Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 124112
Sound card not detected on Dell GX1
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:45:31 EDT
Description of problem:
I have a Dell Optiplex GX1 with a built-in sound card. The sound
card is not detected by the installer. I had Redhat 9.0 previously
on this system and the sound card was detected perfectly and the
module loaded was 'cs4232 ' .But actually the card is CS4236B as
per the DELL specifications.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Kudzu should be able to detect soundcard
If I try to load snd-cs4232 module using modprobe I get the
following error :
root]# modprobe snd-cs4232
FATAL: Error inserting snd_cs4232
Hence I tried installing the CS4236 module using modprobe, this
module does get loaded but still I do not have any sound.
Also the system-config-soundcard doesn't detect any soundcard.

I have this problem with my Optiplex GX1, running "Linux defiant.
liftingmind.com 2.4.21-15.0.2.EL #1 Wed Jun 16 23:12:30 EDT 2004 i686
i686 i386 GNU/Linux", which I just installed and updated today.
However, Salil's message gave me a hint, and I found the following
sequence let me activate my sound card - I'm playing a CD right now.
sudo insmod sound
sudo insmod uart401
sudo insmod ad1848
sudo insmod cs4232
So here's a workaround, fwtw...Peter
