Description of problem:
snd-atiixp appears to be modprobed correctly, but alsamixer and
soundcard autodetect claim there is no device.
sound worked correctly in 1.3xx kernels
the following line is seen in dmesg output:
ATI IXP AC97 controller: probe of 0000:00:14.5 failed with error -13
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot into 2.6.6-1.435
2. run alsasound and/or autodetect soundcard in X
Actual Results: alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default:
No such device
autodetect brings up the "did you hear the test sound" dialog
_immediately_. no sound produced
Expected Results: alsamixer to come up / guitar strumming.
Still broken as of kernel-2.6.7-1.494.2.2
also still broken as of kernel-2.6.8-1.521 (smp kernel anyway)
I'm using kernel-2.6.8-1.533 from
http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/2.6/RPMS.kernel/ (from a couple of
weeks ago) and it works for me now. I think it was the update to
alsa-1.0.6 that did it.
seems to be fixed in kernel 2.6.9-1.3_FC2 (smp - didn't try UP kernel)
Reappears with Fedora 3 with the difference that the card is detected
but if you want to start the mixer it says that there is no mixer.
What to do ?
do you have a /dev/mixer ?
