Description Jonathan Eskritt 2004-05-19 16:02:28 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US;
rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040421

Description of problem:
I have a cmedia sound system built into my mother board. The default
install doesn't let the sound to work (Note I upgraded from Fedora
Core 1). The installer selectes the kernel module cmpci. From

#alias snd-card-0 cmpci

the cmpci module doesn't exist. The corect module is snd-cmipci.
/etc/modprobe.conf needs to be changed to:

alias snd-card-0  snd-cmipci

Additionally, the ALSA web page recommends adding the folowing to the
modprobe.conf file for this driver:

# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0  snd-cmipci

# OSS/Free portion
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0

# card #1
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade from fedora core 1, have a Cmedia chipset


Actual Results:  Sound doesn't work on upgrade, non-existent sound
driver selected (cmpci)

Expected Results:  sound should work, and the correct driver should be
setup (snd-cmipci)

Had the exact same issue on upgrading FC1 to FC2.  Running
/usr/sbin/alsaconf adds the correct alias to /etc/modprobe.conf.  The
reference to obsolete cmpci module must be removed manually.

Comment 2 Jonathan Eskritt 2004-05-20 01:14:42 EDT
/usr/sbin/aslaconf ins't installed by default on my system. The only
alsa command in /usr/sbin is alsactl. Which RPM is alsaconf installed
Comment 3 Jack Spaar 2004-05-20 02:13:17 EDT
Whoops.  I had a newer version of alsa-utils installed from fedora.us
before upgrading to FC2.  Version 1.0.4-0 of alsa-utils from Fedora.US
contains /usr/sbin/alsaconf: 

I downgraded to the FC2 version (alsa-utils-1.0.3-1) and there is no
more alsaconf.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2004-05-24 17:43:28 EDT
This is a mapping file bug.
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2004-05-24 17:46:47 EDT
I'm assuming if you change snd-cmpci to snd-cmipci in
/usr/share/hwdata/upgradelist, and then re-run
/usr/sbin/module_upgrade, it will correct the file.

This is fixed in current trees.
