Description of problem:
SPDIF output doesn't work on my onboard C-Media 8738 using the
cmpci driver included in the FC1 kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC1 and update to the latest packages
2. Play a sound file.
Actual Results: No output on CM8738's SPDIF port.
Expected Results: Signal on the SPDIF port.
I replaced cmpci.c with the one included in the stock 2.4.22 kernel
and now it works fine.
It seems that there's a backported patch from 2.4.23 that broke it.
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
