Description of problem:
During the firstboot, system-config-soundcard failed to test sound on
Dell Precision 650n (integrated AC'97 Audio Controller)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a fresh FC3 Test 1
2. Follow Firstboot steps
3. system-config-soundcard failed to test sound on Dell P650n due to
it set PCM-2 channel to 0 by default. No sound can be heard during the
sound testing.

Actual Results:  It was necessary to run volume-control and set PCM-2
channel to about 80% in order to hear test sound for

Expected Results:  It should have set PCM-2 channel to about 80%
during the firstboot step in order to hear test sound for

This line in the /etc/modprobe.conf should have unmuted the sound:
install sound-slot-0 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install sound-slot-0 && {
/bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :; }

Could you try:
1) Remove the driver from the kernel with rmmod
2) Remove (or move away) /etc/.aumixrc
3) Launch "modprobe sound-slot-0" and check that the mixers are unmuted

Comment 2 Thomas Chung 2004-07-23 23:57:16 UTC
It seems the actual entries in /etc/modprobe.conf is different than
what you've described.

Please see modprobe.conf from:

Notice, lsmod shows 'snd_intel8x0' but modprobe.conf shows
'snd-intel8x0'   Could this be a typo?

Also it did not create /etc/.aumixrc file since it's using
/usr/sbin/alsactl instead of /bin/aumix-minimal

I've also included some screenshots which shows,
'volume-control-tab1.png' PCM-2 channel is set to 0 by default and
this is why I could not hear any test sound during the firstboot steps.  

Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2004-09-30 23:52:42 UTC
I've added some code to unmute PCM-2 as well. Will be in rawhide soon
(ie. after the freeze).

(you can try and copy the code that sets Master and PCM, and add a
"PCM-2" case yourself to soundcardBackend.py, if you want to test this).
