Description Johnny Proton 2004-11-25 11:04:58 EST

Description of problem:
Take a look at the URL provided.  My HP ZD7000 wouldn't play sound,
and it was due to the snd-intel8x0m device not being added to the
hotplug blacklist.  Apparently FC3 thought my soundcard was a USB device.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
This solution on the website the problem perfectly.  I thought this
may also fix bug #135979 but since he mentioned getting some sound to
work, I'm not sure.  Mine wouldn't play any sound at all.

This is the URL.  The "helper" didn't transfer it into the actual bug

Could you please attach your /etc/modprobe.conf as well as your
/etc/sysconfig/hwconf files?

Can you attach output of lsmod and 'aplay -l' when the sound works and when it

The previous 2 attachments are from my working FC3 machine.  

My other system (same laptop vendor, same sound card, same problem) now has FC4
on it.  And it seems that it may be broken worse on FC4 than it was before. 
During the installation process, clicking the "test sound" button during the
soundcard autodetection part actually froze the install completely.  Twice. 

I don't understand how this could happpen!  This is the number 1 Linux distro on
HP laptops, and it seems someone at Redhat would have one of these laptops to
test on.  I'm going to output the output from those commands on FC4 in the next
2 attachments.

Additionally, wanted to let you know that the same fix applied to FC4.  Just had
to blacklist the "snd-intel8x0m" in /etc/hotplug/blacklist and it worked fine.

Someone needs to look into this quickly though.  I'd say a replicated freeze
during installation is a high-priority bug!  Good luck.
