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):
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
Fedore Core 4 recognized the sound card as a Cirrus Logic CS
4614/22/24[CrystalClear Sound Fusion Audio Accelerator Module snd-cs46xx.
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.
Probably a fault in the kernel driver (snd-cs46xx.)
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 143059 ***
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.
