Description Féliciano Matias 2004-09-27 10:55:17 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
This is what it is currently push by kudzu to configure sound card :

alias snd-card-1 snd-via82xx
options snd-card-1 index=1
install snd-via82xx /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-via82xx &&
/usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-via82xx { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; };
/sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-via82xx

If "modprobe snd-via82xx" is done then "index=1" is not honored.

"alsactl restore" failed if udev is enabled. See #133535 .

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
modprobe the second card first (like initscrips does in my system).
That is :
snd-ens1371 => snd-card-0
snd-via82xx => snd-card-1

At boot time, initscript does "modprobe snd-via82xx" before "modprobe

Actual Results:
$ cat /proc/asound/cards
0 [V8233Pre       ]: VIA8233 - VIA 8233-Pre
                     VIA 8233-Pre at 0xd400, irq 4

Expected Results:
$ cat /proc/asound/cards
1 [V8233Pre       ]: VIA8233 - VIA 8233-Pre
                     VIA 8233-Pre at 0xd400, irq 4

Additional info:

With udev the following line in modprobe.conf is useless :
install snd-XXXX /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-XXXX &&
/usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :

Comment 1 Féliciano Matias 2004-09-27 10:58:18 UTC
Created attachment 104360 [details]
improve index sound card

Add :
options snd-XXXX index=n

remove :
install snd-XXXX /sbin/modprobe ...

Comment 2 Féliciano Matias 2004-09-27 11:08:51 UTC
Since FC3 use udev, "alias snd-card-X snd-XXXX" is useless.
snd-card-X is used to autoload module. But udev does not feet with

Also, "remove <module>..." in modprobe.conf does not support alias. So
"modprobe -r snd-card-X" does not store the setting of the card.

Perhaps it's time to remove this alias.

The previous patch change module_upgrade.c . I don't test module_upgrade.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-09-27 16:04:56 UTC
"remove <module>" it's intentional that it doesn't support alias.
Nothing will ever call 'modprobe -r snd-card-X',  AFAIK; things will
only remove the specific module. (and that's rare enough.)

Comment 4 Féliciano Matias 2004-09-27 17:56:02 UTC
So, why to keep "alias snd-card-X ...." ?

This alias is interesting in one case (AFAIK) :
$ modprobe -c | grep "alias.*snd-card-" | cut -f 3 -d ' '

kmodule also provide these informations :
$ kmodule | grep AUDIO | cut -f 2 -d ' '

Before udev (with a static /dev) this alias was usefull for
autoloading sound modules. With udev we have to explicitly load the
module (initscript, modprobe, etc).

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2005-04-22 18:29:13 UTC
A version of this added in 1.1.112-1.

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2005-04-22 22:26:41 UTC
Oops, 1.1.113-1.
