Description Salil Gokhale 2004-05-24 02:37:14 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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Kudzu should be able to detect soundcard
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

If I try to load  snd-cs4232 module using modprobe I get the
following error :
root]# modprobe snd-cs4232
FATAL: Error inserting snd_cs4232
(/lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358/kernel/sound/isa/cs423x/snd-cs4232.ko): No
such device
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
