) stuff for the via82xx as a
"pattern", I created new stuff for the ens1371 (just replaced the names).
Reboot and do lsmod (yes, they are loaded). Run
system-config-soundcard: success, I get sound!
