Description of problem:
I was using FC2.  I did a fresh install of FC4 and the soundcard quit working. I reloaded FC2 and the sound card started working again.  So I did an upgrade install and the soundcard quit again.  The OS is loaded on a Dell P4 1.8mhz with a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz DSP sound card.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.load the current version of Fedora Core 4

Actual Results:  The sound card quit working

Expected Results:  The sound card should have worked

Additional info:

Comment 1 Jim Haiar 2005-07-02 06:38:21 UTC
Fedore Core 4 recognized the sound card as a Cirrus Logic CS
4614/22/24[CrystalClear Sound Fusion Audio Accelerator   Module snd-cs46xx.

Comment 2 Jim Haiar 2005-07-02 18:27:54 UTC
I reloaded Fedora Core 2 to see if recognized the sound card differently and it
comes up with the same Cirrus Logic Sound card.   I then reloaded Fedora Core 4.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2005-07-04 06:45:03 UTC
Probably a fault in the kernel driver (snd-cs46xx.)

Comment 5 Jim Haiar 2005-07-16 13:46:14 UTC
I received an update on [Bug 143059] No sound from snd_cs46xx. This bug is
marked as a duplicate to it.  The email said that if I am using fc4 to update
that bug. The system would not let me update that bug to reflect fc4, so I
thought I would update this one.  I did try the suggestion of turning on the
external amplifier switch. That did not help.
