Description of problem:
When I select the sound card detection option from the RedHat menu it brings up the gui that appears to find a card but when I click to play the sample sound I get no sound.  The hardware is the SUN v1100z and 2100z workstations.  I'm not sure what I'm missing for getting sound from these machines.  In the /var/log/messages file I have the following error messages:

Jun 20 13:30:52 miami kernel: i810: AMD-8111 IOHub found at IO 0x1400 and 0x1000, MEM 0x0000 and 0x0000, IRQ 17

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log onto a Sun 1100z
2.RedHat menu -> System Settings -> Soundcard Detection
3.Click on the box to play the sample sound
  

Actual Results:  I hear no sound.  There is a popup box asking me if I heard a sound.  When I click NO, it says that a sound card was not detected and all the guis disappear.

Expected Results:  I should have heard the sample sound.

Additional info:

I'm not sure if I can classify this as a bug but I can't get sound out of these boxes, and I haven't found any clear answers searching the web.  It might be something simple I'm missing.

What happens if you run a mixer and set the sound there? Is it then audible if
you re-run the tool?
Comment 2 Dwight Marzolf 2005-06-23 13:42:55 EDT
I assume you are talking about using the volume control gui from the Red Hat
menu.  I have put the volume on that up to full 100% and removed the lock check
mark and I still get no sound.
Comment 4 Martin Stransky 2005-07-22 04:59:27 EDT
Could you attach output of 'aplay -l' and lsmod?

Could you check aplay utility from console (and with/without KDE/arts)?
(e.g. aplay -D default /usr/share/sounds/phone.wav)

Could you attach your /etc/modprobe.conf?

Which files do you have in /etc/alsa/pcm?
